Letter to the Editor

Johnston Mayor, Town Council thanks citizens for patience

web posted January 21, 2010
Dear Editor,
The Mayor and Town Council would like to thank the citizens for your patience during the limbs/leaves season. This year has been a challenging year with lots of restraints, but I believe we are beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel. By that, I mean in previous years we were able to move at least 10 loads of leaves per week and starting in 2008 it was 3 loads per week. 

Even with the 3 loads per week with inclement weather, it pushed us backwards instead of moving forward. On an average we have been unable to transport 28 loads per month due to machine break down, rainy weather, the distant we have to travel and muddy landfill. 

When the leaves are wet and heavy it will cause the machine to become clogged. We know we are asking a lot of you, and we apologize for that. 

During these difficult times, we are asking that you make smaller and lower piles rather than the larger ones, because it takes longer for the leaves piled high to dry out and move swiftly through the vacuum. 

Also, the convenience center is making every effort to alleviate this problem for the Town of Johnston by allowing us to bring manageable loads of debris for those who have a pickup truck and willing to transport to bring back the beauty of your property.  

Current changes in our circumstances will allow us to move more debris than before.  The Public Works Department has assured me that they will make every effort to pick the debris up providing the weather holds true for us. Again, thank you for your patience and assistance in these challenging times.
