How are hibernating mammals a hot issue ever? Why aren't you worried about humans eating out of the trash? Go away and take your performing arts center with you.

Regarding the bear issue. This is also a garbage and recycling issue since the Town is striving to pack the downtown region every summer weekend. The added dual recycling/trash cans were absolutely needed in 2013 in downtown. And yes, they all need to be bear proof given the failure of the Town to pass ordinances to enforce restaurants and other businesses to lock up their garbage.

As far as the Trustees are concerned, after three hours, the vote came up to spend $19,500 from a ten million dollar budget to help pay for 24 dual containers. The vote was 5 to 1 in favor. Only Eric Blackhurst voted "no" and he is the Trustee who is out of touch.

Give me a break. Next we will have to bow to another interest groups whims on having trash containers that hover three feet off the ground. Just because a bunch of Lezbian homewreckers love bears more than money, and are all on handouts because they don't know nutting about budgets or spending less money than they take in, we have to foot the bill for a bunch of trash containers that will cause the bears to start attacking children. The first kid killed by a bear will be the end of the bears, and the unintended (or probably intended) consequence of not giving the bears easy access to food is to have them kill all our children. BearsRNuts wants to see kids killed. Kid killers.
