Save a tree, use fewer envelopes
Why does the City of Surrey mail out separate dog licence renewal letters to households with two or more dogs, instead of putting the renewal letters in a single envelope, saving the cost of one or more stamps?
A stamp cost today is 61 cents, and there are thousands and thousands of people with two or more dogs in the city.
I feel like this is a complete waste of taxpayers’ money, is bad for the environment (envelopes), and the process should be corrected. I also don’t understand why the renewal request can’t just be sent to owners who have e-mail, but that is for another discussion.
When I send my cheques back to the bylaw office, I will be sending both renewal forms together in one envelope, thus doing my little part to save a tree and save myself the cost of a small coffee, or half of the toll across the Port Mann.
Just makes sense to me.
