At council meetings in June and July, council has heard that non-patron RVers using the campground dump station have been causing traffic and safety problems, as well as overwhelming the septic field there.
Coun. Bill Szabon noted that the campground site was not intended originally to be developed as a sewer dump, and that the septic field was developed just for shower purposes at the campground.
“I’m making the motion on the hope that we don’t have to accept any more outside crap,” said Blake.
The Town has discussed the need for a dumping station with representatives from the Pilot Flying J truck stop, and they have agreed to install a dump station at the truck stop as part of the renovations.
As a result, campers will still have a place to dump their sewage, although Flying J will place a $10 dump fee.
