Bear problem or government problem?

Posted: September 8, 2011 - 6:06pm

In a recent Clarion article, the (Kenai) city manager was quoted as saying, “one of the biggest problems in the area are overflowing dumpsters at multi-family dwellings.”

As an owner of a multi-family dwelling in VIP, my dumpster doesn’t overflow and it has regular trash pick-up. My tenants, who have small children, have never seen a bear in the area.

I don’t doubt that there has been some bear problems in the area, but don’t punish all of us for the sins of a few. Rather, educate the public, write citations for the offenders, but don’t use big government to solve an isolated problem.
