how cost efficient is this? when truck has to go up and down each street so many times to accomplish
garbage pick up? The entire process on our street yesterday took at least 4 hours, WM did the street in 15 minutes or less on garbage day
we'd pay double to return to WM
the big blue truck blocks our driveway
WM did not cost double of what we presently are paying for inferior waste service taking all day to do job which WM did more efficiently in much less time with less disruption to neighborhoods.

In the future, another commission using BRAINS (unless there is no such thing) probably will realize less is not always best, paying $12 for three months more on each bill for WM makes sense because you would get much better service. Take a look at the streets, there are pieces of garbage scattered about which fall from the lifter truck. Not a good technique. WM left clean streets, the driver of WM truck swept up anything which fell out of toters. You can see the difference on our streets!

Samething goes for choosing the least costly contractor to do north

Good luck.
The parking along Bouganvilla is an offense committed by the town against Walgreens & against owner residents on South Bouganvilla. Citizens living along South Bouganvilla join together against the parking which changes the face of & use of the street turning it into extra parking for the town; placing negative healthwise impact upon residents, unsafe for children on the street.
Apartment rentals on the street have been adversely affected.

the town is turning into parking lot

leave Commercial Blvd the way it is
Commercial Blvd should not be redone; stop the proposed construction which could take longer than one year, save the money for a rainy day

When the town becomes part of Pompano or Fort Laud prices
will change, those towns charge more for outdoor cafe which
keeps comfortable cushion on tax base.

Inferior garbage service does create unsafe drivin conditions for some seniors trying to dodge so many garbage trucks; also, yes, we have noticed more barking in the residential neighborhoods because far too many trucks come up and down the streets more often than seems necessary in residential and with more than 90%+ residents own pets the barking has increased along with the extra garbage trucks.
Have you heard the old dog daily howling because it is evidently
not allowed inside the hous but left out in a yard alone during working hours to bother the neighbors.
Face it, presently we have employed an inferior garbage service
WM cost little bit more but definitely IS far superior garbage service.
Your figures are incorrect. I know that your claim that 90% are dog owners is untrue. Most of my friends who live in town are not dog owners. Perhaps if you are referring to the number of dogs in town (some of which in homes with more than four dogs) and divide this by the number of households in town, you will come up an inflated ownership number. Remember that housing that many dogs in one house is against code.

A year or 18 months ago town removed parking requirements for new restaurants. A new restaurants can come in without having to prove that it has any parking for its patrons.
The Commission was for it and actually the administration was against it.
If I am wrong with my recollection somebody please correct me.
interesting
so thats why several new eateries have popped up in vacant
storefronts

too many new places brings more exposed garbage cans in alleyways which provides food for rats
