Category: Letter from Lee County Ext. Agent to Mayor Dinwiddie
Building official Mark Holland was intentionally neglecting his duty to address my concerns regarding the nuisance drainage. The opinion of the County FEMA officer was not an option because of an existing conflict of interest, he is the husband of City clerk Celeste Cirinna. I was referred to Lee County Extension Agent Bob Dodds for an opinion in regards to the nuisance drainage issue. Though he had no authority he did have the professional courtesy to stop by the location. He took some photos and wrote a letter to Mayor Dinwiddie on my behalf. The letter also included a copy of Iowa Stormwater drainage laws. According to Dodds a property redevelopment cannot divert more stormwater to neighboring property than before the redevelopment. The photo evidence clearly shows the diversion of stormwater to Boatner’s property significantly more base on the oversized roof surfaces.
“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.”
Due to the fact that after multiple requests from Boatner for the building administrator Mark Holland to come to the location and address her concerns, he refused. A witness was prepared to testify that she asked Holland if he was going to go to the location and address Boatner’s concerns. He replied that he had no intention of going to Boatner’s to address her concerns. Knowing that the expert on this situation would be the local FEMA director Steve Cirinna. Knowing that a conflict of interest exists due to the fact the he is the husband of the city clerk Celeste Cirinna his opinion was not an option. Through a referral from the internet source Boatner contacted Lee County Extension Agent Robert Dodds for an opinion regarding the nuisance drainage issue. Mr. Dodds did come to the location as a professional courtesy. Mr Dodds noticed some discrepancies that I had not, I only noticed that the building permit was not signed by the builder as required by State of Iowa law. The following letter was written to me advising me of his opinion to some questions I had asked him. A copy was also sent to Mayor Dinwiddie along with a copy of the State drainage laws. This letter was never discussed privately with Boatner or at a public council meeting. This letter was not submitted as ongoing business to the next elected administration of Mayor Tony Sciumbato . This expert’s opinion was ignored in this case, yet there are numerous instances unrelated to Conlee-Boatner nuisance drainage issue in which public record shows Mr. Dodds opinion was requested and respected. At this point any reasonable person would recognize a conspiracy to deprive me of my Federal Constitutional Right to Equal Protection of the Law and my Right to Enjoy my own Property at the least of the issues in this case.
