Letters to the Editor

Letter | Reward offered to find those who dumped wood

The Reporter’s story on somebody or some contractor’s dumping cedar log pieces on Mercer Island in the Mercerdale neighborhood, presumably to avoid a legal site’s dump fees, really demands action.

Rather than the taxpayers of Mercer Island paying money and time for city workers, as described by arborist Paul West, to remedy this disgrace, I pledge $50 to the Reporter for the CEDAR Fund (Catch Evasive Dumpers And Report) for the city’s receipt of any information leading to citing the dumper in Judge Wayne Stewart’s court, as well as revoking any dumper’s business license, if they deigned to get one.

Perhaps other readers will add to the pledge.
