Why I do not exist
To the Editor:
Because of a plumbing violation; I do not exist.
DEP has called my home a "recreational" vehicle so that the wind developers can erect a 500-foot turbine in my back yard.
Definition of a recreational vehicle is it can be towed down a highway. My home cannot move down a highway. It has a 17-foot pitched roof and a 20x30 foot, insulated, heated addition attached to it.
We live there. We haul water and walk to the "pit privy." We have solar panels for electricity and wood for heat.
If any folks in Maine use an outhouse, "pit privy" and you do not have an HHE-200, you do not exist. Do not pay taxes on your seasonal residence. It is unprotected.
