Stop abusing a privilege PDF Print E-mail

Dear Editor:
I appreciate this community so much for supporting our youth by volunteering at track meets, watching events at speech meets and attending music and drama events.  
Many of you take time off from work and give of your personal time to support our kids.  I know it means a lot to the kids to see the local banker, dentist or pastor showing up to support them!
I am also very grateful that the City of Grant provides a place for residents to dump grass and branches. There is even a roll-off container for approved trash items.  
This weekend I was shocked at how some folks abuse this opportunity.  
There was trash dumped in the branches, the roll-off was overflowing with someone’s building materials and someone even ‘gifted’ a hot-tub.  
Let’s be more responsible, folks!
