Theft, threats and attempted intimidation have now become part of the Powder Mountain town saga. As reported on the front page of Saturday's Standard Examiner, it appears that some of those who support the Powder Mountain town incorporation have continued to break the law in an attempt to discourage those that oppose the formation of a town without the consent of the residents.Problems Regarding Powder Mountain Town Escalate
It is also a fact that these "anonymous" perpetrators have left behind significant evidence including electronic trails that provide valuable information for law enforcement officials.
This is a contentious issue, those citizens opposed to the town incorporation are trying to recover the basic civil rights for the
affected homeowners that were ignored by the onerous
legislative bill HB466. The affected homeowners did not have a voice in the formation of the town, their forced inclusion into the town boundaries, or a vote on the initial town officers.
One would think that every American that values the right
of equal protection under the law would be opposed to any
action by the Powder Mountain owners that denies those rights.
