Workers deserve a raise

To the Times of Ti:

It’s about time the town of Ticonderoga is raising the trash disposal fees. Hopefully included in this increase, is a well-deserved salary increase for the wonderful and helpful workers at the landfill.

Being a senior citizen and handicapped person, I would never be able to pull up and dispose of my trash without the wonderful assistance I receive from the employees at the landfill. They are a credit to the town and are absolutely precious. I would never be able to lead an independent life here in the North Country without these type of services provided by such caring individuals.

They are worth far more than what I am sure they are being compensated for and I surely hope that they receive an increase also so they can make a decent living wage. If this is the first increase in 20 years for the landfill, I surely hope it hasn’t been the same for their salaries.

I’m sure everyone who uses the landfill would agree with me, that the employees there show a real interest in helping the citizens (senior or otherwise) and make it a pleasure to go there.

I could never thank them enough and are one of the biggest assets that the town of Ticonderoga has. I, for one, do not mind a price increase for the service that I receive.
