Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

To the Belle Plaine Mayor & City Council

As you may know, a murder suspect tried to beak into the apartment building on Elk Street to get to someone who lived there.

Our property line is only about 150 feet from the building. We have no fence to separate us from the apartment building. The builder said he would put up a fence after it was built, but later changed his mind.

This is the second time cops have been called to the place in less than 6 months.

They are starting to build another apartment building next to it, so we will have twice the problems.

Do you know how it feels to have a suspected murderer 150 feet from you? We tried to tell you that it was too close to all of us, but you just brushed us off.

You guys really messed up bit this time and now we are all paying the price. Congratulations!!!

Ken & Barb Retzer
