Letter to the editor 1, Aug. 27, 2015
I am responding to the anonymous letter that appeared in the August 20, 2015 edition of Your Local Journal in connection with the illegal dumping on Seigneurie Road.
The Town of Hudson's action to stop the dumping of materials was a result of complaints from residents on that street. The Town By-law #562 does not allow for dumping of any kind, be it grass clippings, twigs, or drywall. Why is it that vacant property, be it town-owned or private, is treated in such a fashion? To clean up this spot or any other would cost far more than the price of blocks and steel cables- costs that all Hudson residents would have to bear.
As residents know, the town offers branch and leaf pick up as well as regular garbage and re-cycling services. Should residents wish to compost grass clippings or other organic materials, they are certainly free to do so on their own property without further burdening the Hudson taxpayer.
