Take notice that it will be at 6 p.m. in advance of the regular meeting of Jan. 19, 2010 at 127 Roosevelt Ave.

Here's a quick summary:

Leave it to PMUA to give us a gift of this stature. Just what we need, more money out of pocket to pay for their junkets to AC and beyond!

Garbage rates going up again? For what? This is absurd. They keep jacking up my rates because they know I can't go elsewhere

To 10:32pm - You may want to try contacting Abba or Grand Sanitation services. They may be cheaper and they pick up your garbage in your yard. You do not have to put it on the street.
