Dissolution chair: move would be ‘disastrous’
To the Editor:
Don’t create monopoly
So I was curious if I was the only one concerned about the privatization of solid waste in St. Lawrence County. I understand the importance of budget cuts, however creating a monopoly for garbage haulers is going to hurt the country by putting many haulers out of business. I think as difficult as it may be, the county needs to focus on cuts to Social Services, for example the child care benefit many people receive to aid in child care expenses should be reviewed.
Seems to me that some of the people on the Potsdam dissolution committee are trying to make people afraid of combining the town and the village. I think we should be more afraid of not doing it! If the village doesn’t change the way it works, no one is going to want to live here and the businesses and colleges will suffer right along with it. This is too small a place for two governments.
