Letter: Scarborough needs 'outrage'

It is my hope that the people of Scarborough will express their outrage at the action of the Town Council on July 15. A good portion of Depot Road will be given to a private organization free of charge in what is characterized as a "land swap."

A public hearing on the matter was held prior to the vote of the council. A number of people spoke against the land swap and a petition also was submitted, all of which fell on deaf ears with the majority of the councilors. Several councilors expressed reservations and asked for the matter to be tabled. They were ignored.

It is possible for councilors voting against the land swap to ask that this vote be reconsidered at the next council meeting. I certainly hope that Councilors Roy and Sullivan will do the right thing and request a reconsideration vote on this land give-away.

I ask that you contact Councilors Roy and Sullivan and ask for their support on this matter.
