Stop farming in town

We live in what was once called the Co-Op subdivision, just north of the field on Highway 2A.

Dear Editor:

We live in what was once called the Co-Op subdivision, just north of the field on Highway 2A.

When we bought here 14 years ago we asked the town if there would be a back alley for this property and were shown the plans, saying yes, a back alley is planned. Since then the property was sold to the developer behind us, without our knowledge.

Therefore we do not have no back alley we were promised.

Now we have a farmer growing different crops. How much more do we have to put up with?

Since when are farmers allowed to farm within town or city limits? The dust chaff etc. that flies around when seeding and harvesting is unreal and not called for. There are people in our area who have severe health problems and cannot tolerate the dust, and smell of fertilizing. Maybe this farmer should be asked to pay for the house cleaning and car detailing and health problems because of all this crap blowing around. Maybe we should get a break on our taxes that we pay to the town, in lieu of the inconvenience and charge the farmer the added cost. I grew up on a farm so I have a good idea of what is going on, and a lot of the dust and smell can’t be helped but the town is not a place to be farming. This is unreal.

I am sure if I took a petition around, everyone in this area would sign it. Farming should not be allowed in town limits.
