To Clean Up SD Budget Dump, Talk Trash

Why does everyone keep referring to it as "free" trash pickup? It's not free, the city pays for it. The citizens pay for the city (yup, it's true, the city makes ZERO income on their own...shocking, I know) and by the simple math rule that if A=B and B=C then A must equal C... the citizens pay for their trash pickup. City leaders would get a lot more credibility from me if they'd just call it what it is.. charging more taxes.

As an end result, I would vote for more taxes in the form of an additional charge for trash pickup. But only if the city made responsible cuts first and was accountable for how the additional income was used. I'm sad to say that's just more than I feel we can trust city leaders with.
