Grand County should have solicited public input about transfer station

To the Editor:Communication does not seem to be a high priority for Grand County Road and Bridge officials in reference to the article about a done deal the buying of six acres for the trash transfer site near Hot Sulphur Springs.Was this a part of the Grand County Master Plan? We went to one of the meetings and nothing was mentioned about this. Unless we missed it there was no meeting to talk over the impact of such a facility on the town of Hot Sulphur Springs, the heavy traffic that this might generate, the close proximity to the Colorado River and whether or not this would be an eyesore to be seen from Highway 40.In addition, if the trash is to be sent to the Front Range wouldn’t it be better to have the facility closer to the Front Range rather than further west than the current landfill?Why can’t the Granby landfill be used as the transfer site? It’s already there. Lots of questions but no time or chance given to even ask them.Christine & Stephen LeeHot Sulphur Springs
