Letters to the Editor

Story needed on what we got for years of consultants, studies and citizen effort

Forgive me for waiting so long to reply to your June 16 editorial on the transfer station.

Fees to recycle ... maybe, BUT not if it were to cause people to do less.

Complimenting the County Council and Town Council for establishing a more professional relationship and commending town and county officials for working out a new partnership ... compliments for working together are always a good thing to give, and a great thing to encourage.

“It’s about time” ... right on! Right On!! RIGHT ON!!!

I support the need for deliberation, debate, and the creation of alternative solutions for important issues, HOWEVER, The Journal could do a great service for the community by summarizing what was expended to give us deliberation, and alternatives over the last five or so years. How much money? How many studies, consultants, hours spent by committees, councils, answers to state agencies for noncompliance and all the effort and hours by citizen volunteers? And on and on. And what did we really get?

How about a little investigative reporting? After what has transpired, who could remember it all? I am sure it would make a great feature story.

Thanks for listening.
