Letters To The Editor

Pasco Letters to the Editor for May 11

Don’t bother with the sign

There is a big sign on Moon Lake Road that says if you see illegal activity, report it. Well, I reported someone trying to dump two truckloads of construction material next to my house a couple weeks ago.

Guess what? No one came out. No one showed up at all.

You might as well take the sign down. It is only taking up space where people could dump more trash.
