NORTH PROVIDENCE – Municipal leaders can get just about everything right, says Mayor Charles Lombardi, but if they’re not adequately picking up people’s trash or paving their roads, they’re not doing their job.

The town this week is opening bids on both trash pickup and road paving, amid ongoing issues with sanitation provider MTG Disposal and paving contractor T. Miozzi.

It would be nice if the driver of the MTG trucks would put the bins back on the ground before driving off and dragging the bins 15 or 20 feet down the road every darn week.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
