Open Let­ter

Catron Courier - - News -

In con­junc­tion with other prob­lems not yet lo­cally ad­dressed, the EPA will not per­mit Dump Sites be­cause those who were sup­posed to com­ply with sev­eral reg­u­la­tions and take a few sim­ple reg­u­lar tests did not do so.

Please do not tell us it is not your fault. We know things like check­ing wa­ter to make sure it was not pol­luted by dump sites was not done in a timely mat­ter pre­vi­ous to those in power now.

Those that are in power now didn't do it ei­ther.

We should not have to pay for those mis­takes nor foot the bill be­cause this and oth- er reg­u­la­tions were not ad­hered to.

Those re­spon­si­ble for those "lapses" should pay.

You threaten us with fines, liens, col­lec­tions, court ap­pear­ances for not pay­ing Solid Waste Fees as if we were some kind of crim­i­nals. In my pre­vi­ous later, I stated why many can­not af­ford to pay as you wish them to do

What has been done or what will you do to those who are re­spon­si­ble for cre­at­ing the prob­lem in the first place? They were the ones who dropped the ball.

Sin­cerely, Dawn Mckay
