Columbia Association dodges deer questions [Letter]

Early yesterday morning, my husband came within inches of hitting a large, male deer on Grey Rock Drive in Columbia. As we have been residents of Columba and have been paying taxes to the Columbia Association for over 25 years, one would hope that this association would assist us in deer-related problems. These problems range from costly and dangerous automobile accidents to garden and health-related problems (i.e., Lyme disease. which can be contracted through deer ticks).

On Oct. 18, the Columbia Association sponsored an event called Columbia Speaks, CA Listens. Individuals who attended this meeting to voice concerns related to deer issues were shut down at the door. No one with posters regarding deer problems were allowed entrance. Any deer-related problems were passed on to the Howard County Recreation and Parks Department. The issue of deer problems was not to be voiced at this meeting.

My question is this: If we pay taxes to the Columbia Association each year, why can't CA become involved with working out a solution to this ongoing problem?

It seems to me that the meeting on Oct. 18 should have been named: Columbia Speaks, CA Listens to what it Wants to Hear. Disappointingly, this meeting demonstrated a classic "pass-the-buck" routine.
