Resident not happy with county decision

Re: “Request to Maintain County Land Denied”...County council met expectations once again!

Dear editor,

Re: “Request to Maintain County Land Denied”

County council met expectations once again!

I didn’t expect them to pick up the ball and help my situation and that’s exactly what they are going to do…..nothing. What I am disappointed in is Mr. Van de Kraatz’ very insensitive comment given that he knows little or nothing about this issue.

What we are talking about is a small “hay field” 120 feet by 66 feet that lies between my property and my neighbour to the west (about 10 minutes work for the county mower).

I live on a corner lot and already cut the ditches on two sides of my property. The piece in question is reserved for a future street on the backside of my house. In effect, a street on three sides of my property. A little consideration from the county would have been greatly appreciated but….too much to expect I guess.
