Okay this is another new one for me.It Is All Corrupt "What About This Junk Picking Problem We Have In Tamaqua" Some People are Getting Nailed For It, Some Are Not" In Tamaqua We Have Atleast 10 People Junk Pickers "Recycling" And They Are Getting Violations In The Mail To Stop Now Or Get Big Fines, What About True Value In Tamaqua, As Far As I Know They Have Not Got Any Violations For Their Junk Trailer Filled With Junk Metal. The Trudish Family Doesnt Get told To Clean Up Their Property, What About Scruffy George With All Of His Junk, I Like The Junk Men They Are Helping Us, Personaly I Know That They Make Less Than Min. Wage And Now They Are Told To Pay 250.00 For A Hearing To See If They Can Continue If They Do Not Win They Have To Stop And They Dont Get That 250.00 Back. But If They Do Win They Have To Get A Licence And Pay Taxes, There Is Enough Taxes In This Town Already. The Bourough Just Wants Their Cut In This. The Junk Pickers Work Hard For Their Money Some Just To Buy Their Children The Stuff They Need And To Put Food On The Table For The Family, The Borough See's Thease People Driving Around All Day And They Must Think Lets Tax Thease People Because There Is Big Money In This We Need A Cut. They Are Just Trying To Tax More People So They Can Get A Pay Hike To Sit Or Drive Around Or Supervise Nothing All Day Untill They Get Off Duty At THREE PM Then When You Call Them Where Are They. CORRUPT
So we have people picking up junk out off of the street on garbage nights? Am I right?
And they are being fined?
We also have people collecting junk to recycle and make a few bucks. Right?
And they are also threatened with fines and the Borough is telling them they need a licence?
If this is correct, it's more nonsense.
If M&S is collecting junk, I have no problem with it. If Joe Schmo is collecting some, I don't care about him either.
Just make a REASONABLE (as opposed to "unreasonable) effort to contain it.
Again, this is little Tamaqua, which was started by very untidy, imperfect coal miners. Nothing was perfect and nothing ever will be. Local government INTERESTS are smothering people, and I want it to cease.
As citizens, we must stop fighting amongst ourselves and focus on our very OUT OF CONTROL borough.
Let the junk people be!
