Letter to the Editor: Thanks for Tuckee’s new trash ordinance

Re: “Truckee bearing down…” (Sierra Sun 12/11/12) – congratulations and thanks to the Truckee Town Council for passing an animal-resistant garbage container ordinance promptly and with no fuss or bother after previous councils had failed to do so.

And thanks to Ann Bryant for inspiring this and other ordinances in the region, and for her tireless work to protect people from bears, and more importantly bears from people. In our neighborhood most residents already have bear boxes. Hopefully the rest will get the message.
