I mentioned in an earlier post that reports were coming in that the Vice President of the Board of the Friends of the San Juans, San Olson, had been involved in a shoreline armoring project on Lopez, via the Mackaye Harbor Water Company. Allegedly, that armoring project had occurred just around the corner and at the same time as a well publicized shoreline restoration event by the Friends.
A concerned citizen thought she would find out more about this armoring project by the Mackaye Harbor Water Company, so she filed an official Public Records Act request with the County for the:
Application(s) for permit/approval of the shoreline armoring performed by Mackaye Harbor Water Co. at Agate Beach on Lopez in 2011-2012.
And the County (Stan Matthews) replied:
There has been no application for permit on [that item], therefore no documents are available.
Well, some type of armoring apparently did occur (pictures to follow in a later post), so how come there are no permit-related documents? Based on her stance in the Charles Dalton case and her deeply held beliefs, you don't suppose Stephanie Buffum might be interested launching her own investigation, do you?
