Re: “Who’s responsible for informing residents? Editorial Jan. 16

Dear Editor,

I feel that bylaws are passed by council without properly advising the people of Airdrie.

There is a very simple solution. Enclose a form letter with our utility bill, which asks “Do you want organic bins?

“Please circle yes or no and drop it off at City Hall’s reception area as soon as possible.”

Many people are very tired when they get home from work and don’t have the energy or time to wade through websites to see what Airdrie plans to do in their city.

The pilot program was done in the “high-end” areas of Waterstone and Canals.

It might be $5.26 a month or $63.12 a year but that could be a week’s food order for some of Airdrie’s residents. Over a year that would be one week without food for some.

Please hold off for now and consider the above.

Kathleen Barnett,
