Soldier questions lack of response (05/22/07)
ear editor, The letter below was e-mailed to 15 of the 18 commissioners over two weeks ago. I wanted to send it to all 18 commissioners, but I couldn't get the other three commissioner's email. To my disappointment, not a single commissioner that voted in favor of the land fill expansion replied back nor did I receive one single reason of how the land fill expansion could help our community. Evidently, they are not concerned about what their constituent's think. I guess they felt that since I was in South Korea, that no response was necessary. To the Commissioners of Marshall County, I would like to say that I am very disappointed that you would not bother to at least respond and give me the consideration of an answer. Since you could not give me 10 good reasons of how this expansion could help our community, here are ten reasons why I think this expansion is going to be a detriment to our community and put our citizens at unnecessary risk: Marshall County has a history of contamination that includes the Rock Crusher landfill, the train wreck in the Verona area, the Heil Quaker spill, and the TCE contamination of a well in the Double Bridges area. Don't you think that we need to proceed with caution? The East Fork Globe Creek has been on Tennessee 303 d list since 2002, 2004, 2006 and it still hasn't been cleared up.
