APRIL 7, 2005, PAGE 204 MONTROSE COUNCIL MEETING PAGE 2
1. Drainage ditch. Mark Conlee spoke with Council regarding runoff from his property into a neighbor’s yard. He says Craig Junkins dug a trench and all is well now.
a. Standard procedure would be that the complainant would confirm whether an issue has been resolved.
b. Mark Conlee saying all is well now was far from the truth. Nothing had changed at all.
c. There was no excavation of a ditch in front of the Conlee property. Easily detected with the naked eye
d. The drainage problem was caused by the non conforming in size of the new structures and illegal change of the frontage of Conlee’s property. Easily detected with the naked eye.
May-5-2005 MONTROSE COUNCIL MEETING
2. Councilman Junkins said he talked to Mark Conlee and according to Mr. Conlee his lawyer told him there wasn’t a problem.
a. Jeff Junkins has an existing conflict of interest as he is a fellow employee of Mark and Linda Conlee.
b. Junkins made this statement at a public meeting as if it were a fact, possibly giving the general public attending a false opinion of the law.
c. The lawyer Conlee is speaking of, is not a lawyer at all, he is misrepresenting his brother, Lee County Detective Bob Conlee to be a lawyer. Conlee did not seek legal advice from a licensed attorney until later in the year.
OCTOBER 6, 2005 MONTROSE COUNCIL MEETING
3. He (Mark Conlee) said her fence blew over during a recent storm.
a. Mark Conlee is lying about my curtain blowing over, had that of happened he would have had pictures for evidence
4. Conlee says there is a lot of traffic there.
a. Mark Conlee has no view of my driveway from any spot on his property.
b. He fails to mention there is a 4 way stop on my corner. Everyone stops at that corner from any direction.
c. He is defaming my character to be involved with illegal drug activity to collude with his brother’s, Lee County Detective Bob Conlee’s, defaming statements about my character.
d. The fact that I operated a successful upholstery business does bring clients to my home, however it’s not a lot of traffic.
5. Conlee stated Mark Holland told him he could put a fence on his side of the line he shares with Melody Boatner.
a. By making this statement Conlee indicates Holland has responded to his questions.
b. In my complaints against Conlee’s redevelopment, Holland refused his appointed duty.
c. Holland stated that he had no intention of addressing my concerns about the nuisance drainage caused by the illegal redevelopment.
6. He (Mark Conlee) says he has put weed killer on his side of the fence.
a. Photo evidence proves this is a false statement made by Mark Conlee
7. He states Melody Boatner has put a black curtain on an insecure structure.
a. I did put a privacy curtain up, however it was not insecure. I was well within my rights to install a privacy curtain. I have the right to enjoy my own property. However what I could control on my own property was very little without taking up arms. I have the right to take up arms to defend my property and my person. Being a reasonable person I expected the law to intervene they did, but not upholding the law, what they did was in violation of State and Federal law.
b. Mr. Conlee made a habit of hollering across the yard at me telling me that he was over the setbacks and such. Out of sight, out of mind.
c. He would make sure my customers saw him by walking to the center of his yard by giving them an intense look of disapproval. This made my customers uneasy. His actions were not that of a reasonable normal person.
d. Had Conlee not been allowed to violate the law and change the frontage of his property to be the alley he may not have had the impression that my backyard was his backyard. It is actually his side yard. He committed perjury in his civil case against me stating he did not change the frontage of his property.
e. Conlee has no backyard to speak of as his entire property lot is filled with oversized structures that overfill his allotted space.
8. Conlee says Boatner has broken the law with her wording.
a.This is another false statement made in a public forum for the purpose of giving the community an unfavorable opinion of my character.
b. I was well within my right to post “Do not spray weed poison on my property.
c.The sign was on my property
9. Conlee says the black plastic on the lawn is a nuisance.
a. There is no ordinance stating black plastic is a nuisance, the material was not black plastic it was commercial landscape fabric.
10. The Conlee’s say they have never had words with her and they have done nothing wrong.
a. He has had words with me such as hollering across the yard to inform me that he was over the setbacks.
b.He along with the police chief acting as a witness advised me that he was going to violate the civil court ruling that cited my right to enjoy my property, by physically moving the landscape timbers I had placed on my side of the common boundary to divert the excessive stormwater runoff that he intentionally diverted onto my property.
c. They have violated every law in the book regarding redeveloping a legally nonconforming property.
d. However it is the duty of the City of Montrose to oversee that the redevelopment is compliant to State law.
e. The false statements he made to the public defaming my character were enough to give an unfavorable opinion of the general public, I was unable to wear clothes and was unable to function enough to publicly challenge him on his false statements. Not that I have the duty to hold him accountable to the law, that is the duty of law enforcement and the city.
11. They were attacked with the writing on the curtain and are emotionally upset.
a. This is not even debateable, I had every right to post “do not spray” and to install a privacy curtain
b. At the time there was no city fence ordinance.
c. I was physically and emotionally and financially destroyed by the intentional terrorist acts committed against me by Mark Conlee and his conspirators of local government authorities. Using chemicals as a weapon is according to law an act of terrorism.
d. My right to equal protection of the law was violated by the criminal offenses committed by Conlee and the other officials who acted on his behalf.
e. Evidence shows Conlee was actually advised by Mayor Dinwiddie not to encroach on the property line, to set the fence back from it. Conlee did not take Mayor Dinwiddies advice. Conlee installed his wooden fence with the wrong side out, however no person ever made him do it correct and compliant to State building code.
e. Conspiracy against rights and Deprivation of rights under color of law. Both of which are violations of Federal law.
12. According to Chief of Police Brent Shipman the reason he acted as a witness that Mark Conlee gave me advance verbal notice that he was going to violate the civil court order was because “Mark Conlee told him” that the wooded staubs I had put as markers 36″ away from the common boundary were survey markers.
- a. Police Chief told me this several hours after he acted as a witness for Conlee giving me advanced verbal notice
- b. Who would take a man’s word for something knowing there was a civil dispute between the parties involved
- c. Police Chief also advised me that Mark Conlee told him that I had paid for half of the survey. Complete fabrication, Conlee stated in court that he was going to have a survey done, he never did. I certainly did not pay for half of it.
- d. How ignorant for any reasonable adult to believe a survey marker is made from wood, wood rots. Survey markers are metal and do not rot away.
- e. It is hard to decide if Shipman is fabricating this information about Conlee or if Conlee actually told his this fabricated story. Chief Shipman had issues with being truthful early on in his short career as City of Montrose Police Chief. He was given the option of resigning and the City would give him a favorable recommendation at whatever department hired him next or he would be terminated for ethical violations. He slipped his resignation under the door of City Hall. He was hired as an officer in the Quad Cities, I believe Davenport but not positive. The staubs are 1½” X 8″ commonly used by construction companies.
- f. On one of the occasions when the city charged me with frivolous charges Officer Shipman was in the courtroom and made the statement that “he was wrangled into filing the complaint against me.” The city attorney immediately requested the judge to dismiss the case and the City of Montrose, Ia would pay all court fees. I never had to utter one word.
Oh my this would be similar to the criminal offenses committed by City of Montrose, Ia clerk Celeste Cirinna. City of Montrose. Ia clerk Celeste Cirinna
“When elected officials engage in corruption it erodes public confidence in our democratic system of government,” said Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “Burfoot’s well-publicized criminal exploits have eroded public confidence in how their tax dollars are used and managed, and his selfish actions feed the worst perceptions about public employees, of whom the vast majority perform their duties selflessly and admirably. I want to thank the Assistant United States Attorneys and the FBI for their diligence and dedication in pursuing this important case.”
I had no protection of law enforcement to prevent my neighbor from applying roundup to my property against my wishes, this went on as if it were part of his maintenance routine for his yard, The effects were brutal, my health went from excellent to unable to function within the first years. I suffered through this for over five years, the neighbor did not let up on the unlawful application of the toxic chemicals for five years. My many pleas for law enforcement to protect my right by filing trespassing complaints against this psycho were ignored. This man actually sued me in civil court for “loss of enjoyment of his property”. That case was dismissed with the judge citing my right to enjoy my own property. I felt a sense of relief because my interpretation of that ruling meant for him to stop applying chemicals to my property. I couldn’t have been more wrong, even though there is no doubt in my mind that is what the judge was implying, Within a matter of months this neighbor along with the chief of police (acting as a witness) approached me in my yard to let me know in advance that the neighbor was going to physically invade my property and move some railroad ties that I had put in place to divert the initial problem which was a nuisance drainage issue resulting from the Illegal property redevelopment on the nonconforming lot he purchase from the mayor. The building permits could not have been and still are illegally issued by the city building officials. I following standard procedure requested the building official come to the location to discuss a remedy to the nuisance drainage issue that left my property with an uncontrollable flooding situation. Three of my undeveloped lots lost a value of over $10,000. The person who did show up misrepresenting himself to be an authority for the City building official was this neighbor’s brother, he was the highest ranking member of the County Sheriffs dept. He had no jurisdiction to act as an authority of any kind in the City of Montrose, Iowa, Not to mention that there is no doubt about an existing conflict of interest between this Sheriff’s officer and the neighbor due to the fact that they are blood brothers. With that and after the fact a different County deputy showed up at my house the reason told to me by the deputy that he was sent to my house due to concern by the County Attorney that there may be of a conflict of interest. I thought this may be legitimate and sat down with this officer, showed him all the hard copy evidence of this neighbor and his attorney committing perjury multiple times in the civil case he filed against me. I showed him the court ruling, specifically the citing of my right to enjoy my own property by the judge, This officer, who is not an attorney, explained that since the judge did not specify the neighbor could not apply toxic chemicals then the neighbor was within his rights. This deputy also informed me that “Roundup” is not harmful to humans, he uses it all the time. He completely ignores the laws that it is my property and I have the right to say what can and cannot be done on my property, Roundup when applied correctly may not be directly as extreme as the effect is had on me but, no rules were followed in the application to the chemical to my property. I have never even had poison ivy so for me to have an itchy place on both shin was unusual to say the least. I call BULLSHIT. I SAY THAT NOT ONE OF THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE ACTUALLY SO IGNORANT THAT THEIR ACTIONS CAN JUSTIFY ANYTHING OTHER THAN A CONSPIRACY TO DEPRIVE ME OF MY FEDERAL RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW, THE USE OF THESE CHEMICALS AND THE EFFECT THAT HAD ON MY BODY WERE ALMOST IMMEDIATE, WHEN I TOLD THIS NEIGHBOR THAT I THOUGHT THE CHEMICALS MAY BE CAUSING ADVERSE EFFECTS TO MY HEALTH HE CONTINUE TO APPLY THE CHEMICALS WITHOUT HESITATION, THE CHIEF OF POLICE REFUSED TO GIVE ME AN INCIDENT REPORT IN A TIMELY FASHION (16 months) AND BY THE TIME HE DID I WAS TO THE POINT OF COMPLETELY UNABLE TO FUNCTION, BOTH SHERIFF’S OFFICERS VIOLATING, MISREPRESENTING AND DETERMINING THEIR OWN INTERPRETATION THE COURT RULING, THE COUNTY ATTORNEY DENYING MY RIGHT TO EQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAW AND MY RIGHT TO ENJOY MY OWN PROPERTY. Can only be recognized as a conspiracy against my rights, intent to cause serious injury or death. Conspiracy against rights under color of law. Had I not fled, the only way possible for me to escape the chemicals that were illegally applied on my property offered me three option, Shoot this neighbor dead, which in my opinion is pretty extreme due to the fact that law enforcement get paid to do that job so I would not be pushed to that extreme. Stay in my home and die from chemical poisoning or sell my home, business and property to the first person who would offer me $25,000 for it which would allow me to repay my debts to friends who supported my basic living expenses for the previous 5 years that it was unbearable for me to even wear clothes and cover my final expenses, There was no doubt that I was dying, the question was how long would it take before my suffering would end. Now if any of you can find what in this story is not a violation of Federal law please inform me of what and why. The county attorney being the highest authority of the law in my county clearly has a conflict of interest, the evidence I have supports he conspired to deny me of my rights to equal protection of the law and my right to enjoy my own property. He denied my right to access the court by refusing to file a trespassing complaint against my neighbor, and the brother of his colleague of 17 years. Trespassing is a criminal offense. Every action that was committed against me by this enterprises of self-serving imposters was criminal. I have no authority to prosecute criminal offenses. As the County attorney stated to me. “he will decide who is prosecuted in Lee County, Iowa. His job description clearly states his duty is to prosecute all criminal offenses in his county. I have been patient, more patient that most. This is the type of thing that would cause a citizen to go armed to a city council meeting and just start shooting from one end of the seated members to the other, Then the media not having any information relevant to the shooters situation the headlines in the next day’s news would say something like “Tragedy at City Hall, lone crazed gunman enters city hall and begins random shooting”. I am stating right now that I am of sound mind, The chemical poisoning began in 2005 and continued nonstop until the late summer of 2010. I lost my eyesight to the point I could not read or recognize people in 2007-2012, Only when I was approved for SSID was I able to get the massive cataracts removed from what the dr stated was the worst case of cataracts he had ever seen from a person of my age.The purpose of adding that was that I was completely dependent on the word of my attorney, who simply lied about everything, I hired him to file a complaint against the city he told me he did, he took my money and he never filed a damn complaint against anyone on my behalf. So it is my opinion he also conspired to deprive me of my rights, no attorney could be so incompetent as this man was by accident. I purchased my property in 1995 is was a fixer upper to say the least, But I was well aware of what my ability were and I could do this and it was within my budget, I put much money into my home and workshop, new updated electrical service and service panel, new furnace and hot water heater for house, used furnace for workshop, insulated both structures completely. I have every receipt for everything I bought to renovate this dilapidated property. So when the neighbor claims he put much work into his home, I want him to know that every professional contractor will tell him that renovating an old home compared to new construction is not even comparable when it comes to the time and difficulty. I did not have insurance money from a suspicious fire of the existing home to redevelop my property and build huge nonconforming structures that causes adverse effects to my neighbors property. My credit rating prior to this was 760, I had established a successful upholstery business and satisfied the loan earlier that the 5 years that I took the loan for. I knew when I purchased my legally nonconforming property that there are strict regulations in place for redeveloping my property. You Mr neighbor may not have researched your options that were available in redeveloping your property, until you went to get it recorded on the county plat map and were refused because your new redevelopment was not complaint to State building code and drainage laws. Your buddies did though, the Mayor, the building official did for sure, Witnesses have been and are still willing to testify that in their new construction the building administrator followed the standard procedure as required. The Mayor even though he did ask me at one council meeting, “who knows building codes”, I never got to answer that evening but I can tell the Mayor now that I certainly do, the building officials certainly should or if not the manual at city hall contains all the information on the subject. The Mayor should know the building codes since he built himself a beautiful new home on the riverfront soon after liquidating his properties around town including the one my neighbor purchased from him. So this violation to me, seems similar to what a rape victim must feel. In regard to a statute of limitations running our, anyone who has the balls to use that as an excuse and tell me to my face, I can promise I will try to be calm and patient. Then if we are working together I will have available the next higher level of law that what has happened to me by my local government officials does fall within violations that have no statute of limitation. I have done my homework. I can comprehend the english language. I expect these individuals to be held to highest degree of the law for an unprecedented case of what could easily fall into what is defined by international complaint as crimes against humanity. I am not certain how long this enterprise has been happening but I know of one other person who if there were to be a Federal investigation into her ordeal with the City officials may turn up evidence that, my story is the only on in which chemicals were used with the intent to eliminate me from my property, shows repeated plans and practices were the cause of her leaving the City also. In both cases the personal attack was against single middle-aged women. According to the FBI website they hold public corruption as a high priority. As well they should. There is no case on record in which chemicals weapons were used with intent to cause serious injury and those chemicals being applied to the victims property. For any authority to tell me that this is not in violation of Federal law when there is no other case for reference it is not debatable, a court and a jury are the only authority qualified to make any decisions in regard to this case. This case should be tolled from my initial complaint to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I also recently read a piece regarding for example a County attorney being inaccessable to sue while he is in office so a complaint against him and a statue of limitation does not begin until he is not longer holding that office can anyone offer me more information in regards to this. 💀💀
17. Use Of Biological, Nuclear, Chemical Or Other Weapons Of Mass Destruction (18 U.S.C. 175, 831, 2332c, 2332a)
In recent years, terrorists have used in increasing numbers weapons of mass destruction against civilian populations and non-combatant military personnel. Examples of such terrorist activities include: the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City; the 1995 bombing of the Federal building in Oklahoma City; the 1995 attacks against the Tokyo subway system with poison gas; and the 1996 bombing of United States military housing in Saudi Arabia. Over the past decade, Congress has enacted a number of statutes that provide criminal jurisdiction over the use of biological (§ 175), chemical (§ 2332c), nuclear (§ 831), and other weapons of mass destruction (§ 2332a). All of these statutes cover the use and threatened use of such weapons of mass destruction committed within the United States. In addition, there is extraterritorial jurisdiction whenever the perpetrator of the offense is a national of the United States, or a United States national, including property of the United States Government in most instances, is a victim of the offense.

Did you know that occupying on private land protected by Property rights is considered a trespass? The law will find you guilty and can send you away for a couple of months or pay some hefty fee you’ll probably regret. So to avoid such a debacle, here are some facts about property rights and trespassing
After being told by Mayor Dinwiddie that this was a private issue I went to City Hall. I got copies of the building permits on file for Mark Conlees new garage and his new home. This one for his new home.
Boatner followed standard procedure provided for all citizens to remedy issues caused by a neighbor’s property redevelopment. This property is legally nonconforming. The new neighbor purchased the lot from the Mayor of the City. City building official Mark Holland admitted he did not intend to do his duty and follow standard procedures to address and remedy the situation. Boatner contacted State Representative Phil Wise. Having explained the situation to Mr. Wise he showed the professional courtesy to contact City Hall and have Boatner put on the agenda so she could direct her questions to Council member/Building official Mark Holland in regards to the building permits issued for Mark Conlees property redevelopment. Having Contacted the Mayor and city clerk previously, she was always told to contact the building official. Again she was denied the opportunity to point out the fact that Conlee’s property is a legally nonconforming property and Iowa building code restricts the size of structures to be no large that the existing structures and they must comply with current building codes. These nonconforming structures are much larger that the existing double-wide mobile home and single car garage. Having reviewed the blueprints and following standard procedure Mark Holland would have never legally been able to issue building permits for these nonconforming structures. Holland was absent from this meeting. Based on the record of attendance at these meetings one may consider his absence was intentional. He was aware that Boatner was on the agenda for the purpose of getting answers to her questions concerning how these illegal redevelopment were approved, and the foreseeable nuisance drainage issue caused by the redevelopment had not been addressed and remedied.Conlee was unable to get the illegal redevelopment recorded on the County plat map. That is when he determined I was going to be eliminated. He had to have my property to get his illegal redevelopment recorded on the County plat map. He chose to use toxic chemicals to eliminate me. He applied chemicals to my property as if it were a normal part of his routine yard maintenance. My Federal 1st Amendment right was violated by the chief of police and the County attorney. I was literally begging County attorney Mike Short to protect my rights. I knew the chemicals were causing my death. Many people knew I was dying. They just did not care. They refused to file a trespassing complaint on my behalf. Their acts were blatant and intentional. State Representative Phil Wise retired soon after I contacted him. Since Jerry Kearns has been elected to State Rep. I have contacted him multiple times. He has made no comment. I want to know who he is representing. He is not representing me. He is not representing the State law. That only leave Mark Conlee’s best interest to be what he is representing.
I am not a doctor, but this was more than an allergic reaction CLICK LINK BELOW
Brutal attack by neighbor using acts of terror, chemical weapon (presumably glyphosate roundup by Monsanto. His motive was to eliminate me from my property. He built illegal conforming structures, issue by fraudulent building permits. He changed the frontage of his property to be the city alley, in doing this he altered the direction of the massive roof surfaces of his illegal buildings, raised the alley as if the purpose was to be his private street, truck in massive amount of fill dirt elevating the property in place 7′ or 8′. I followed standard procedure in remedying the nuisance drainage issue. The building officials simply refused to address my concerns. He did continue to issue building permit to his personal friend. The Mayor sold the property to this new neighbor and his buddy, I requested he or the building official to come to the location. The Mayor eventually did, I expected we would walk the boundary line but that did not happen, he got out of his truck stood on the sidewalk and advised me that this was a civil issue. By making that statement he knowingly made a false statement as in public record he states that the signature of the builder alleviates the liability of the City, at that time I submitted the unsigned building permit and the discussion ended, I was never acknowledged as an individual with rights, I have never been interviewed by any authority and my attorney never filed a complaint that he was hired to file against the City for nuisance drainage causing in uncontrollable stormwater runoff diverted directly onto my property by the city. The city held this one man above the law to the degree the other elected and hired officials were themselves committing criminal offenses on behalf of this mans intention of eliminating me from my property. Had he been held to the rule of law from the beginning he would have never been able to redevelop his property. I find it suspicious that the existing home was apparently destroyed by fire. The Mayor, the building official (fire chief), this new neighbor and the building administrators son were the only volunteers on the scene that day, That in itself never happens in this little town. I do not recall being awoke by the fire siren. I woke up due to the noise the son of the fire chief was making connecting the hose to the hydrant on the corner at my house. The other 3 responders did nothing to show an attempt to extinguish a fire, they stood on the sidewalk. After the hose was connected, the younger member was ready to start to spray water and one of the other three still standing on the sidewalk motioned for him to put the hose down. They stood in the same spot on that sidewalk the entire time. After several hours the new neighbor dressed in the hazard protective gear enters the home. Several minutes later he emerges from the home and gives a nod. He had no personal belonging in his hands as you would think someone whose house was burnt would, a picture of something, How is it that on that particular day the Mayor and building administrator (fire chief) just happened not to go to work that day? Based on a statement this new neighbor made to me two weeks earlier and knowing his character there leaves no doubt in my mind this was an arson. Many other neighbors are of the same opinion. I actually called the arson hotline, I suppose if the State investigated the extent would be to call and ask the fire chief about it, I am sure the fire chief had that base covered. The act of arson is a serious criminal act, an investigation is warranted due to the seriousness of this act.
