If the civic body is not able to manage its expenses then they should come out for increasing the taxes and then manage the show. There is no point in asking the residents to pay for garbage collection separately. If you do the things like that then in future there will be different different payment for different different services. That is highly undesirable and create a mess of the situation. When civic body is collecting good amount of tax than what is the problem in using that for various services. It is very strange and unbelievable that instead of consolidating the things they are unnecessary going for confusions and inconveniences for the people. The irony is that today they will ask the residents to pay for garbage and tomorrow they will increase the tax also. Residents should not agree for this proposition and strongly oppose it citing the above reasoning or any other logical one.
