CJERP lack of transparency troubling - followup letter to CJERP

After last night's meeting at the Eldred Township Community Center, I was approached by several residents, some of whom attended the September 2015 CJERP meeting.  I was shocked to learn that some of those who attended who attended in September felt that they were not welcome, and sensed a reluctance to have their voices heard or questions answered.  These residents are from Eldred Township, and attended in an effort to obtain information about the process that was used to prepare the ordinances passed on May 1, 2014, including the amendment to the definition of water extraction.

As a result of these discussions, I wrote Matt Neeb/CJERP a followup to the letter I had sent on December 17.  The letter is here (click).

There are four attachments to the letter, which are (click to see them):

  1. Fax from {redacted Eldred Twp resident} to CJERP representative M. Neeb dated Nov 1, 2015
  2. Current ordinance definitions of three terms in each of the CJERP townships, including water extraction
  3. December 7, 2015 letter from CJERP Solicitor Fareri to "whom it may concern"
  4. December 17, 2015 letter from D. Moore to M. Neeb with several questions about the process leading up to and the adoption of the ordinances and amendments on May 1, 2014
