        Your reply is so well crafted and thought out, you are obviously well-educated and of much higher class than others. If you look to someone’s comments to determine how your day goes you may want to get a pet instead.

    So, that’s a 23.2% increase, about 14 times the rate of inflation.

    Are they going to give a 23% wage increase to the laborers doing the work?

    I didn’t think so.

    It doesn’t count as a tax but as a fee so they get away with it. I recall when rubbish collection was an urban service like police and fire, not separately levied. Then again, I also recall when trains were pulled by steam engines 🙂

    Call it whatever you like, it’s an increase in the cost of living in El Paso and people aren’t seeing much in return for all the increases in recent years.
