Reader says , “nothing Government does is FREE “

Hate to be a party pooper, but virtually nothing Government does is FREE.
There was certainly a cost for the staff to prepare the firewood.
If the rational was to reduce dumping costs, perhaps that could have been accomplished by selling the wood to a third party.

This is nothing new in thinking.Many other towns cut the tree down where it is , and stacked up and left on curb line for the residence to take.

Looks good on paper doesn’t it.
