I get it. I get why the experts at Moose Jaw City Hall believe we need to make the move to front curb garbage service. They say it'll save us money with less wear and tear on our back alleys and our equipment.
What I don't get is city council's decision to delay it this summer.
Councilor Don Mitchell's motion to push the program back was passed 4-3. He wants more public input and communication.
It's not a big deal, I suppose, but did we not elect councilors to make those decisions?
Do we not hire skilled professionals to make those recommendations? Yes, yes we do.
Councilor Crystal Froese voted against Mitchell's motion. She says she has trust in our city administration that they have a good plan - a plan that has already been discussed and we should get on with it.
Hear, hear, councilor Froese! Hear, hear.
