Your editorial re the Trash "debacle” Is right on target.
And what most Newton County residents would like to know is!
If they pay the $50 up charge (RANSOM ) to continue dumping trash at the "Convenience" centers , will there be improved service , or will it be the same "Shoddy" service as present, ( with repeated trips required , due to "ALL BINS FULL " and nowhere to dump?
Is/are there any plans "going forward," in the event the Convenience Centers CLOSE in February 2017 as previously announced!
The Newton County trash system is a "Travesty” of poor management, poor planning and underfunding. Is anyone in charge or accountable?
Someone needs to figure out, and plan a short and long term strategy to allay the mistrust within the community.
Instead of "GOUGING " the Newton County residents for this inefficient management, Why not put some SPLOST money to "GOOD USE ".with needed improvements to our very necessary trash system .
Sometimes "change" is necessary, (But it needs to be positive and efficient to be effective).
