if you have a sepic tank in lee county it will cost u now 100 dollers to dump... not the 65 it is now... odd thing is..they have stoped dumping cause the plant is messed up..but they have raised the fee this will effect everyone who has a sepic tank... an the people who do that job... o well guess next election we have to clean house...this is really stupid...

Echol knows where every tank in Lee County is located. If you got a problem, he's the man.
It's a shame he has to deal with the powers of the town. I would use him if it cost twice as much.
I've seen him search for peoples tanks for hours, and charge nothing extra. Just a great guy.
Heard the Mayor didn't like his truck parked in town. Wished he could haul BULLSHI!, there's a
big ole load at the Mayors office.

I have wondered how Danny Carter got voted in as Mayor...... Everyone I have talked to about this has said they didn't vote for him, and I've discussed this with quite a few people. So, are the ones that actually voted for him too ashamed to admit it now? Or how did he get put in that office in the first place if "nobody voted for him"? Hmm Just something to think about.

Danny Carter is a whole lot of bully and talk who acts as though he can do anything he wants to do but as I have found out and thought I would pass this info along to the rest you, go to the council members for action. I did and got results. They are Larry Holbrook, Gary McElyea, Terry Pope, Jim Smallwood, and Keith Harless. They actually have power and outside of a couple they will take their time and listen to you, especially Mr. McElyea and Mr. Holbrook. Go to them and voice your complaints. I guarantee at least those two council members will check into whatever problem you have and they will contact you back when they have done so. Try it and see.

You people are so dumb the town don't have to take care of anyone septic and waste except the town. That the law of the land state take care of state property, County take care of the county and the town take care of the town. If you live in the county of Lee and septic is running over talk to the county supervisor.
