"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
Like a Herd of Turtles

I was worried about having to pay a fee for something I don't use, but that worry may have been premature. My wife and I have never used our big old Vincennes City Trash Tote. It sits in the back yard never used. When the City began talking about dropping the sticker system for a fee system, I worried about paying a fee for something I never use. Shouldn't have worried.
It's been months and no decision. It's been months and my worries haven't come true. I may not even make it to the decision stage and the chances I will make it to the actual implementation of a fee based trash collection system are becoming slimmer each day.
Wasted worry. But I am making the best of it. My never used City Tote will make a great cooler for that big block party my neighbor Tom claims he is going to spearhead. It's clean and will hold a lot of beverages and ice.
