Horse Creek

Open Letter to the Mayor:
My family has just purchased a home in the Cottonwood Neighborhood and feel hoodwinked... it STINKS! I can't believe that anyone in this neighborhood has lived here longer than the exact turnaround time to resell after realizing the SMELLY problem that's carried on the everyday breezes around here. Please do SOMETHING about the treatment plant's smell - it is TRULY awful. We have a two year old and newborn who, I'm worried, will grow up and reminisce that they're reminded of ''home'' every time they catch a whiff of a backed-up toilet. I really hope someone hears our complaints and tries to resolve the issue quickly. I don't intend to let the matter go unheard for long.
Thanks for reading, Casi Kafka.
