The word “mandatory” upsets people, said Judge-Executive John Wayne Conway.
He doesn’t like it himself.
“I hate that word mandatory,” Conway said. “I can’t stand it, I wish there was a more favorable word than mandatory.”
Mandatory trash pickup, however, could lead to Anderson County being designated as a Certified Clean County, a title that would reap grant funds for the county.
It’s good for the county, Conway said. But he said he’s not sure how to implement it.
