    People haven’t even got a chance to finish clean-up or get a truck yet, so as usual those who can more afford the fees benefit form the short waiving.

  2. Truth is killin’ me... says:

    Why can’t these be waived till October 26th like the Planning Department? Some people haven’t even got round to cleaning up there homes because they have had to work!

    This is too short a break! Most trees and bushes are still down in yards all over the island. Unless you are well off and can afford gardeners and a truck ahead of the rest, you are still waiting to arrange for trees to be cut and moved, let alone trucked anywhere!

    People are still securing roof repairs and getting power back on, trees come way down on the priority list.

    The government is not helping much here! Only the wealthy – yet again!

    I would be a good idea to learn the ,meaning of the word corroboration and corporation.

    You don’t give the working people a break do you.

    What comes round go around, leaves come and go .

    May be let it all rot to the ground, that is what leaves do don’t they !

  5. Why? says:

    Too Soon! We were just hit by a Cat 3 Hurricane 2 weeks ago! Many are still cutting down damaged branches. Still trees against wires. The landscapers have NOT made their full rounds yet and people are still waiting for their large piles of damaged foliage to be picked up. OK, we will just let these big piles sit in place and cause lots of mold and create homes for vermin! Hurricanes can be very expensive events,
    Especially when we as a people are being Taxed to death by Government and the cost of LIFE continues to soar.
