Reader supports burn permits

August 10, 2011 - Dear editor,

I felt it important to express my support for the existing burn regulations.

I live on a half acre that contains over 50 trees. My neighbors also have many trees. The thought of bagging all those leaves, sticks etc. simply to go into the landfill does not make sense to me.

I don't see that as an environmental solution. The limited burning regulations that we have in place have worked for decades.

While I feel badly for the person with the smoke allergy, I have to question why she chose Independence Township given the existing burn regulations.

I really do feel that many of today's governmental bodies focus on accommodating the needs of a small minority while forgetting the best interests of the majority. Put to a vote, I feel confident the existing regulations would stay in place.
