R.D.O. S. – Thieves and bullies
I would like to know how the RDOS can get away with pushing their services on a small community like Hedley?
We had voted a number of times to keep the RDOS out of Hedley, but they got their foot in the door by forcing their garbage collection services upon us. We were to have a vote on how we wanted to pay for their garbage pickup, to got on our taxes, but that did not happen, and now we have to pay a lump sum at the end of the year.
Now the RDOS wants to raise our rates by 56 per cent.
The only way we found this out was through an RDOS ad placed in the local newspaper with no respect to the people who live in Hedley.
The RDOS sends us their billing every year, to each and every one of us – whatever happened to sending us a notice about any increases in their services and fees?
