To the Lowndes County Board of Commissioners:
My name is Travis Bennett, and I've lived in Naylor for 9 years. One of the reasons I moved to Naylor was the river. When I moved here there were picnic tables and trash cans down there. It was really nice to have a picnic and family get together!
I live less than a mile from the boat ramp. My step son, Levi Giddens, and I go down and fish all the time. He loves fishing that river!
I've worked with the local DNR officer, Keith, on the litter and unruly people. In the past couple of years the river has stayed a lot cleaner. So I'm not sure why it is being said it is trashed down there.
I am disappointed that it took until late last week to get the public hearing sign up. I was at the last hearing on this and spoke with Joyce Evans. She stated the river should remain open. I hope she still thinks the same thing. I just wanted to state a few things I was thinking about.
