Letter: Sometimes change is necessary

Dear Editor,

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).
