Residents of Mooers, wake up before it is too late. An article, “Zoning,” appearing in Speak Out thanks Justin Sample for standing up for town people and stating “hopefully this is the start of the town making decision based on written zoning laws and codes, not personal interpretations.” The truth being Justin Sample, a couple of contractors and an outsider don’t want to obey the zoning laws which control how vacant buildings can be used. Some examples: the old post office in Mooers, with only a cesspool for septic, was purchased and the owners are upset because they can’t convert it into apartments and also a building which used to be a restaurant, can’t be converted into apartments because the lot is too small. These people should check out the zoning laws before they purchase to see what the buildings can be used for. These laws and codes are reviewed by a lawyer before the are adopted by the town at an advertised public meeting that NO residents saw fit to attend to voice their opinions.
On a different note, Mooers Supervisor Rudolph Miller will be done effective January 1, 2012, but the zoning laws and codes will still be here. I feel someone must speak on Supervisor Miller’s behalf to counter all the rumors. Supervisor Miller is a good family man and leader. Rumor has it he hasn’t done anything for the town of Mooers, but look at the three recreation parks, the new town equipment, fire department equipment, library improvements and through good management the town is debt free. In all honesty, how can you say Supervisor Rudolph Miller has done nothing for the town? You’ve opted to go from an experienced leader to an inexperienced person. What a choice!
