Boat launchers leaving mess behind on Range Road 21

Dear Editor, With the cost at the main boat launch in town being so high, more and more people are using Range Road 21.

Dear Editor,

With the cost at the main boat launch in town being so high, more and more people are using Range Road 21.

They are leaving a mess behind. The most disturbing is the feces and toilet paper left behind on the land of Camp Kasota which is being used by children, as people are there all day and there are no facilities.

If this area is to be used for this purpose there should be proper facilities, e.g. more garbage cans, and properly serviced porta-potties as this is clearly a health hazard, particularly to the children using the camp.

Also evidenced is the mess they are making of the road. With all the traffic it is being dug up by the truck tires and parking in the ditch on both sides of the road. There is inadequate parking and it is causing turmoil later in the day when they are all pulling out.

We strongly recommend you take this seriously and make an effort to improve the situation.

George Johnston,

Half Moon Bay
