Dredging questions

To the Editor:

In Wonder Lake, a permit must not be needed to spend $2.7 million of taxpayer money for a dredging dump site next to a school.

Isn’t a permit required for pretty much everything before doing the work?

Taxpayers of Wonder Lake, are you aware of this – paying SSA taxes for two-plus years and no permit for dredging?

Insurance is needed three years after the job is completed because of possible nasty contaminants that might be at the bottom of the lake to be dredged and dumped next to a school.

Schoolchildren parents, are you aware of that? Wells/drinking water problems? Has public notice been made of even the possibility? I live in Wonder Lake and love it – great neighbors and good people. Take care of the lake? Yes. With no gameplan? No.

Wonder Lake taxpayers, your subdivision directors approved this. Did you know? Did you say yes? Time to ask questions.
