On the subject of allowing pools — I have a huge problem with this.
A few years ago I tried to get a pool put in to teach scuba diving. I brought to the table plans for a vulcanized rubber pool cover that would have nearly zero evaporation when covered and two signed agreements to supply me water from outside sources via trucks and a storage tank to maintain it.
Somewhere in the water department are copies of all my letters and letters from Buzz Walker explaining to me that under no instance will there ever be another pool (allowed in the town limits) unless it was prescribed by a doctor.
I also talked to several people in the building department with no success. So, I went to Mayor Evans and with an absolute tone in his voice he explained to me that the town cannot and will not be able to support outdoor pools of any type and that he would never go against or override the ordinance that was on the books.
So, I let go of the dream of teaching scuba up here.
How can I go about getting copies of those letters from the water department?
After reading the mayor’s letter to Mr. Wagenhals, I feel taken advantage of. Maybe if I had a lot of money the town would have treated me different. Because living here for 30 years, running businesses, providing jobs, volunteering for several organizations and raising a family here meant nothing.
Shame on you, Mayor Evans and any council person that had knowledge of this. You should all step down.
