Letter: Board action should be reason for us to get involved

Published: Wednesday, October 24, 2012 at 02:02 PM.

They plan to have input from residents on Oct. 25. That will be as productive, as we only hear of it in the Oct. 17 Havelock News, as the public hearings they hold at the meetings when the law demands it. No one shows up, as we know that we are not heard, like when 90 percent of us told the city that Hollywood Boulevard, Creek Road and Railroad Street already had septic and water and did not want to be taken into the city system, and this just so they can collect taxes. We promptly got a letter congratulating us on being in the city and warning us that if we did not pay the minimum water usage bill, charges would be made.

I’m beginning to wonder if the board meetings are holding minutes so our board can remind themselves of what has been stated and voted on so that they themselves can stick to it.

I think the residents need to come to the monthly board meetings held on the fourth Monday of the month at 7 p.m. where the residents have five minutes each to speak, and hope the board listens to what we want and need. Then consider going out to vote for new members who give a darn about we the taxpayers. Maybe even get involved enough to run for election to replace someone on the different seats. Wake up all you residents. Let’s make some changes please.
