The DEP responded in record time to Pleasant Pond Mill LLC’s motion to withdraw, reconsider, or elucidate sent to the Service List earlier this morning. I expected a quick response, but I didn’t expect them to dismiss it so perfunctorily and with so little fanfare. They did not bother with a procedural order, they simply sent this short email:
Dear Mr. Kelley,
Thank you for your submittal, dated January 2, 2014 containing a Motion for Withdrawal/Reconsideration/
Division of Land Resource Regulation
Maine Department of Environmental Protection
It is pretty clear to me that the Department of Environmental Protection is tired of Mr. Kelley’s quasi-legal maneuvering and have had enough. One has to wonder whether Mr. Kelley has gotten the message.
