Please put in Councilors' packages.
Dear Ms. Tomlinson:
I want to congratulate you and the city of Columbus for the construction and opening of the new recycling center. My family and I visited this facility to find it impressive in its functional design, reflecting a well-planned and important mission. There is no question that to recycle what we dispose of so readily is a matter of urgency in world that has its limitations.
It is very comforting to know that our city is acting responsibly as well as efficiently, attentive to both sensitive needs and practical concerns.
I like to thank you personally and all those involved in the planning and execution of this valuable service to our community. This is an example of the merit of having a well-focused vision and an example of good government.
On the practical side, to reduce refuse collection to once a week makes good financial sense and should be quite manageable for us citizens. A twice weekly pick-up schedule is neither necessary nor all that economic.
Let me also add that our city government should make a greater effort to educate our citizenry regarding the importance of recycling. The Ledger-Enquirer should do a series on this topic and showcase our cutting-edge recycling center.
Thank you. Wishing you well,
Mario R. Mion
