Town Changes Leaf Pick-Up Program Again

Amazing that people are bitching about this service being cut. Hello, they are picking up the leaves that fell out of YOUR trees in YOUR yard. In my book that would make them YOUR responsibility. If you cut down these trees it would be YOUR responsibility to take care of the waste. When you cut YOUR grass it's YOUR job to deal with the clippings. Where the idea that we are entitled to have the town pick up the leaves that fall in our own back yards is beyond me. Having piles of leaves all over the side of the road not only looks horrible but it also is a hazard.

Cut the program Mr. Gregor and take some of the money and fix the pot holes around the town and take the rest and put it towards lowering out taxes." Apr 13, 11 7:11 PM

Everyone wants their leaves picked up, yet nobody has yet to justify why the town should pick up the leaves that fall in your back yard? " Apr 16, 11 4:44 PM

So lets say I own a few acres of wooded undeveloped land in SH Town and lets say I want to rake all of the leaves up and pile them at roadside for the town to pick up, should I be allowed to do this, I mean i DO pay "rediculous" taxes on my land?

FYI- I pay about $9200 a year for .28 acres with a 4br/2.5 bath house in HB. ANYTHING to cut my taxes would be appreciated, but then again I don't feel as "entitled" as the rest of you. I imagine you are the ones who get pulled over by the police for speeding and pull the "I pay your salary" card while trying to talk your way out of said speeding ticket. LOL You all are sad and laughable." Apr 22, 11 6:04 PM

Nope GB, I wish, over $7K goes towards the schools here. I could move in the village proper in SH and pay less...LOL" Apr 23, 11 5:13 PM

Deluded are the people that demand such non-essential services and collectively these services add up. Sure I can "demand" them, but in reality I'd rather just not pay for them nor pay for your leaves and everyone else's to be picked up.

This year I put no leaves out, the very few I had went into the mulch/compost pile I made.

Leaf pick up or better roads and proper plowing, you decide, only one has the potential to kill you." Apr 24, 11 7:31 AM

You've got me thinking, maybe the town could just tack on a bill for property owners who need the pick up and the treeless ones don't pay for the beautification of their neighbors yards.

When my once dirt road was paved, it was added to my tax bill for a certain number of years, when streelights were installed my tax bill went up.

I wonder just how much people would be willing to pay on an individual basis for their "entitlement"?" Apr 24, 11 7:35 AM

Ok I am embarrassed and put out my sincerest apologies to Toma Noku, my original post should have been directed at k2040. If I see you on the street Toma, I will buy you a beer and give you a big hug. K2040 get a clue. Once again Toma Noku, I am sorry for initially calling you out for K2040's uninformed comment.
