Street sweepers

Dear Editor:This past Memorial Day, the trash pick-up service on my street was delayed by one day. Thus, trash pick-up was moved from Tuesday to Wednesday. The ticket machine - AKA street sweeper - was not delayed, therefore, the street sweeper could not function with all the trash bins on the street. I guess with the city of Downey, effective street sweeping is not a priority but the revenue in fines would appear to be of main importance. My question is, if trash pick-up is delayed because of a public holiday, why can't the ticket machine do the same thing? Devin Clarke Downey
