How Ginny has Helped Arizona
Ginny Dickey fought to bring single-hauler trash service to the constituents of Fountain Hills. For the first time the town will have Town-wide curbside recycling, reduced truck traffic, noise, fuel consumption and pollution, plus safer and more aesthetically-pleasing roads with much less damage, saving tax-payers’ money. “This is a contract with a private hauler who is offering a recycling incentive program for residents, and the bill for a vast majority of our households has been significantly reduced, with strict limits on future rate increases,” says Councilwoman Dickey. She also initiated and supported the creation of environmental policies that were incorporated into the Council’s goals and visions for ongoing implementation.
