We received a letter from the city of Newton.

They have a new hotline now to report our neighbors if they dump anything into storm drains, ditches, streams or creek, or change oil, antifreeze, rinse paint brushes, wash vehicles and allow it to drain to the curb or storm drain, pollute water, sweep grass clippings or leaves into the street and so forth.

The reason I am complaining is we pay taxes and own our home and don’t do these things.

We pay our taxes! We feel it is not proper like we’re spies.

Thank you.
