Dif­fi­cult, hot work

The Niagara Falls Review - - Local -

I’m find­ing the con­stant stream of rev­e­la­tions about our regional gov­ern­ment by turns un­be­liev­able, com­i­cal, ridicu­lous and out­ra­geous.

Just when you think things have hit rock bot­tom, an­other al­le­ga­tion of sneak­i­ness, wil­ful ig­no­rance or ar­ro­gant in­com­pe­tence comes to us from the ex­cel­lent re­port­ing of The Stan­dard team.

But I di­gress. I’m re­ally writ­ing to ex­press my thanks and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the hard work of the Emterra em­ploy­ees who work 363 days a year through heat warn­ings, cold warn­ings, snow­storms, rain, in­evitable equip­ment break­downs and sick day cov­er­ages to take away our trash.

I’m guess­ing many of those who com­plain about this ser­vice haven’t had op­por­tu­nity to work a hard, phys­i­cal, out­door job in their lives. Thank good­ness it is a pri­vate com­pany. Imag­ine Messrs. Alan Caslin and Car­men D’An­gelo run­ning it. Cur­tis Wi­ley
