    We were with Northern Energy, Amerigas, for at least 20 years. Every year would have to discuss items to me that looked excessive. The folks who come out to do the service are great. The office staff, not so much. We have been on keep full program for years. This summer we ran out and they said they would be out first thing in the morning. Didn’t show that day or the next. It had been cloudy and not much solar during those days so I ended up going to the State Park so I could be sure to have electricity for my cpap. That was enough, I fired them and got Farrell gas. Last week they finally picked up their tank and a few days later got a “final bill”. Since we had been on balanced pay at the time of the incident we had about $900 to the good. There was no mention of that in the final bill. They charged $149 for pump out and restocking while the whole thing started by them letting the tank go dry… and on and on. Really tired of playing their games. I think I will just write it up and send it DOJ. Sorry for the long ramble.

    So far the only reply received is from Don Sweet… he advised attending the meeting on the 28th. I’ll be in Salem.

    My grip is not fees in general it’s going from $0 to $1000 in one fell swoop on ambulance services. Why is it all of a sudden necessary to have such a gigantic jump. I can see recovering costs but what, in fact, are these funds planned for? Burn barrels and screens cost money and if you get one you should pay for it.

    Why propose this in the middle of winter when few of the residents are here to provide input. I for one am a permanent resident but have prior plans and will be in Salem on the 28th.

    Where is the information on what costs are incurred providing the services listed on the fee chart. Were the numbers just pulled out of the air? When and where was public notice given regarding these fees and the public meeting to discuss them. This may be all legit but it just doesn’t smell right.

    It seems that a lot of public entities develop an insatiable appetite for “more funding”….. I hope that’s not the case here.

    I think any vendor down there should be coordinated with the operators of the Marina Store.

    I just ran across a map from the US Dept. of the Interior showing property ownership around the BLM dispersed camping area… It lists all of 3r as privately owned all the way to the water.

    We have had Yellow Knife wireless (used to be Community Broadband) since 2007. Works great Netflix doesn’t even reload anymore.

    If there is a compelling reason to create a rule, fine, but not just for the sake of creating a rule. I believe we have plenty for now.
