Government doing what it does.......Monroe, Brodhead & Green County..

 Monroe, Brodhead and Green County residents.

These numbers won't mean a thing to anyone that is outside of the Monroe or Green County area, but I felt that they should be shared.  The city and county have been throwing around the idea of shutting down the Green County Landfill for a little over 2 years now and if they do that, you can clearly see how much you'll be paying to dispose of things that you no longer want.  The numbers are so clearly in favor of keeping the landfill open that I can't believe there's even any debate about this.  The county has made it pretty clear they would like to see the landfill continue to be open, and I've been told by some county board members that the city won't accept any of the offers that are put before them to make this happen.   I think this is simply another power struggle that will put the tax payers in a bad situation if they can't find some common ground.  
Maybe it's time you ask your alder-person why this situation can't be resolved.  Why would I spend $25 to get rid of a tire when I could just as easily spend $6.75 to the landfill to do the same thing?  And this is just one example of the giant gap in pricing...........
