Dear Rumpke folks;

We understand your pain in trying to get any money you can from our Mayor here in East Cleveland. Bravo, half payment beats nothing and actually you will have a better run once the weather breaks etc.

People are very concerned that no one knows whether your check will actually go through or bounce and whether this will cut some of the other vital services in our town. Either way from a Rumpke point and citizens of East Cleveland anything we can do to keep you getting some money is a big plus.

Like my grandmother used to tell me: “Some money Beats NO money”

On our intervention New Channel Five contacted you and the auditors office to get your side of the story. They changed their website accordingly with your press release etc.

In June when we once again revisit this issue understand that we the people of East Cleveland want to help you anyway possible.

We truly appreciate that you are happy now and only pray that this relationship continues once the weather gets hot and trash left outside could be a major problem for our town. In either way we are keeping watch on this behind payment and something will come around soon for all of us.

OH by the way I am on Northfield Ave and your crew has been very nice and neat with pick up on the few house on this street including my own and they provide a much better service than the previous company that the city parted company with.

Please no need for a return email (I can’t take any more of those PR letters etc.) SMILE and Have a Wonderful Day
