Darren Doyle, Founder, Director:
There are a number of reasons that the Edmonson Voice is the leading source for local news and information in our county; one of those reasons is that we concentrate heavily on just local information, and we do our best to keep our opinions out of our platform.
With that being said, my office receives multiple calls and messages on a regular basis from local residents that complain about two major issues: internet service and the trash pickup service we are forced to use, provided by Waste Connections (also still known to some as Scott Waste).
This past Monday at an Edmonson County Fiscal Court meeting, Judge Executive Wil Cannon summarized the many complaints his office had received over the last few months that were directed at Waste Connections. Also, a few residents in attendance brought up additional issues. Mr. Pete Reckard, a rep for Waste Connections, gave several excuses and a few apologies as responses to those issues.
As a response to those many complaints that we also receive, and from my own experience as a Waste Connections "customer" and tax payer, I'd like to write this open letter to Waste Connections, the same as anyone else might submit a letter to the editor. It seems like I never get to share my opinion publicly, so here it is, in open letter form.
Dear Waste Connections,

Sounds to me like you need to run for office. I haven't heard any of our local politicians or candidates make this much sense in anything they've ever said.

We’ll said Darren. As for me, I deduct the payment for the missed service. When I was a city commissioner in Smiths Grove, Warren County made it mandatory for recycling. The catch was that there had to be so many houses in an area before they would pick up. Smiths Grove is a populated area but the outskirts wasn’t so those citizens weren’t required to participate (mind you it was mandatory COUNTY WIDE). I refused to pay for the service and deducted it from my every month for years. I was threatened with having my water and electric cut off, but they never did. EVERYONE in EDMONSON COUNTY should deduct the payment each time they miss!!! And as for them being the only one who would bid on the service, I’m sure they were. The Judge Executives office needs to solicit in writing other companies and entice them. We’ve had to do it in the Grove before and it worked!

The word "FIREWORK" is a compound word, which means that those two words can be used independently.

Time to repost this string of messages. It’s Friday afternoon 5:30pm. Garbage still not picked up. Should have been yesterday. Isn’t the waste contract up for bid?
