Guilty Until Proven Innocent

Guilty Until Proven Innocent

The Dearborn County Health Board has scheduled a meeting to address potential sewage disposal problems in the neighborhoods around HighRidge Estates. The meeting is set for Thurs March 20th at 7:30 PM in the county administration building- Commissioners Room. The Sewer Board (DCRSD) will meet with them.

In the February 25th 2008 letter to residents of the area the Health Board states:

At the January 27, 2008 meeting of the Dearborn County Board of Health, potential sewer problems in your neighborhood were discussed. Failed or failing onsite sewage disposal systems (septic systems) are a health hazard and can lead to a myriad of disease causing organisms.

The Dearborn County Board of Health has been working with other county agencies to try to address this unhealthy environmental issue. While this cooperative effort is still ongoing, the problems continue to pollute the road ditches, streams, and groundwaters of your neighborhood. The onsite system (septic system) serving your residence may be contributing to this situation.

This meeting is being called to provide you, and other residents, an opportunity to show why your respective residence is not part of the problem. A more comprehensive approach including, but not limited to, individual residences being screened, additional water sampling of the affected areas, and necessary enforcement action being pursued, could be employed.

You are encouraged to attend this very important meeting. If you have any questions concerning this meeting, or your onsite sewage disposal system (septic system), please feel free to contact the department office prior to the meeting date.

Sincerely,

Gary E Scudder, MD, Secretary
Dearborn County Board of Health

So now DCRSD has made allegations against the septic owners in the area so they can force them onto teh sewers?
Are these sewers going to be GRAVITY?

"This meeting is being called to provide you, and other residents, an opportunity to show why your respective residence is not part of the problem."

And the heavy hands of development owned government stooges are getting ready for another attempt at bullying the rest of us to subsidize the sewers of Maxwell and friends.

They must act fast, with the knowledge that most of their flunkies will be voted out of office in the coming years.

Hey Scudder, no one will fund your nonsense.

Isn't Dennerline on the health board?

That is how laughable the health board is.

Let me guess, Doug Baer is just itching to throw his wait around to do Maxwell's dirty work?

All these clowns are doing is to ensure that their political enablers will be voted from office by landslide proportions.

All this double-talk around not fixing High Ridge until Gabbard Estates John Zieden gets the taxpayer to pay for their sewers.

Pathetic!

Fix HVL and High Ridge's overflowing sewers before you try to picayune our septic systems into non-compliance to meet the needs of a few politically connected development interests, Dr. Scudder.

How many millions of gallons of raw sewage has Hidden Valley and High Ridge Estates dumped into our waterways? But Scudder wants to monitor our individual septic systems, around areas a few developers want sewers for their projects? Give me a break.

Scudder needs to spend his time more wisely, like examining DCRSD Board Members for crabs and head lice.

Dearborn County?

One screwed up place.

"Are these sewers going to be GRAVITY?"

Absolutely not! DCRSD is not even looking at gravity sewers. The low pressure sewers put the cost on the homeowners for the pumping equipment (grinder pumps). This keeps the initial cost for the Board lower. It places the monetary load and the future maintenance and replacement costs on the homeowners!!

DCRSD and the Health Board are trying to use the homeowners to black mail Council into funding their folly.

And Dennerline is on the Health Board and the sewer board!!!

Translation: Dennerline has the Health Board doing the dirty work for the sewer board!

Is Doug Baer yipping and pumping Scudders leg to give him permission to send out forced hookup letters in order for Brett and Zeiden can get their taxpayer subsidized sewers?

Fehrman Realty and Zeiden's business is off limits to me, my family and my neighbors' business.

Disband the DCRSD Now!!!

And remove Denerline from both Boards, before he figures another way to benefit at the taxpayer's expense.

It would seem, that the thinking, caring and also thosewanting to hold on to their elected positions, have already committed to defunding the bastards of the DCRSD.

I think Dr. Scudder should do a phone poll. Letters and meetings? What nonsense! He will get the information he needs simply by calling those on "the list".

"...can lead to a myriad of disease causing organisms."

What sort of medically induced coma was Scudder in while HVL and High Ridge combined, poured tons of "disease causing organisms" into Double Lick Creek and Hogan's?

Did Maxwell and his enablers somehow recently jog his seemingly feeble memory?

Jeff Hughes during one of his fact finding phone calls:

"ARE YOU AWARE THAT RALPH THOMPSON PERSONALLY DIVERTED RAW SEWAGE FROM HIGH RIDGE ESTATES AND HIDDEN VALLEY LAKE INTO YOU PRECIOUS WATERWAYS? FOR FURTHER INFORMATION, PLEASE CALL THE LAW OFFICE OF BOB EWBANK TO FIND OUT THE "REAL" TRUTH AS TO THE NEFARIOUS SEWER OVER-FLOWING NATURE OF A MR. RALPH THOMPSON!!!"
