The Whitefield Selectmen have written a letter to DEP Commissioner Patricia Aho urging a speedy and proper conclusion of the Clary Lake water level petition. I got an advance copy of it which was to be approved and signed at tonight’s regularly scheduled meeting of the Whitefield Board of Selectmen (letter updated 29 May 2013):
It’s a good letter. It lets the Department know, in case there was any doubt, that the town of Whitefield is following this issue and is interested in the outcome. The message is clear: follow the letter of the law, but please follow it faster.
Copies of the letter will be sent to Senator Christopher Johnson, Representative Deborah Sanderson, the Town of Jefferson, Pleasant Pond Mill LLC, and myself. It is reassuring to see the Whitefield Selectmen taking an active interest in and speaking out publicly in support of the Clary Lake water level petition.
