Another public meeting on the trash collection budget problem in Vincennes lead to more questions than answers - at least that's the take from a number of attenders. Have you ever had a three year old ask for something - over and over again. They will change the content of pitch, adjust the delivery, but the final wish is always the same - give me what I want.
Sometimes I just can't take it. I'm tired of the switches. Tired of the emotions. Just plain tired of the subject. And I give in. "OK have an ice cream sandwich before dinner." That's where I'm at on the trash thing. The so-called transparency of these committee meetings are just a bunch of chatting. Maybe they would work better at a local watering hole, but as public discussion they seem like a waste of time. Just present an ordinance. Tell us exactly what you will vote on and THEN have another meeting - you know the official Public Hearing.
We all know what the result is going to be. Just do it - please so we can move on to curbs, sidewalks, streets, and everything else.
