"So let it be written, so let it be done"

It may have been in the King and I as well but that is may favorite line from The Ten Commandments - used by both Yul Brynner and Charlton Heston. What a classic and still my favorite movie. I have used in often both at home at work for a little humor.

I do the same with the Star Trek Second Generation corollary to that:

"Make it so." - Capt Picard.

If it's losing money, then close it.

I'm paying $85 each quarter for my trash pickup and I doubt closin it down and getting curbside will cost me much more than that to get curbside.

How much money do we save by shutting it down? Wouldn't this be a pretty equal swap? I believe it costs the town $1.5 million to operate the TS. I'm sure we could get a curbside company for that amount.

The proposed curbside plan would have cost the town roughly the same amount we now pay for the transfer station so the tax rate would be almost zero different.

What people would see however is savings from other things, like not having to spend gas to drive across town or people like yourself would see the savings in being able to cut that $85 bill from your expense.

Sorry, misspoke. What was proposed was only a 1 year curbside plan since Norm Carr choose not to give the public the full cheaper price which was quoted to the SWAC report. The committee report was what listed the price of the 10 year plan. I believe that came in at around 1.8 million per year.
