ConsCom closes book on library complaint

The Gleason Public Library and the conservation commission can finally relax about the acceptability of drainage provisions for the redesigned library site. The commission had received complaints about water from a detention basin from neighbor Kenneth Bedrosian last year and had been monitoring the situation through the winter and the spring thaw.

In the meantime, the commission office received notification from the Army Corps of Engineers that they had been asked to review the project for possible violation of federal regulations. On April 29, New England district chief of the permits and enforcement section, Karen Kirk Adams, joined conservation administrator Sylvia Willard and library trustees Mary Cheever and Brooke Cragan in an inspection. After walking the property and studying the specifications and Order of Conditions, Adams declared the site to be within the Corps’ requirements and closed the file.
