  1. Thanks for posting this!

  2. Carl Johansen would state that tomorrow June 24 is the last day to send any pro or con letter to MR. Hill.

    It is also noted that in a letter recieved yesterday that the canvasback association is still not in compliance with the request to submit documentation to the DEP in regards to changes they requested to preceed with the Chapter 91 filing. They did not respond to the request made of them on April 1 2011 and were given another two week extension,beyond the 70 day responce time. The penalty phase is still to be mediated,before any chapter 91 license will ever be issued. It also would appear that the legal council that represented the Canvasback association has made some errors in the filing process, that will also slow down the process on behalf of the Homeowners.
