In response to Mayor Mike Holmes’ column of July 13, I can see where the mayor says the blue bag program may save a few dollars for some residents by using a smaller waste can, but I fail to see how the blue bags don’t cost the city anything. Are they given “free” to the city? What a deal. To get anything at no cost is really amazing in this day and age. Kevin Brady, Auburn
