Thanks for nothing


I would like to know why senior citizens in Auburn have to pay to get rid of an old air conditioner or refrigerator? The officials at Auburn Public Works and the city dump say we have to take the items to an Auburn business and pay $35 to have the refrigerant taken out and disposed of.

What is that about?

How does an older person with no vehicle and a very small budget take care of that? I certainly do not have the strength to even move them.

Where is the help now that we need it?

I heard that the new city manager is trying to save money, but at what expense? Ours?

Thank you. Now I know how the city feels about older persons.

Thank you … for nothing.
