Hey, City of Portland, thanks for all the services you provide at taxpayer expense. Although I may gripe about the need for certain programs and whether it is a function of local government to provide such programs, most are actually pretty beneficial to most of your fine citizens.
However, when you provide a service like street sweeping to keep our neighborhoods clean, maybe you should check the local garbage / recycling / composting schedule. Because it doesn't make any fucking sense to send out street sweepers on fucking garbage day when each house on each side of the fucking street has three fucking containers on the street that your drivers are forced to avoid, negating the whole fucking purpose of street sweeping.
