Why is not open?
As far as the Army corp of Engineers are concerned. Aren't they the ones that devalued most of the houses in Miles City. If I still lived there I wouldn't care what they want. They are just trying to recoup a bunch of money that the Federal flood insurance program has been losing the last few years by guaranteeing they have more clients.
If I still lived there I wouldn't care what they want.
If there is a law about dogs that bark and someone complains then the law has to be enforced. It is as simple as that.
would it be possible for just the problem areas to be closed off and the rest left open?
Mr. Mayor, are you saying that we will never again have access to the gravel bar to launch boats?
So, while the levee is open to low-impact pedestrian, bicycle, and horse traffic it remains closed to unauthorized motor vehicle traffic until we can be sure that it's stable under current flow and freeboard levels.
"The City should allow towed-boat access over the levee and to the gravel bar west of the 7th St. Bridge because: a)larger boats can be reliably launched & loaded from there, b) it's closer to town than other boat ramps, c) river changes have made Roche Jaune too shallow for boat access , d) we've always used the gravel bar, e) FWP launches from the gravel bar sometimes so why can't we?
Can't one drive to the dike...park their car-- at the base--- walk over the dike to the river??? Do you have to actually drive ON the thing to have access to the river?
So how the corp can have any say whatsoever on how the dike is used or not used is beyond me I especially wonder how they can enforce a law on something that was pretty much built on private land all along the river and is not owned by the Corp.
How about our elected public servants make life easier for us. Who are you JFK?, "Don't ask what your country can do for you, but, what you can do for your country."
Give us our dike back.
I know that I don't want to be a mayor, councilman, or commissioner for any reason.
