    It’s good that folks are thinking about solutions & economies for our waste management. But… I found myself mostly focusing on cost to the tax payers, & whether these proposals might result in more trash attracting more vermin & more visual pollution. On costs — we urban services residents have “eaten” past changes in the reduction of frequency of services, thinking we were being good sports in a restricted economy. Now I feel any other reductions MUST be accompanied by a corresponding DECREASE in the taxes which we pay for these services. Their solutions must have their own built-in cost savings – or revenue generators – that will also result in an actual REAL cost savings for tax-payers.

    Advice to anyone who see’s any wrong doing while working Metro Government. sit back and don’t say a word about it. just collect your paycheck. Fischer and his crew aren’t going to listen to you. they don’t care. they will pull any stunt they can. to try to ruin your life.

    The best thing you can do. is contact Jake. then send him any evidence and facts you have. on whom ever it is. after that contact a lawyer and let him know what you have done. then keep your mouth shut and let them try to figure out who spilled the beans.

    Don’t go to HR. don’t tell your fellow co-workers. and for god sake don’t tell your union.
