Letter: ‘Opt-out provision’

To the editor:
I’m writing to respond to the letter writer last week who did not want to pay the city for organized trash hauling, because she doesn’t have a lot of trash.  I’m happy to let her know that many cities—Maplewood is one—include an opt-out provision in their contracts.  Residents who choose this option simply sign a form stating where they are taking their trash, and—provided it’s a legitimate way to properly dispose of trash—they don’t have to participate.

Letter: ‘Unnecessary expense’

To the editor:
In response to a letter entitled “Don’t see a downside” published in the March 31 edition of the Review, I see a downside to a city contract with the garbage haulers like we have for recycling. Since September I have paid $8.33 to get rid of my garbage by twice dropping off a sack at Advanced Disposal.

Letter: ‘Don’t see a downside’

To the editor:
After reading how the many garbage trucks are tearing up our streets, it seems to me that the City of Roseville should consider what many other cities do: write an RFP for a garbage hauling contract, ask for bids from the various businesses, and select one.

Letter: ‘I just wish they understood it’

To the editor:
Lisa McCormick charitably states at the end of an article entitled “Roseville orders design services for Twin Lakes Parkway extension” in the Roseville Review dated March 17, 2015, concerning the Roseville City Council’s decision making process, “there’s a lot of cynicism in the neighborhood now”.

Letter: ‘Magnificent virtues’

To the editor:
I’m generally a free-enterprise kind of person, certainly not a “socialist” in most matters.

Regarding a recent letter about Twin Lakes Parkway: There would be no Twin lakes Plan if we had not saved Langton Lake and worked to establish Langton Lake Park over 40 years ago.

Letter: ‘Despite the challenges’

To the editor:
A recent letter [“Merely grandstanding,” March 10] criticized Senator John Marty’s column [“Time to end worker poverty,” Feb. 24], saying that Marty’s work on his worker dignity bill was “grandstanding” because Senator Marty acknowledged that the legislation was unlikely to pass in our current political climate.
