Make city dumpster available on weekends

Dear editor,

Just a thought.

If we are concerned about how our city looks, then perhaps the city should make its dumpster available during a time other than Monday-Friday.

Most people work during this time and a good number of people work out of town now, which makes it very difficult, if not impossible, to be able to use it.

I know that the handful of times I have had to use it, I have taken a day off of work just for that reason alone.

By the way, in trying to imagine myself as a newcomer to this area and looking for a place to settle down: I would be more put off by the possibility of getting a citation for not bringing my trash cans up, than I would be by coming through town and seeing trash cans out.

Surely, we have more important things to be concerned about, other than trash cans.

Let’s keep things in perspective, please.
