After reading the article last week (Jan. 25 "Macedonia Council considering fee for leaf pick") about the consideration of a $3 monthly fee for leaf pick-up I have a couple of questions.

1. Is this fee going to be collected only during the months when the city actually picks up leaves and branches?

2. Is there going to be an option to opt out? There residents in the city who use the leaves for compost and don't put them on their tree lawns. I would find if much cheaper to bag my own leafs rather than pay $36 a year to have them collected by the city. I am beginning to believe that this administration has never seen a tax or a fee that they did not like.
