Dunn could learn a lot from the state about avoiding responsibility

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

My wife Elaine and I own the Belknap Point Motel here in Gilford. Our motel has a swim area and raft on the lake. Last week a guest reported to me that they could see a television set on the lake bottom between the shore and the raft in about 10 feet of water. Apparently someone decided it was easier to dispose of a television by dumping it in the lake than taking it to the transfer station and paying the disposal fee. Since it is state property, I decided to call the state to remove it. I got referred and transferred five or six times to various state agencies, each claiming to not be the responsible agency. Out of frustration I called Scott Dunn, our town administrator. After explaining the situation to Scott he said without hesitation, "I'll take care of it. Next time I'm out in the boat I'll come by and get it out."

I was very surprised by Scott's response and once again want to say "Thank You" for your outstanding service.
