THE SINKHOLE PROBLEM IS NOTHING NEW AT FORE RANCH. I HAVE LIVED NEXT TO THE PROJECT FOR A LONG TIME BEFORE IT WAS EVER DEVELOPED. THE PREVIOUS OWNER, PETE FORE WARNED US THAT THERE WHERE SINK HOLES ON HIS PROPERTY. AFTER HIS DEATH HIS FAMILY AND SEVERAL OTHER INVESTORS DEVELOPED THE PROPERTY. WE OFTEN SAW THEM FILL SINKHOLES WITH CONCRETE AND A FEW DAYS LATER BUILD CONDOS ON TOP OF THE FILLED AREA. FORE RANCH WAS AWARE THAT THERE WAS A PROBLEM, BUT MONEY TALKS IN MARION COUNTY. WE TOOK PICTURES OF THE DAMAGE THEY DID TO THE ENVIRONMENT AS THEY DEVELOPED THE PROPERTY. THEY HAVE DONE A GOOD JOB OF HIDING THE PROBLEM SO FAR BUT SOONER OR LATER THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT.

I also own a home at FORE RANCH. And don't think the home owners should be billed for the sink holes. What are we paying HOA dues for? I think we homeowners should get together and get a class action suit going.
