Difficult, hot work
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
