Opinion is not expertise in regard to Shirley's water system

It is unfortunate that a real company did not buy Shirley’s water system for $1, instead of locals who, after registering themselves as a limited company, relish in entitling themselves with important sounding monikers such as “the executive,” “the president,” and the “directors.”

Whatever they call themselves, they are still a bunch of locals who have no expertise in water; systems; or companies.

It is the health department who grants or rejects applications for septic systems, not water companies or committees.

The health department has the expertise in this matter, and, given the opportunity, the health department will decide if a septic system can be legally installed on Lot 113 in Shirley.

It is not a matter the locals can simply, “wrap their heads around;” they have no expertise or professional background; only opinions, hearsay and speculation, the things that are rife in Shirley.
