Velma to restrict dump access

VELMA — The Velma Town Council has decided to clamp down on access to the town’s dump north of town.

Velma Mayor Shawn Enloe said commercial enterprises are using the site to deposit construction project refuse, which oftens has nails and other hazards.

Velma will keep the gate to the site locked during business hours and open it only for residents, Enloe said.

Residents who want access to the site on weekends will be given a telephone number to call, he said.

The spot, about a quarter-mile north of town, is intended as a collection spot for residents to deposit brush and limbs that later are burned under controlled conditions. Before now, the site was accessible on a 24-hour basis.

Commercial businesses can still use the site but will be charged a fee, Enloe said.
