Westminster City or Not...

Can someone tell me how it's fair that I pay Westminster City taxes, pay for Westminster City water, yet I'm not included in the Westminster City trash pick-up??

I don't understand. 'that's trash pick-up is district'? Am I missing somethng?

They say I don't fall within the district for trash pickup.

I don't get it, but it sure doesn't seem right. I live just on the outskirts, off of Bond, not in West. City. I don't pay West. City taxes, but my neighborhood is hooked up to West. City water/sewer. I have to pay for that and it's not cheap. We don't have trash pickup either, but again, we don't pay West. City taxes. I pay for my own trash pickup from a private hauler. I don't know where you live, but I'd definitely be checking those boundary lines, especially since you are paying West. City taxes. If I found that I lived within those boundaries (which I'd bet you DO), I'd go to war. Best of luck to you!

Thanks, Pam. I appreciate your feedback. At least now I know I'm not crazy for questioning it :)

You are quite welcome, Bev. When I feel there is a wrong being committed, I like to try to help folks. I would definitely be doing my research into the boundary lines. That information is public knowledge and they have to give it to you. Kill them with politeness, not anger. You'll get further that way! And no, you are NOT crazy, my friend.
