I would like to encourage my fellow Lopezians to vote YES for the Lopez Solid Waste Levy, Lopez Proposition No. 1. This levy will raise $100,000 to fund one-third of the Lopez Solid Waste Disposal District Expenses for 2013 (less than 10 cents per $1000 of assessed value). The remainder of the funding will come from solid waste fees which will come down to $8/can from the current $9.50 AND recycling will be free!
For many of us, this will actually be less than what we currently pay for garbage disposal and recycling but more importantly a YES vote supports our Lopez values. It keeps “the Dump” under local control. We can expect great things with Neil Hanson at the helm and the tremendous support of the Lopez community. Let’s keep our award winning facility and take it to the next level of achievement.
