Transfer station restrictions exist for a reason
Letter to the editor
To the editor:
Fred Weber Inc. reportedly is willing to cease the proposed operation of a trash-transfer station in their Oakville quarry when quarrying operations there end at some future date.
Nice try, but allowing the trash-transfer station even for a single day makes no sense.
Large sums of federal tax dollars were spent on flood buyouts. Larger sums of rate-payers' money are being spent to build a new sewage disposal plant.
The goal? A cleaned up and restored Meramec River greenway. So, how does a trash-transfer station in the middle of all that, even for an open-ended, limited amount of time contribute to that goal?
Obviously, it doesn't.
The original zoning restrictions excluding a trash-transfer station exist for good reason. Let's hope reason prevails.

How about calling it MehlCrest or CrestMehl?
