City needs to explain trash talk
Superior Wisconsin 1410 Tower Ave. 54880

The recent talk about instituting a garbage fee for Superior residents has city officials in the embarrassing situation of talking out of both sides of their mouth.

For years, when questioned about the extraordinary cost of our property taxes, officials from the Mayor’s Office to the Public Works Department scoffed at us, saying that the tax rate is high because it includes the cost of our garbage service.

Now those same officials are saying that Superior is “unique” in that we aren’t charged for our garbage.

So which is it? Either way, we’re being lied to.

Steve Tanko,

Superior
