Citizens of Coos County, I must issue a retraction from my previous letter about the unfairness of Coos County and Beaver Hill Disposal Center.
I received a personal phone call from Commissioner John Sweet about my concerns and complaints about the operation of the Beaver Hill facility. After a 30 minute discussion in which he shared information that I was ignorant of, as most of our citizens are, about increased fees and restrictions placed by industries that accept our recycling material, I came to the conclusion that our board is doing their best to do the right thing for the citizens of Coos County.
I can only offer my thanks to Mr. Sweet for reaching out to me and to the entire board. As I expressed to Mr. Sweet, the lack of communication from the board to its citizens can create anger and resentment, which I can relate to after years in the military and health care community having to deal with misunderstandings is a huge challenge.
I tip my cap to Mr. Sweet and his fellow board members for their efforts to improve the daily lives of the citizens of Coos County.
