This is in response to my letter in The Independent newspaper dated March 8, 2012.
I’ve received numerous comments from people living at the Golf Course since then. I do appreciate their feedback and communications. By no means in my letters was I directing my comments to the residents of Chewelah Golf and Country Club (CG&CC). These residents purchased their homes and property in good faith with hard earned money.
My issue has been with the City of Chewelah and foremost the developers of the Chewelah Golf and Country Club. There is a conflict of interest coming from every direction with these two different entities; the developers and the City of Chewelah.
As a retired real estate broker I have a little knowledge about sub-division developments and City and State ordinances on these matters. First, there is no egress to this sub-division which endangers the public safety. The fire hydrants are not providing proper water flow for fires. The streets are not in compliance and have not been deeded over to the City. The well at Chewelah Golf and Country Club has not been deeded over to the City and the Golf Course is not paying the proper fee for water usage. These are all violations of statutes, ordinances and laws of some type or another.
In conclusion; it doesn’t matter what is right or wrong or legal but who you are.
