The main reason that I signed the petition to hold a referendum on this trash plan ordinance (ord 18-40) was because it prevented neighbors from sharing trash services. There are several people on my block who use to share services and they would have been prevented from continuing that practice if not for this petition (and the other trash plan petition on ordinance-18-39). I was very happy last October when you decided to just repeal it and save us all the trouble and expense of a ballot vote. I still do not understand why you did not do the same for the petition on 18-39. But thanks for doing the right thing on this one. +3
