Mike Albee: Oil companies: Fix road

To the editor:

I live on Moffat County Road 30 (Round Bottom Road). The county road department applied magnesium chloride to the road sometime in late June or early July. Since that time, a new oil or gas well was drilled somewhere up the road. The constant flow of heavy trucks pretty much has eliminated the effectiveness of the dust control. Dust is beginning to return as the trucks drive up and down. With the obscene profits and massive federal subsidies that the oil and gas companies enjoy, I think it is only fair that they contribute just a little bit to the maintenance of our public roads that they depend on for their operations.
