People keep voting with the idea of compassion but the ‘idea’ of compassion doesn’t rest in the minds and hearts of those who will take advantage of the good hard working American citizens. They won’t wise up and their children and grandchildren will suffer for it….we are not on a good path when we allow anyone who wants to be here to be here just because they are more disadvantaged or have a sad story. Many American citizens have a sad story and we should be making sure they are taken care of first and foremost and those who enter legally are welcome. If we didn’t give unearned benefits to those who just touched our border illegally five minutes ago, we could take care of our poor, disabled, elderly and veterans. What a concept?

Reader says , “the Village should sell the firewood and make money”

Well as a village tax payer for 40 years the village in the past 20 years used to give away when you compost and woodchips for free and delivery call for free. But dad have stopped. But that’s OK I understand . I was told that they have a buyer for all of the compost and wood chips Which is a good thing. So I think we could do the same with the wood , sell it and make money, it’s a no brainer .

Reader says , “nothing Government does is FREE “

Hate to be a party pooper, but virtually nothing Government does is FREE.
There was certainly a cost for the staff to prepare the firewood.
If the rational was to reduce dumping costs, perhaps that could have been accomplished by selling the wood to a third party.

How much is this really saving the taxpayers. Because when you add in the labor rate & How much the maintenance for equipment is . It’s a little bit. Some think this is more about putting a feather in some ones hat. This is nothing new in thinking.Many other towns cut the tree down where it is , and stacked up and left on curb line for the residence to take. This is all well and good as long as it doesn’t take away from all the other responsibilities the parks. And being short on staff well At times you need to look at the big picture. Looks good on paper doesn’t it.
