After several articles about raising fees for garbage collection, I still haven't read where one commissioner believes increases are justified. Also if further decreases where planned or anticipated where's the reasoning for the reversal? Additionally, cooments like "I don't think it makes sense to do anything until 2009, Smith said" are laughable/incompetent. Get ready for competition, determine incorporated vs non-incorporated differences, learn what cost factors are rising, understand more about the incinerator debt payoff and how to explain it to residents as to why it has a "variable payoff schedule" by just raising the fees. Get going now not when the contract expires. Thanks Jennifer..continue the "no" vote

I agree with you, well stated! Why should the unincorporated folks have to pay higher fees....makes no sense

Unincorporated folks will pay if the proposed new venues are built inside city limits. Why shouldn't unincorporated folks help revitalize Parramore? Did you cause the deterioration? Some politicans may think so. I do not.

I agree as well...they should vote "NO" to any garbage fee increase. And why would they only raise the fee for unicorporated citizens?...sounds crazy to me.

What does Lake County have to do with Orange County and the venues? If Lake County un-incorporated fees are hiked there shouldn't be a link to the venues in Orange County or Orange County un-incorporated.

I'm lost!!!!
