This notice was on the Birchrunville Post Office bulletin board last
Saturday. After complaints it was removed by the
postmaster. This is the sort of misinformation that honest
people are currently exposed to in West Vincent.
Monteith worked on this project for ONE DAY last May. Since
then the contractor has been Jeff Lewis who is to be the new township
auditor. Here is a short letter I received.
"Besides the contractor, The current 3
supervisors do not enforce regulations for their friends and are to
blame. That's where the problem is. Jeff is one of Zoe &
Clare's favorites. He bought his land from Zoe."
I received the following letter around a couple weeks ago, it seems
appropriate to quote it now.
Dave Monteith may have originally been involved in this project but has
not participated in it for months. I suggest you ask Dave
when his involvement ceased. I do not know the Arthur's but
they have been rearranging their landscape 7 days a week all spring and
summer long. From 7 AM until dusk the earth movers have been
at work. It has appeared to many neighbors passing the
property in question that the storm fencing was inadequate. I
am glad that someone captured the mud tide on film for all to
see. This was not the first nor will it be the last such
sight of the mud flowing down our roads and into the Birch
Run. I suggest you contact the neighbors who are most
affected by this flooding.
I saw Dave today at the post office and he says that he is hearing from
an agency that oversee this type of problem. It seems he is
being blamed for the mud and your mention of his work in your article
has focused the light on him.
Our township seems to be negligent when it comes to enforcing this type
of violation. We are known for our steep slopes and bountiful
water supply. I would think that particular caution would be
taken under the circumstances.
I have an issue with Birchrun Village piping a stream, destroying
wetlands and taking out all of the trees along the stream that would
normally filter some of the extreme runoff from storms but now dumps
all the water into the spillway of the property below the old township
Perhaps we need to send our zoning officer/building inspector to
courses that cover all of these issues so that they can be more aware
of the problems that can result from not overseeing and anticipating
the problems that have occurred.
Please, feel free to use my letters to you. I would also
prefer to remain anonymous.."
A question - I'll answer this
I want to vote for Malasics and Holderness, but I see they are not on
the ballot. How do I go about voting for them?
"Right on! Can we put their signs in our yards or
do they believe in hand made signs, as Barry did."
I know that they have what signs that were not stolen that they will be
putting out. Send Maria an e-mail and tell her your address. I am sure
she can get one out to you. From her website: vote4mariaH@gmail.com
