POA needs to pro­vide re­li­able dump

The Weekly Vista - - News -

I be­came a home­owner in Bella Vista in 2010. I quickly learned that the trash haulers here, un­like the haulers in Tulsa, would not pick up bags of yard clip­pings. I was sup­posed to go to a stump dump. The POA web­site told me that there were three dumps. I drove to the clos­est one, which had been closed. The POA had failed to up­date their web­site.

How­ever, I found my way to the Trafal­gar Road stump dump, which served my pur­pose. But I learned that that stump dump kept un­re­li­able hours. Rain or ex­treme wet­ness was sup­posed to be the fac­tor that af­fected its avail­abil­ity, but it was fre­quently closed at other times for no ap­par­ent rea­son.

But, thank heaven, there was the High­lands stump dump way out west — and it was al­ways open! But there came a day when the POA started putting hours on it. Bum­mer!

Now we’ve lost High­lands — our only re­main­ing dump. We have none! I un­der­stand that the POA wasn’t re­spon­si­ble for this clos­ing, but I do think it is re­spon­si­ble for pro­vid­ing us at least one re­li­able dump. It’s ridicu­lous that we are be­ing di­rected to Ben­tonville or Spring­dale for this pur­pose.

It seems that Bella Vista is full of grouchy old peo­ple. I guess I’m now part of the club. Since 2010 I’ve voted for ev­ery in­crease in POA as­sess­ments, but that string will come to an end un­less we get a stump dump very soon. I will not sup­port an or­ga­ni­za­tion that doesn’t do its job.
