City refuse workers doing a great job

This is in response to Cheryl Calsetta’s comment to the Waterbury Board of Aldermen on April 12 saying refuse workers are paid for eight hours’ work even if they work less.

I understand her anger and frustration about the 2.8-mill property-tax increase. But let’s not pick on the refuse workers, who do a great job in snow, rain and humid weather, not counting the smell and dogs.

I believe Ms. Calsetta would agree they do a great job. There are other ways to get your point across.
