Buck Lake writer says no grader in almost two years

Highland Spruce Estates resident says 2017 saw last grading

Dear editor,

I live in Highland Spruce Estates, Buck Lake.

There are 65 lots here which we all have paid for dust control for five years on contract. Which is great.

But beware…every spring a grader comes in and grades the road and gravels it if needed and dust control is put down.

In spring of 2017 we had this done. In 2018 it was too wet for the grader to come in, but dust control was still put down.

Heavy trucks over the past two years have caused the roads to deteriorate. I have asked the councilors and the superintendent to grade the road this fall. Nothing done.

So what I am saying is we haven’t had a grader on our road in two years, which it will be next spring. Two years. Can you imagine, and if you have dust control nobody comes in and looks.

I was told this fall if they graded it, it would be dusty. This is October, da, da. Where’s your head? Winter’s coming.

We all pay taxes here on 65 lots. No grader, no gravel, it’s pathetic.
