Letter to the editor
Reader spots missed opportunity

September 29, 2010

Dear Editor,

I sent a link to Linda Richardson of the Independence DPW and Neil Wallace, Township trustee, to an EPA grant for $250,000 that could be used for environmental work here.

We qualified, I checked it out, and we most certainly would have received the money, all that had to be done was to fill out an application and write a grant, something I knew how to do and would have done, given the opportunity.

I would have personally benefited from this as there would have actually been work in my career field that I would have been almost guaranteed to be hired for, as the grant was to be used on local projects with local people. I canít tell you why nothing was done about it, all I know is that nothing was done. I assume they didnít think it was important.
