Springs protection

Published Nov. 11, 2007 (Opinion)
It sounds like a good idea, until you read what the county has in store for us

Let's take the springs protection issue one item at a time. We all want to protect our springs. I don't care what business you may be in, clean water is essential to life, ours and the critters we know live around us. Secondly, those of us who work in Marion County mostly live here. Let me stress that: we care about what goes into our lakes and streams, we also drink the water.

Now let's discuss the proposed Springs Protection Ordinance. It has not been put together with a consensus of the stakeholders. This is really important if we citizens want this ordinance to withstand challenges and also be worth the paper it is written on.
