To the editor,
I recently visited the Willow Bay Recreation Area and was appalled with what I saw.
The current lessee has turned it into his own personal junkyard. There were piles of old tires, trailers full of junk, metal, broken down boats and miscellaneous junk; all within view of the campground and even worse on public land on the banks of the American Falls Reservoir.
This is a disgrace to the City of American Falls!
I have made calls to the mayor, city council members and the Bureau of Reclamation.
Something needs to be done and soon. As a former lessee I have such fond memories of my tenure there and was heartbroken with what I saw.
