Trash tags... (206.2)

I know you were fascinated by my commentary on garbage pickup a few months ago, and today I've got a follow-up for you.

Apparently, the City of Ithaca got so many complaints with an announcement on Monday that all old trash tags had to be used by January 31st, and the new, higher-priced ones would have to be used thereafter, that they've backpedaled and will accept the old tags through February 15th.

There've been complaints that even though the City will gladly refund unused old trash tags, or credit them toward the purchase of new tags at the higher price, that's too much for some area residents. If you have the choice of bringing your old tags to City Hall in person, or mailing them in for a refund, it seems as though the City is doing its job. If they get to keep the value of unused tags, it's not for lack of trying to give back that value.
