It’s been cleaned up


To the Editor:

I go down to the beach at the end of SAM Gorton almost every day to relax and look at the birds. For the past 31 years I have had to look at the mess made by the huge bonfire remains from the fire on the 4th of July. This year it was different due to the fine efforts of our councilman and the sanitation department that removed all the debris before it could be burned.

Now if only a drainage system could be devised to eliminate the mosquito breeding puddles that cover half of the parking lot, this place would get a lot more use.

As someone who has lobbied for a general clean up, as well as a re-installation of the boat ramp, my understanding is that DEM says it's the city's responsibility. The city says it's DEM's responsibility. DEM also mentions something pertaining to the lot being "handicapped accessible" in order for them to engage. Shocking (smirk) that government entities are tripping over one another. In the interim, kudos to Councilman Ladouceur.
