Notice stated no evidence of restoration and set a deadline for the restoration of 6/30/2018. If not completed at this time the matter will be turned over to Select Board for enforcement.

This notice was never sent. Since then there has been a second hydro-seeding showing some evidence of growth. Board will reinspect in the spring.
