Lettre au responsable d’RRR

Letter to the Head of RRR

Monsieur le Maire
Hôtel de Ville
Rue des Acacias
15032 Verneuil/Avre
Le 25 avril 2001
Zone Industrielle de Bidonville
15002 Granbourg


Je vous remercie de votre lettre au sujet de l’environnement. Je suis d’accord qu’il est important que nous protégions notre monde, et je crois qu’il faut que nous prenions des mesures à l’échelon local pour protéger la planète.

Auriez-vous l’obligeance de m’envoyer des détails de vos projets qui concernent le recyclage? En plus, j’aimerais bien savoir combien la collecte des déchets coûterait.

À mon avis, il y aura des groupes qui s’opposeront à vos projets – par exemple, les gens qui habitent à Verneuil-sur-Avre et les environs. Il est possible qu’ils ne veuillent pas que vous établissiez cette déchetterie là, parce qu’elle pourrait déranger leur paix. En plus, je pense que certains gens seront trop paresseux pour conformer à vos idées.

Je vous invite d’assister à une réunion le 5 mai, à 14h30, pour débattre votre proposition. Tous les représentants des conseils y seront, et vous pourrez exprimer votre point de vue.

Je vous remercie de votre correspondance, et j’espère que nous pourrions atteindre un accord qui est convenable pour chacun concerné.

Veuillez, Monsieur, accepter l’expression de mes sentiments distingués,

Monsieur le Maire [^]

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your letter on the subject of the environment. I agree that it is important that we protect our world, and I believe that it is necessary that we take measures at a local level to protect our planet.

Would you kindly send me the details of your recycling projects? Furthermore, I would very much like to know how much the waste collection would cost.

In my opinion, there will be groups of people who will oppose your projects – for example, the inhabitants of Verneuil-sur-Avre and the surrounding areas. It is possible that they will not want you to install your waste recycling centre there, because it could disrupt their peace. Also, I think that certain people will be too lazy to conform to your ideas.

I invite you to attend a meeting on May 5th, at 14:30, to debate your proposition. All the representatives of the various councils will be there, and you could express your point of view.

Thank you for your postal correspondance, and I hope that we can reach an agreement that is convenient for all concerned.

Yours sincerely,

The Mayor of Verneuil-sur-Avre [^]
