Boards Agent Howard Fife did another site visit at 88 Sturbridge Rd., DEP File #184-182 and found that the grass is not sufficiently grown to provide erosion control to the wetlands so we are still unable to grant a Certificate of Compliance.

7:25 p.m.  Kevin Knight of 29 Bennett Rd. reported that his neighbor Normand Butler is still cutting trees within 100’ of the wetlands (as reported on April 22, 2008).  Boards Agent Howard Fife is to do another site visit.
