Dear Editor,

First off, I would like to welcome the new Sheriff Mr. Handte to Mineral County. He has quite a chore ahead of him but the right person can get it done.

As far as I’m concerned the position had to be filled by someone from out of town. Good luck, Sheriff Handte.

A note to the commissioners, when you wrote or changed the ordinance on blight in Mineral County, which became law on July 1, if I’m not mistaken.

I know at least ten forms that have been filled out, signed with pictures of the properties. Six months have passed and as far as I can see, there has been nothing done. At this rate, Mineral County will never get cleaned up.

As I have been told by a few people, this is more B.S. by the Commissioners and that nothing will be done as always.

Is it too much to ask of the commissioners to put a note in the paper about the progress? As a few people stated at the last meeting at the Convention Center, the general public is left in the dark and as far as a recall rumor, that’s too nice of a word. Someone needs to be flat out fired.

Thanks for reading. Have a nice day.

Best Regards,

Butch Seymour
