  3. Mr. DeFelice asked Doug to call the applicant and let them know when a Public Hearing is scheduled.
  4. Doug investigated the complaint from Walt Hardbarger. He hasn’t spoken to Mr. Hardbarger yet, but he said it looks like Sam’s Excavating did a great job of grading the property and it doesn’t appear that it will cause the flow of water to change.
