Watched it. They are being short-sighted about the North Country Trail request. That is one of the very few things that might bring some tourists to the area, and outlying areas, like Darlington, could really build on its presence. Why doesn’t the county use the hotel tax fees to cover the cost of the GIS information, since it’s tourism related? Much better than a ridiculous ad in the Wall Street Journal. Glad they won’t be charging the parents who dug the drainage ditch in Brush Creek. They are even using it for a drainage pipe.

What iCPR is the same thing as insider trading and should be prohibited. It should and may be illegal and abuse of office for self benefit and profit. As you can see, when the discussion starts to get embarrassing, they immediately want to go from public to private after the meeting. All a bunch of crooks, every one of them.

On another note, how do you surrender a firearm to the Sheriffs Office if you are not permitted to bring it into the courthouse?
