Of all I read, this blog is the most boring.

Thanks for your contribution.
You are obviously one of those people who finds solace in judging others, because they are unable to contribute. Bet you have never threw your hat in the ring or taken risks. You are what you will always be.
And that's fine.
But don't interfere with others from trying to do something positive. Because for lack of a better word, its evil.
If others what to rise up and try to make a positive difference, enjoy life through them. Doesn't matter what side of the issue they are on, don't be jealous. Deep down you know you are. Have a nice weekend.

Why don't all you numb-nuts just swap business cards and get together somewhere. That would be something positive. You've accomplished squat going back and forth, other than to assuage your egos. So rise up, get off your computers and do something that will make all of us proud, if you believe you can.

Apparently Ron didn't get the memo, he wore the same tired old mask scaring some children.

Please get your facts straight judge left this issue wide open. There will not be a ruling until someone actually has plans to build. That could be next week or 10 years from now so we will have to see what happens down the road so don't celebrate so soon.

It would've happened by now. Not to mention the heights could always be raised with a vote so that could also happen at some future date.
Getting sued for 20 million or whatever, bankrupting the town, is no longer a possibility. Really never was just fear backed with lies to get what a few wanted at the expense of the rest of us.

Choice has screwed up far too often
almost every street in town has toters lining the streets, these toters were not picked up on garbage days, they are full of garbage which
detracts from property values in town.
Something is wrong with the present garbage service
The leftover garbage toters are attracting flies & mosquitos &
creating unsanitary conditions
WM is much superior waste service
Town never had problems with WM
The extra cost was worth the money.

You have to at some point realize that in a democracy it is not absolute rule of majority but rather there is such thing as rule of law that protects minorities. This is something that too many people in our town do not realize yet.
To give you an example, yes maybe majority of people in this town were not harmed by extending the height limit to the new town, however, the minority of people living in the north were harmed by the town's action. Now some of these people made an investment in real estate just like you maybe invested in stocks or a CD. The town did not pass a law saying that your stocks cannot go up above certain level nor did it cap the interest rate that banks in our town can pay you on your investment. So whatever the town did it did, we messed with their investment, but just because some people, such as you, think that it benefits the majority (this claim may be unsubstantiated) there is no reason to celebrate.

I do not get bills from Choice any more. I get bills from WSI and these bills are screwed up. They charge a month ahead and then call you that you are behind in payments. Or at least this is how it looks like to me right now because WSI is unable to provide my payment history proving that I am indeed behind in my payments.

That brings up a couple of interesting points.
The underlying principals of democracy gives us freedoms which are shared by all - in the present and in the future. That is why a vote will never be allowed so that the majority may kick out the minority. Also nothing done for the benefit of the present should be allowed to place a burden on the future. Its the same principle.
I wont get into current affairs, but I think breaking those principles has much to do with the current crap we are in. That holds true for both the local and world levels.
But like any investment, it can go up or down. For our height limits going up would benefit some and not others, in the same part of town.
Plus the market had more to do with price then what the town did, or should I say what the people voted for. Just because a majority voted a certain way doesn't mean all of the minority will not benefit.
If the writer did celebrate, so did I, but maybe for different reasons. I did so because my quality of life was not damaged. More doesn't always mean better.

Choice's service was great and cost was great. The new company is messing up and the towm needs to demand better service.

Read above before you make up your mind.

WM is much superior waste service
Town never had problems with WM
The extra cost was worth the money
or, the alternative is to continue
with second rate waste services which results
#42032 Apr 4, 2013
Run for Commission on the Platform that you will get the best service possible regardless of cost. Be sure and tell the voters that their taxes will go up every year by the maximum allowance. Fees for service have no limit and will raised on a regular basis to pay for the best service money can buy.
If your thinking is what the majority thinks then you will be elected by a landside.

LBS owners afford expensive homes & run million dollar businesses, LBS owners often purchase $40,000+ luxury vehicles, how can you say paying more for excellent trash service
should be approved by majority when the majority are RICH RICH RICH
Unfortunately, there are several loud mouthed residents wishing they could achieve getting trash service for FREE.
Been that way for 25+ years, same loud mouths, same story,
F Y I, after several garbage companies hired by town in the past
'failed' according to some in town, the town appointed several
citizens to do trash studies, and that group determined the best
way to go to avoid problems was to contract with Waste Management.
By the way, taxpayers are paying the expensive cost for fire studies, sewer studies,
and the possibly soon to be trash collection study to avoid the inevitable hiring solution to hire the best services available.
Some probably do not care if the town has garbage toters remaining at curbside all week long until the trash service DECIDES to empty them out. You figure?
#42034 Apr 4, 2013
YES you are correct.
After several trash companies proved to give
unsatisfacy service to thetown , LBS decided to hire the best service available in South Floida which was WasteManagement.

A few owners are rich, but many others are barely making it. A lot of owners are close to foreclosure. Why the few rich ones want all the others to pay for them. If you want a superior exclusive garbage collection for yourself you can hire a private contractor that will collect your trash twice daily if you want. They can even do it in a Rolls Royce truck if you choose so. But stop trying to impose on the others YOUR choices.
#42036 Apr 5, 2013
fact is the servce you pay for
is not doing their job well enough,
cause the garbage
is not being picked up at some addresses as scheduled
try calling the company for any reason, betcha dont get an answer to your inquiry
Bottom Line is continue spending your good money on second rate trash collection or hire pros to do the job smoothly & efficiently without problems

No doubt, the upcoming Election will have discussions on'garbge pickup' or lack of pickup;
Check the records, back in the 90s,
Mayoral candidate Anna Mae French lost an election in town by only (1) one vote because she did not want town to spend extra money for better garbage collection service. In fact, you can check this
out on YouTube/CNN reporting.
