My offer to pay $100 to the first person who can show me Kennydale creek dried up has struck a nerve with one of my readers. I can’t tell exactly why they might be so upset with me, but there seems to be quite a bit of emotion in this comment.
To the commenter: If people are pouring fuel into the creek, or anything else so wreckless, please make sure the proper environmental agencies are informed. I would like to hear the details as well. As a part-time legislator, I am in no position to patrol the whole city for environmental violations like this. However, once told about them, I CAN make sure that someone acts on them.
Also, there are studies and findings that were produced during the last administration that I have never had confidence in, including the one that said Kennydale Creek was an intermittent creek. If you think I agreed with everything our last mayor did, you were not watching the meetings or keeping up with my blog.
If you think we should commission a new study, I could support this. However, I don’t even think we need a study to prove that this creek is a year-round creek…. our community observations should be enough. We certainly have many other uses that we could put the $20,000 study-money toward, other than to tell us something we all already can see by looking.
