Setting the record straight on Lot 47

Contrary to Mr. Ianetta's recent letter, and for the record, as town administrator at the time, I originally proposed to the Jamestown Town Council that Lot 47 adjacent to the landfill be purchased for the specific purpose of locating and constructing a new highway garage.

The site was, chosen and subsequently purchased because it was for sale, it existed as a vacant piece of land adjacent to the landfill and it had not previously been used as landfill. It was, and remains to this day, a large enough land area to contain the necessary building and storage areas and also provide a landscape "buffer" between those public works uses and the surrounding neighborhood.
