The recent comments by present Imperial County Board of Supervisors related to illegal dumping is an echo of past supervisors who did nothing to alleviate the problem.
Who are the real creators of this mess?
Yes, I have observed the drastic increase of illegal dumping in the Northend of Imperial County since the gating and restricted use of the Niland dump.
I am a 69-year native of Imperial County, born and raised in the Calipatria area. I have four vehicles registered in this county and have a local driver's license. Per guidelines set up by the Imperial County Public Works (approved by county supervisors), I cannot use the Niland dump.
On April 15, Imperial County Public Works placed a large display ad in the Imperial Valley Press, stating: "FREE DUMPING" — (April 21)
