Business owner in a Democrat stronghold shocked after burning a fortune on this ridiculousness

Democrats are making major cities ungovernable.

They refuse to undo their bad policies.

And one business owner in a Democrat stronghold had to spend a fortune on this ridiculous thing.

Citizens in deep-blue areas like New York have to pay absurdly high taxes.

In return for those taxes, one would think they get functional city services like trash pickup.

But that is not the case.

A pizzeria owner in Brooklyn had to pay tens of thousands of dollars of his own money for trash to get picked up in his neighborhood.

Sean Feeney, owner of Fini Pizza in Williamsburg has spent $60,000 since fall of 2022 on garbage.

The New York Post reported that “[i]nstead of flooding 311 with futile complaints about the muck, Feeney opened his cash register to help clean up his section of Williamsburg and now Downtown Brooklyn with an initiative he calls ‘clean streets.’ Since the fall of 2022, he’s dropped a whopping $60,000 of his own revenue on bins, bags and private trash pick-up.”

Feeney explained, “I lived [in Williamsburg] since 2016. I saw the deterioration in cleanliness…It’s unacceptable, it’s embarrassing and it’s disgusting…The mission of Fini is to deliver good days together. We’ve done that through serving delicious pizza and Italian ice. But we also did it by committing 3% of our revenue to invest it back into our neighbors.”

Feeney polled customers on improvements they wanted from the restaurant, and the number one request was a cleaner exterior.

Feeney explained that “94% of our response rate was cleaner streets. When you hear guest after guest, neighbor after neighbor, comment on it, I said, ‘Let’s do something about it.’”

The Post added that Feeney “bought five garbage cans for $220 a pop, painted them with the motto ‘clean streets’ and Fini crown logo, and placed them by nearby businesses.”

Feeney continued, “We noticed overnight that it was cleaner, so we kept adding cans. We maintained them and had pick-up every night.”

Businesses should not have to pay for garbage pickup on top of the taxes they pay, but that has become the reality of New York.

Mayor Eric Adams said that the city would experience cutbacks in light of the migrant crisis brought on by Joe Biden’s border policies.

Feeney added, “I think it’s easy and rational to put the responsibility on government. We didn’t want to waste time even thinking that. We wanted to know what we could do to help.”

Relying on government would have been a waste of time, indeed.
