Save the dam

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

     The (Mon Maq) Dam is in need of repair. No one has got an estimate of how much it will cost.

     A company in Minnesota will take it out for $2.4 million, which will come from (free) grant money. They will even pay the $150,000 we borrowed from the DOT to do the removal study.

     The water behind the dam will drop 13 feet The new boat ramp above the dam will be 13 feet above water. What will it do to the ponds on the golf course?

     P.S. There is a meeting at Central Park on July 17 at 6:45 p.m.

Thank you,

Harvey Johnson
