From the Daily News:
The city is beefing up the ranks of its Sanitation Department by hiring 300 new sanitation workers over the next few months.
This is good news for Sanitation union officials, who have repeatedly complained about a dwindling workforce, as well as for candidates whose names have been sitting on a slow-moving civil service list.
It could also be a strong signal from the city - still smarting from last winter's botched snow cleanup - that it is anxious to head off any future problems.
That's great. When are we getting more cops?
