Reader Mail: Useless street cleaning
This entry could have easily been considered a “readerpix,” however, seeing that it’s a gripe against some kind of city service – here’s a fresh and toasty reader mail for you instead!
Save money – forget the sweepers!
“This is ridiculous… For all of the tens of thousands of dollars the city collects at $35 a pop for street cleaning parking tickets, you’d think we could at least get clean streets!!!
Shown below is the clear snail trail left minutes before by the sweeper going down 5th street, and look at all of the garbage and crap by the curb. Let’s just charge the parking tickets and let the street sweeper operator stay home and collect their paycheck.
The city would save fuel and maintenance costs on the sweepers!!!”
