With regard to the anonymous bogus letter sent to the Copley and Districts Progress Association, outlined in the Chronicles of Copalot, Issue 1, mid November, this response was issued by the Health Department, 27 October:
I refer to your letter where you forwarded to this office a letter of complaint from an anonymous source regarding the sale of fruit and vegetables that have allegedly been grown in raw human effluent.
After discussions with the owners and an inspection of the property I have found the content of the complaint to be unjustified.
After speaking with the owners and having inspected the property I find no Public Health risks associated with the property, should it continue in the state that was explained and inspected.
If any member of the CDPA wish to discuss the matter further, please contact me on the above number.
