Your View: Trash updates

JOPLIN, Mo. — The one thing I want most often from the Joplin city website is missing as far as I can tell, and that is about the trash pickup during inclement weather.

Am I the only one who thinks this deserves a spot on the home page? It could be displayed instead of,  for example, the rather strange block that tells me “no emergency at this time.”

I don’t understand why it should be difficult to post whether the schedule will be maintained or delayed and to do so within mere minutes of the decision, but it’s not being done.
