yes---bigger recycling bins. We usually have recycle than regular tash and our bins are always over-flowing. I even bought a larger one myself at Lowes. A lid to closeit--would be a good idea too, Randy.

Also--I notice something funny in the list---lower taxes, but a bunch of things that cost money. Nothing is free.

K-Stu, you're right about nothing being free! I would like to add a HomeGoods store to the list of businesses I would like to see in town. Would also like to reiterate that I would like to see condo development w/i walking distance of shopping.

Please please please can we get garbage and recycling toters instead of having piles of garbage bags at the end of our driveways? Skinks and racoons have a field day ripping through the bags and those garbage bag piles make the neighboorhoods look trashy (pun intended) when everybody's garbage is all piled up everywhere!
