01/05/2009: "Keep The Dump or Move The Dump??"

How would you vote on the question of building a new transfer station? Upgrade and keep it where it is, or build a new facility on a new site? Whatever site is selected, the cost will be paid by all county property owners.

Send an email to Editor, and state your vote in the Subject line by typing in either: “KEEP IT” or “MOVE IT”

To have your vote counted, you must include your name, and your address , so we have a record that you are who you are, and are not someone voting using your name.

Read Letters on Transfer Station Issue; and email your own letter to the And, if you wish, also email a copy to

We will tally the total votes, post them on the front page, and forward them to the County Council members.

The County Council will make the decision, not the voters, but that does not mean the voters cannot be heard. The only chance voters on San Juan island may have to vote on the island dump issue is to vote on the Island Guardian.

This may be the only time you can vote on this important -and expensive- proposal that will have an impact on San Juan Island -and the county as a whole- for decades to come.
