Eldred BOS votes to request Attorney General and county DA investigate if wrongdoing in 2014 water extraction amendment, planners to discuss filing disciplinary complaint against landowner attorney

This is an abbreviated report due to time constraints.  At last night's Eldred Township BOS meeting, the supervisors voted 2-0-1 to send letters to the State Attorney General and Monroe County District Attorney, requesting them to investigate whether there was wrongdoing in the passage of the 2014 Eldred Township water extraction amendment.  Also, to request the Eldred Planning Commission to consider recommending that a disciplinary board complaint be filed to determine if there was any unethical conduct on the part of landowner attorney James "Jimmy" Wimmer, Esquire, as relates to the same subject.

Update 9/16: A letter from landowner attorney Marc Wolfe was read, stating that while not required to do so, the last two Nestle wells that Gower had requested remain open will be decommissioned per township request.

Due to the the 2nd Wednesday (BOS meeting) and 3rd Thursday being on adjacent days this month, the Eldred Planners will meet tonight at 7pm.  Planning Commission Chairman Robert Boileau stated that the meeting would be "juicy", due to another item already on the agenda.  This blogger is unable to attend due to a conflict.
