DPW gets a Thumbs UP

A dramatic improvement with the trash management this weekend in the downtown area.  Notice I said management!  Nobody ever said the DPW workers were not doing their job the week before.......they were just being mismanaged by the powers that be......

I did make an observation over this past weekend.  The DPW had the removal of trash under control.  But I spotted one of the VB members pull up with his personal truck around 9:30 am on Sunday.  He proceeded to remove the trash in front of the upper James St docks and place it in his truck.  [I have a picture if anyone wants to see it].  It was not 15 minutes later that a DPW worker showed up to do this same task.  The DPW belongs to a UNION aka Collective Bargaining Unit.  You guys do not need the VB doing any of your work for you!  The next thing you know.....maybe one of you won't be needed anymore......Keep yourselves together on this fellas!  Remember when the VB wanted to have the trash removed by an independent hauler?  Remember what your Union guy said at a VB meeting.  I know you do.....because some of you were there!

Keep up the good work!
