We support Shepard, CSUBC | LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor:
This is in response to Dick McGrath’s opinion letter dated Feb. 24 concerning Diking District 1.
For McGrath to use the words “radical and offensive small group of neighbors” is quite surprising to my family. We would call it a large group of very concerned neighbors.
We have lived on Sunlight Beach since 1968, 42 years, and have been very unhappy with the Diking District 1 commissioners since the mid-1980s.
At that time Diking District 1, without a vote, changed the assessment policy from sharing expenses equally to assessing the costs on the appraised values of homes. Today, 25 later, there are many more issues that we are not happy about, such as whether the new pump is legal, the assessment of those costs on appraised values, water-height issues in the wetlands, drainage issues, voting issues, easement issues, etc.
We stand strongly behind John Shepard and the CSUBC to see that these issues be resolved fairly.
Don Zwiebel and family
