Realized there's a lot of mail, papers, books, etc.. from colleges and high school and the nearest paper recycling place is in Dayton. We need a paper recycling place in the city, it will shows us that we are going green.
Composting has many benefits.
We may need a new high school in the next couple of years because the one that we have is now getting overcrowded. The school was originally built for about 1,500 students, but in the next couple of years we may be seeing up to 2,000+ students! Right now I am still in middle school and I am worried that my future may be affected by the crowded hallways and classrooms. Please at least consider these ideas
It would be helpful if at each bus stop, you post the route for each bus that stops at that location. Combined with information from online applications riders could select the buses that would work for them and they could also find out when the next bus will arrive.
Drinking water: City's National Forest reservoir water is probably some of the most healthy/cleanest in Va.; a key treasure. Concerns: the Oct. 29 City Council work meeting, there were many signs that City should complete a "full water study": 1-rate structure (since~1988?) actually *discourages conservation; 2-staff seemed unsure what City's "Musts & Wants" were to future; 3-most USA systems have or now plan pro-active, practical ways to drive down water average + peak demands plus ways to drive down their high *fixed costs (automation, upgrades, billing every 2 months); but, none were mentioned; 4-City should try hard to *avoid the ~$25 Million cost (in~10 years?) to install a big water pipe thru County to Shenandoah River (S. Fork; McGaheysville) +costly treatment equipment (Shen. water has lots of agr. runoff, bacteria, viruses, etc.;); 5- customers get triple benefits- since each gallon conserved also lowers costly sewer charges, which are rising fast; 6- +etc. benefits- TBD.
