Zoning dispute

While Boisen and Lansing were in agreement over the needs of the community when it came to the recent flooding, they differed over a recent zoning matter involving smells coming from a town dwelling.

Boisen said she had asked Lansing to conduct a dye test, which had not been completed.

"If I ask that you do a dye test, then it is your responsibility to me and to this town that you do the test when you are directed," Boisen said. "I hope that the board agrees that when I or the board request a test to be done, that it is done."

Town councilman James LaForest agreed.

"Why don't we just solve this problem finally and run the dye test," he said.

Boisen said the landowners had asked that the town no longer come onto the property after previous inspections.

"If this is a health issue, then the town can move any way that they need to," councilman Harold MacDougal said.

"If it is a public health issue, then you can go on the property," LaForest said. "If the owner has a problem, so be it."

Lansing said that he felt that the problem was resolved without the need for a dye test, but said that he would do what the board requested.
