    Why is the city comparing Lodi rates to San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland?

    That has to be the most ridiculous reason ever for upping rates. If someone suggested raising salaries in Lodi to meet those in the Bay Area the city council would be up in arms - except if it benefited THEIR stipends and benefits.

    They have to find some way to pay for their city-provided health and retirement benefits, don't they?

    Speaking of voting the bums out...we need to start at home.

    What I'd like to know is what the Lodi City Council's cut of these waste fees are. Maybe they're looking out for themselves rather than us...When you make a service fee "mandatory" whether you use it or not, you're dipping into our disposable income, which might not be that much after the mortgage, auto, taxes, insurance, and...trash fees. $200/year for a 20 gal bin and $300/year for a 35 gal bin are outrageous charges when you could probably spend $50-60/year taking your trash to the dump. Let's see some fiscal transparency Lodi City Council.

    Of course the rates are going up. Remember the $1,000,000 "donated" to the Grape Bowl?
