People were heard on trash issue

Contrary to the headline on the Jan. 2 letters (‘‘Citizens of Rockville need to be heard on issue of trash pickups”), the citizens of Rockville were heard from on the issue of trash pickups.

The voters spoke. The mayor and City Council listened. The top vote-getters in the November election were the candidates for mayor and council who promised to reduce refuse collection from twice weekly to once a week. Anyone who didn’t hear that needs to take the cotton out of their ears.
