I would like to know why the city of Galveston waited for the last minute to start picking up the blue 55-gallon garbage cans on the beach?

They knew days in advance about the storm and the high tide flooding, yet they wait till the storm is here and the cans have already started turning over and starting to float.

The mayor and city council every year preach that you have to be prepared. Well, they were not. They should be fined for letting the trash and the garbage cans float in the Gulf.

We need to make a change in November. We need more responsible people that know what is going on and taking better care of our island.

The Galveston Park Board, not the city of Galveston, is responsible for the trash cans on the beach. The board is all chosen by city council, not elected.

what mayor, didn't he quit ?

Ted Gillis

Ha ha Blanca, very funny. His term was over. He chose to stay on longer to help keep so continuity. He didn’t quit!
