Maybe continuing discussion about finding a solution to this problem
instead of throwing money at a workaround would be smarter?

As much as I've had chats with other members about how there's a general
feel that paying for a cleaning service over driving the community to be
better at cleaning (potentially with monthly cleaning days) sucks and
doesn't seem like the right thing to do, it's painfully obvious I seem
to be the only one currently who cares enough to make a stink about it
in public discussion.

If a number of members other than Will can also publicly state they feel
this is a good burn of our general funds, I'll step away from blocking
consensus.
