Mary vandenBerg reports

John Madeiros called and was angry that his Notice of Intent sent on June 28, 2006 had not been scheduled for a Public Hearing. Due to the fact that the postman thought the Town Hall was closed the entire week, due to Independence Day, the Certified package containing the Notice of Intent was finally delivered on 7-10-2006 at 1:00 p.m. Mr. Madeiros’s Public Hearing is scheduled for 7-25-2006 at 8:15 p.m.

Mr. LaMountain did not attend the scheduled DEP site visit on July 7, 2007. Mr. McKenna reported to have observed from Mashapaug Rd. the LaMountain property. Mr. McKenna said he would write an Enforcement Order. Because Mr. LaMountain continues to burn, Mary understands that the Fire Dept. is to pursue the burning problem in court.

7:45 p.m. Tim Jilrein of Miller Rd. having already seen Jack Keogh, Zoning Enforcement Officer, spoke of his concerns that the altering of his neighbor’s property by bulldozer is causing after a rain, mud to pour onto his property as shown on the photos submitted. We suggested that he speak to his neighbor, to the Board of Health who gave septic approval, and then to his lawyer and we would do a site visit.

8:05 p.m. Procedure Sheet #2006-1094 issued to Richard F. Wilmarth of 7 Lakeridge Dr., Map R-04-A-25 to replace a collapsed retaining wall damaged by rain erosion with interlocking Versa Lok blocks.
