I agree 100%. If anyone wants a good look at what money speculators and knowing people in high places can do, take a ride down Possum Trot Road. You will see exactly how the land is being raped over and over in the name of money. (It sure isn't in the name of progress.)Plus, the property values of the residents of Possum Trot Road will plunge as their taxes go up and up. Also, who will pay for all the medical costs when all the crap they put in the landfill starts to ruin the residents' wells. Interesting questions, right? No matter what the new "neighbors" of Possum Trot Road said, the landfill will affect these two things in a very negative way for generations to come.
No matter how hard the residents fought this destructive monster, they were outnumbered by money, slick lawyers, political connections, and, when the whole thing started years ago, a spineless Board of Commissioners.
So now this part of the county has two monsters in the area: a destructive landfill and an equally destructive rock quarry. Neither will provide enough, if any, jobs to the residents of Lamar County, nor will they bring in enough money to the county coffers to make either of them worthwhile. Instead, we now have two gigantic eyesores to blight the landscape of Lamar County. How sad. Wonder what the next "garbage industry" will want to move to Lamar County and succeed?
I tried to read this on the other website but what they wrote is hard to read and makes no sense. There seems to be two sides presented here, one saying it was tossed out and this one saying it was not.
What is the real story here? Did the agreement get tossed out or not?
The county needs to adopt a logical legal land use plan. ASAP. They need to do that before worrying about fire stations and all that qwap. Until they actually get off their butts and do that we will face a lot more of this stuff. Things like this don't need to happen.
