To Canton City Council:

My name is Mark Morganfield and my wife Barbara and I are residents of Van Zandt County.

We have been tax-paying residents of Van Zandt County for almost 10 years, and we oppose the creation of the Saline Creek Lake for personal reasons.  Specifically, we oppose the City of Canton’s application to acquire the water rights to Saline Creek.  The impacted area would immediately place a cloud over the effected properties and prohibit, or at a minimum, greatly diminish their value and marketability.   This will have a deleterious effect on our friends and neighbors, many of whose families have earned their living off these properties for generations.
