Another reason could be that the present con- :: tract holder, Mr. Vos, has utterly failed in his efforts over the last I0 years to do an adequate job. : To my knowledge, in all those years, not one complaint has been brought to the city council regarding his service. I feel, as do many citizens of this community to whom I've spoken, that Mr. Vos has given outstanding ser- vice to his customers. Not only are his rates ; reasonable and fair, but his performance is of the highest quality. Honesty and pride in one's work still mean a great deal to most of us. Further, may I reminfl the citizens of Mon- roe that WE are the government and should you have strong feelings in this matter, pro or con, I urge you to make them Imown at ' once to your elected officials on the council.
