To the Editor:
There is talk in Marion about which group the Selectmen will appoint to handle the Sprague’s Cove storm water basin. One of their options is to give control to the Conservation Commission, which is the group that had the previous storm water system removed in 2012.
The Selectmen may want to consider a far better alternative. The Open Space Commission has formed a subcommittee of storm water professionals to oversee the many storm water basins on their properties, and that subcommittee would be a great fit for Sprague’s Cove.
This would free up the Conservation Commission to concentrate on their real job – protecting the wetlands in Marion. I think it is a win-win solution for all of us who have expressed concern.
Elizabeth Leatham, Marion
