New Business- Ms. Karen Karlberg passes out copies of a letter that she has drafted, she asks ZBA members present to please read and review the letter (letter attached). Ms. Karlberg briefly explains that the letter references the Conboy property and all the recent activity that has taken place there.  Ms. Karlberg advises that this property has become a real eyesore and that, she further explains that not only is the property being logged, she explains that the owner is also  bringing in fill  that could quite possibly be contaminated. Mr. Wilkinson states that although the property may be a bit unsightly, he is not sure what, if any, bylaw is actually being violated. Ms. Deacon agrees, asking Ms. Karlberg  if she could tell them specifically what section of the bylaw is being violated  so that they can be aware of it and review it at their convenience.   Ms. Karlberg states that this has completely changed the whole neighborhood, as well as brought down their property values.  At this time, Mr. Lombard states that he will give this matter his immediate attention and he confirms that he will call the building inspector to set up a time when they can sit down and discuss this very important matter further. Mr. Lombard states that he will report his findings.
