2 The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder September l@, 1976 Wake up the planners There have been two recent developments in Gilmer County which we hope will bestir the Gilmer County Planning Commission to action. The commission has for some reason successfully evaded the problem of providing a plan for a county-run solid waste landfill. Now with the local sanitation company threatened with a possible cease and desist order {see page 1} that problem becomes all the more acute. The funds for such a project would have to come from the Gilmer County Commission or be secured by Region VII Planning and Development Council. Neither agency can act, however, until they are submitted a plan. The county commissioners and municipality officers should be working very closely with the planning commission on this problem. The construction of a coal preparation plant near Stouts Mill and four new deep mines to service it, will not only change the physical features of our county but with the possible creation of up to 100 new jobs will come probable economic and social changes. At least two planning commission members have expressed some reservations about the preparation plant {see page 1}. The commission can demand that Harry Boggs appear before them and answer satisfactorily all their questions. If he should fail to appear or give unsatisfactory answers then a letter of protest from the planning commission to the state Division of Water Resources could go a long way toward halting construction of the plant. The time for planning is before the fact. With proper planning we shouldn't have to worry about disasterous repercussions.
