If one bought 20 bags and stickers, which for leave removeali is not a large amt., you would be well over 60 bucks. You asked and before you make more uninformed comments, get some infomation on your own.

What does a yard waste bag cost in LaSalle?

If it isn't $60, someone made a wrong choice.

Keeping a civil discourse and feeling in this city is a goal that all but a few would want to hold.

Suggesting that the city officials Lead By Example is a tactic that many communities have used to repair conflict and create constructive co-operative successful environments.

One can either keep the argument going, displaying destructive speech and activities, or contribute to harmony and happiness for all.
The city leaders can use their power for either.
The smart ones use it for peace and ease of life for their community.

All the great cities are the results of peace, co-operation and harmony.

As for volunteering--my neighborhood is already working together to assist each other.
And personally, I have devoted almost 100% of my time to volunteer over the last ten years in many ways. I practice what I preach, walk my talk, and live my values.

what dream world do you live in. a man was fined some sixty bucks not because he did not clean up his yard but because he did not pay to have the waste removed.
i ask you sir, mam, what ever, how will volunteers help? do they pay for the removel, do they remove it, and why is it that all of you sugesstions always exclude you?
you seem to be free with everyones time and service. how about you?

One suggestion: form volunteer groups to assist homeowners with clean-up activities. This could be started by the aldermen and mayor, and would be a much more harmonious and peaceful solution for the community.
We all have a common goal of living in a beautiful city--are any of the properties owned by absentee landlords?
