Board of Com­mis­sion­ers aban­doned us

The Covington News - - OPINION - Dear Ed­i­tor, Pa­trick Jones

It ap­pears The New­ton County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers have "aban­doned" the trash sys­tem and the "con­ve­nience cen­ter fa­cil­i­ties, leav­ing New­ton County res­i­dents with nowhere to dump trash, and NO al­ter­na­tive plan for the dis­posal of their trash.

The clos­ing and aban­don­ment of these "con­ve­nience cen­ter" (dump sites), as an­nounced seems to me , to be a gross mis­man­age­ment of as­sets and fa­cil­i­ties paid for , and in­vested in with New­ton County res­i­dents’ taxes.

It also seems to me that with "proper man­age­ment " good plan­ning and utiliza­tion these fa­cil­i­ties and a re­vamped sys­tem could be a cost ef­fec­tive, much needed and wel­come al­ter­na­tive to "clos­ing "and let­ting these valu­able as­sets sit idle and cost­ing many more dol­lars.
