Moline heading into the 21st century
Though long overdue, the City of Moline is actually poised to decide whether to offer residents curb-side recycling. As part of a study involving Rock Island, Milan, and East Moline, it appears that the service is feasible and may very well be in the offing.
Why it's taken this long is a puzzle, but this seems to be a signal that the dark-ages of the Leach era are finally over, and it's a welcome sign.
Finally, things really seem to be happening for the town with money being devoted to long neglected areas instead of handed out to every developer with a hand out.
There have been many positive signs and indications of a new attitude and new direction since Leach left office. Let's hope it continues.
