"Much has changed on Ragged Mountain in a short amount of time."

a lot of trees have been clear cut when we could have dredged and saved some money at the same time

They could have used the dredged soil to extend the airport runway as well, as has been done at other airports. But blasting is more fun, I guess.

Oh crap you're here too. So tell us why they didn't dredge? And don't try to blame it on Realtors.

If the idiots that know best would have raised the existing dam on the south fork near sams we could have quadrupled the amount of storage at a fraction of the cost.

This fiasco is the perverted brainchild of Fredericks. There is no money for graft in dredging. They'll finish the dam but no mention of the 9 miles of pipeline and its cost to finish the reservoir. Why dredge when you exploit rate payers.

Tom Fredricks needs to be run out of town.
He is a criminal.
Is he elected or appointed?
If appointed, do not vote for those that supported this bozo.

Yeah, I know about RESPA. But I asked you a question. Who got a kickback and how much? You accused someone of receiving a kickback. I assume you have substantial evidence to support your claim. I'm sorry....what's that you say....oh; so you don't really have evidence you were just running your mouth again. Now that's something I can believe.

Actually it was suggested by a Crozet resident at a public meeting. By newspaper accounts the rates are going down slightly. I guess your "graft" allegation is phony too.

My water bill increased a few months after the dam project was approved.
