Defending trailers in Keweenaw Cty.

To the editor:

This is in response to a Letter to the Editor dated July 25 entitled “Supports board on trailer issue.”

I’m part owner of the lot next to the lot Mr. Junot has his camper setup on. I, too, have my camper set up there.

You said you were concerned about the sewer- water-electrical.

We have to bring our water from home in 5 gallon jugs for our showers, dishes and drinking. We had electricity run in by the power company which had to be inspected before they could hook up our meters. As for sewage, there is a port-a-potty set up for guests. The port-a-potty and the campers are pumped out by a licensed sewage removal company.

I do not know if it was your intent to try to start a rumor that we have our sewage buried in 50 gallon barrels but that’s how rumors start, people taking about things they don’t know anything about.

The location of these campers is .5 mile from a main road.

On a road Keweenaw County does not maintain. We are not on the lake in view of anyone.

I, like Mr. Junot, do not own a truck that can pull my camper.

Making me move my camper two times a year will put a unnecessary financial burden on me and others.

I would rather have the county come out and check that the campers have been winterized and tarped for winter seeing there going to check every camping spot in the county anyways.
