Can we get an explanation from the Townsend Board of Selectmen why we residents are required to pay the outrageous fee of $20 to burn OUR own debris on OUR own property when most towns I am familiar with have no fee? How do you expect people on limited incomes to keep their land looking decent and free of potential fire hazards? Why should any of us be motivated to keep our property clean or not to burn illegally? Can there be some connection here to keep the peace in the long history of dissension among town departments that we have consistently seen in town in the 36 years I have lived here?
