In a nutshell, Mark Conlee is a habitual liar. He is obsessed in attempting to make me take down the privacy curtain. He is intent on acquiring my property. I know I was losing my life to these chemicals. At what point does the law determine his actions become intentional to cause me serious injury or death, after my death? Please advise.

The City of Montrose, Iowa and the Lee County Attorney along with a couple Lee County Sheriff’s officers violated my Federal and State Constitutional Rights.  Mark Conlee began unlawfully applying chemicals to my property beginning in early 2005. Mr. Conlee purchased the nonconforming lot in 2002 from Mayor Ron Dinwiddie. Mr. Conlee was issue an incomplete building permit by building official Mark Holland. The position of building official is appointed to a council member by the Mayor. Mayor Dinwiddie makes a conflicting statement about the city having a building official at a city council meeting in Jan. 2005.

Marks intention to unlawfully apply the chemicals to my property was with intent to cause my person and property serious injury.   Local law enforcement denied me equal protection of the law and due process providing me no access to the court.

When Mark Conlee filed a civil complaint against me for putting up a legal privacy curtain. I am aware that he told the general public that he won the case, but he lied.  His case was dismissed. He committed multiple counts of perjury in this 3 day imaginary pursuit of justice. The evidence that is mentioned in the transcripts of this case being submitted by the plaintiff, I never saw. The evidence that I had given my attorney, was never submitted to the court.  The case that I hired an attorney to represent me was as the plaintiff and was against the City of Montrose, Ia. My attorney advised me that we would sue both parties, adding that “the city is where the money is at.” I never found out the truth until the last day of this civil case filed against me by Mark and Linda Conlee. When I was served papers that the Conlee’s were suing me, well, I was quite surprised. There was no person willing to protect my rights or unwilling to commit a crime on behalf of Mark and Linda Conlee. There has to be a reason for the intentional disregard for all laws in this case. The most common reason for treason is greed. As I have said on numerous occasions. My case is about criminal offences committed against me by my local government officials. As this crimes were committed I was advised that I could not file any civil complaints alleging criminal offenses. I have been advised by the County clerk only the County Attorney has that authority. I have been advised this is a private case, but I have no authority to file a criminal complaint against these conspirators. During every criminal act that was committed against me there were two or more individuals involved in the act. The explanation of this judge is based on no factual evidence. The factual evidence was suppressed  by my attorney. This ruling was based on hearsay of what Mark Conlee said and it makes no sense at all. Illegal removal of an existing berm is what several of my experts were prepared to testify to had they been given the opportunity. Or had the written affidavits been submitted to the court. All the stormwater from this long narrow lot of property was diverted onto my property after the illegal property redevelopment was completed. Mark Conlee did illegally change the frontage of his property but swore under oath that he did not. Photo evidence that my attorney suppressed proves that without any doubt. In spite of my witnesses not being questioned at all by my attorney. In spite of my attorney’s opinion that my witnesses were “experts in their own right”, and a “compelling list of witnesses”. The judge still dismiss Mark Conlee’s civil case against me. Had this judge been given the evidence and heard the testimony my witnesses were prepared to testify to. Mark Conlee was not the liable party in the case I hired an attorney for. I do not know the purpose my attorney advised me that we would sue both parties. I do not know why my attorney required $100 on that first day specifically to cover the filing fee for the complaint against the city but never filed the complaint. I do not know why my attorney reassured me throughout this time line that he had filed the complaint against the city when he knew full well he had not. I have an idea as to why he misrepresented this client. Any reasonable person could only come to the conclusion that I have as to why this many government officials would commit criminal offenses on behalf of  Mark Conlee. I have been waiting patiently for the government official with the authority to further investigate what I have no authority to investigate the most reasonable conclusion as to how this happened in the USA. I am still being advised this is a private issue. I have read hard copy evidence that this is what the Federal government considers a high priority. The hard copy evidence is more reasonable than hearsay with no evidence to support this is a private issue. As I have no authority to file a criminal complaint of conspiracy against rights against the City and County. Only prosecutors have the authority to file criminal complaints against anyone as I understand it. I do know for a fact that the liable party in my case initially is the City of Montrose, Iowa. The building official has the duty to review the blueprints. Site layout and drainage are the first steps any reasonable person does when constructing or redeveloping. The building official assures compliance to State laws not the neighbor. This has been a premeditated act since the day Mark Conlee’s redevelopment was rejected from being recorded on the County plat map. This was a premeditated plan to eliminate me from my property. This is a case of violation of my State and Federal Constitutional RIghts and justice will be served.

Conlee vs Boatner finding of facts, page 9

 

Though the City police refused to acknowledge my Constitutional rights, the Civil court did. The judge cited in this page of the court transcripts “my right to use my property as I see fit”. That is a Federal and State Constitutional Right. This right is never to be taken. Conlee committed perjury in nearly every statement he made in the courtroom. My attorney Steve Swan conspired with Conlee to suppress evidence. He never question any of my “compelling list of witnesses nor did he submit photo evidence or the witnesses affidavits to the court. The judge based his ruling on the testimony of Conlee’s witness. The judge misquoted that witness. The judge claims she said the Boatner property always received stormwater runoff from the Conlee property. That is not what she said. My attorney knew the judge misquoted Ms. Adkins as he stated in an email he sent me after the written ruling was sent in the USPS mail. I recognized he misquoted her testimony as soon as I read the court ruling. Relevant is the fact that when I received the written decision I was advised by my attorney that I only had 7 days to file an appeal, he did not want the case. What she actually said was nearly word for word what my witness, Ms Adkins ex-husband was prepared to testify on the stand and did state in his written affidavit. Unfortunately my attorney failed to question my witnesses or submit the affidavits to the court. This can not be dismissed as an incompetent attorney. He would never have passed the bar. Attorney Steve Swan conspired with Conlee to assist him in acquiring my property by the use of chemicals weapons with intent to cause me serious injury. Swan knew this before we went to court. tHad he intended to represent my best interest he would have file the complaint against the City of Montrose as I hired him to do, and he pretended he had up until the final day of the civil case Conlee filed against me. He would have amended the counter complaint against in the Conlee case for trespassing at least.

The following documents are and could have easily been recognized by the judge as Conlee’s admission of his illegal property redevelopment being the cause of the nuisance drainage issue that occurred to my property after the development was completed. Steve Swan also kept these documents suppressed from the court.

6-5-2006 Conlee offer to settle out of court

Lee County Extension agent was prepared to testify that the Iowa drainage law is that a redevelopment cannot produce more stormwater runoff to a neighboring property than before the redevelopment. In this case just the massive roof surfaces of the new structures increased the stormwater runoff to Boatner’s property significantly. Apparently the judge was not given the photo’s of before and after the redevelopment or was not clear about the Iowa stormwater drainage law.

There was no mention of the building permit for the home requiring the signature of the builder not being signed by the builder but was approved by the city building official. Or the fact that public record shows Mayor Dinwiddie acknowledges that fact just prior to me submit the unsigned building permit to him. He took no action to require the building authority to follow through with standard procedure in Conlee’s illegal property redevelopment. Mayor Dinwiddie states on public record that a redevelopment cannot have structures larger than the existing structures. All law were violated by Conlee and he was supported completely by the local authorities despite the state of despair I was suffering as a result of my State and Federal right being violated ongoing for a period of over 5 years.  The building official has the duty to remedy issues between property owners regarding new property redevelopment, he refused. The City police have the duty to protect my rights, in this case they not only allowed my rights to be violated but assisted in the violation of my rights.

6-22-2006 2nd offer by Conlee admitting liability for drainage
6-22-2006 2nd offer by Conlee admitting liability for drainage

By the Judge recognizing my right to do what I want with my property, I find it reasonable to believe that would include my right to determine that no chemicals be unlawfully applied. That was not what happened after this case. The chemicals continued to be applied. Lee County attorney sent Deputy Dave Hunold to my house to investigate a second allegation that “Mark Conlee said” I had given him the finger. I advised Hunold that I wanted to file a trespassing complaint. He advised me after reviewing the court order that the judge did not specify no chemicals so he did not think a trespassing complaint was applicable. I thought to myself are you kidding me? He also advised me that he was only at my house to investigate a complaint made by Mark Conlee that I gave him the finger for the second time. The actions of officer Hunold support a conspiracy to deprive me of my rights under color of law and contempt of court which I have no authority to file a criminal complaint against.

If it is true there is no Federal law against terrorism, as I have been advised then this evidence supports this was an act of Conspiracy against rights. This evidence supports this was an act of deprivation of rights under color of law. Both of which are violations of Federal laws.

sincerely,

Melody Boatner.

Educate yourself on this brutality that took place is southeast Iowa and nobody raised an eyebrow. https://poisonedbymyneighborfromhell.wordpress.com/

 

 

Police Chief Brent Shipman under color of law violates civil court order citing my right to enjoy my own property. NOTE; staubs broken off at ground level obviously pushed away from fence line from Conlee property by Conlee in the middle of the night.


Attorney Steve Swan representing me was confident in my case against the City of Montrose. Expressing that this witness list in itself would be compelling to the court. Stating these witnesses are experts in their own right and completely unrelated to each other. They are actually more related to the City officials by blood and special friendship. Had he submitted any of the affidavits or question the witnesses on the stand in court no doubt this case against the City would have been a slam dunk. Swan lied to me, he never filed a complaint against the CIty of Montrose. Question: Did Steve Swan simply forget that he never actually filed a complaint on my behalf, and told me he did out of error. Or did Steve Swan conspire with Mark Conlee and the CIty of Montrose violating his oath and my Constitutional RIghts to equal protection of the law and Right to enjoy my own property. .
Two out of court settlement offers by the PLAINTIFF to me the DEFENDANT cause of action was LOSS OF ENJOYMENT TO HIS PROPERTY! UNBELIEVABLE PSYCHOPATHIC TRAIT.  This evidence proves Conlee admits to causing the nuisance drainage problem to my property. This evidence was suppressed from the court by my Attorney Steve Swan. QUESTION: was failing to submit this evidence a simple mistake by my Attorney Steve Swan or was Steve Swan conspiring to deprive my Constitutional RIghts to enjoy my own property and equal protection of the law.


This was done on behalf of one man who redeveloped his legally nonconforming property into illegally nonconforming property. The building permits issued are illegal. Applying chemicals to the property of another person is illegal. I repeatedly requested the City and County Attorney to file a complaint on my behalf. I was repeatedly denied my right to file a criminal complaint. The existing conflict of interest was just to extreme for any of these officials to follow the law. This is a conspiracy deprivation of rights under color of law. In order for him to legally plat it on the County map he had to acquire ownership of my property. He used chemical warfare to accomplish his agenda. This was intentional to cause me bodily harm or death, defined by law as attempted murder  Poisoned by my Neighbor from Hell is a partially compiled web site blog. There are many more criminal offenses committed against me that I have yet to post. Any public exposure is welcome. They know I have the evidence or I am sure a defamation of character complaint would have been filed against me. They have file many frivolous complaints on Mark Conlee’s behalf. I admit I did give him the finger. that is not a crime Mr, Short,

Witnesses on Boatner’s behalf

Witnesses on Boatner’s behalf

These individuals were intended to be witnesses in a case that should have been titled Boatner vs. City of Montrose, Ia, that is what Steve Swan was hired to do, that complaint was never filed. Steve Swan assured me that he filed the complaint against the city several times,it was he that advised me that we would sue both parties, the city and Mark Conlee. I was well aware that the liability was that of the city, Steve Swan was aware of that also. I met with him the first time so I could question his knowledge of the law pertaining to property redevelopment, legally nonconforming properties and the duty a city must provide for the residents. He was overpaid according to his own documented statements of evidence.  Steve Swan was intentionally negligent, no attorney could pass the bar showing the skills he showed throughout this untimely process. Lee County Attorney Michael Short sent a deputy to investigate a complaint made by Mark Conlee against me, claiming he was concerned  that there may be a conflict of interest. My witnesses were never interviewed by the City of Montrose Police Dept or Lee County Sheriff’s Dept. Mark Conlee make multiple false police reports against Boatner. Conlee was never concerned of being held accountable by the City of Montrose or Lee County Attorney Michael Short for his many criminal offenses including contempt of court. They fully participated in every action he requested, legal or illegal, nobody showed any concern for the law that they were violating by participating.

Documented evidence proves Lee County Attorney Michael Short advised Boatner that he would need and independent investigation. I am not certain what County Attorney Short meant by “an independent investigation”. Due to the fact that none of my witnesses were ever interviewed in what would be considered a typical investigation. I stated that I wanted an investigation I am still today  patiently waiting to hear from Lee County Attorney Short as the the results of his independent investigation.

My witnesses took the stand to testify on my behalf in a civil suit Mark Conlee filed against me. Conlee vs Boatner EQEQ 004043 cause of action, loss of enjoyment to his property. They were not question by Steve Swan. My first witness was a former tenant of the Conlee property, well aware of the existing berm and the fact that when it rained the berm held back the stormwater from my property causing the front yard of Conlee property to retain a small pond. Swan never asked him any questions. I asked him why he didn’t question that witness about the berm. Steve Swan advised me that the judge uses his own common sense. In the previous criminal cases against me I never had to speak a word as the evidence was undeniable. Had Steve Swan submitted the written affidavits and photo evidence that supported my allegations. Unfortunately Steve Swan was to incompetent to file a complaint against the liable party, the City of Montrose, question the witnesses who should have been viewed as experts in their field, notify me in a timely manner that a decision had been made.

NO ADVERSE IMPACT FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT AND THE COURTS

My initial complaint was in regard to this issue. To end up being poisoned by chemicals illegally applied to my property because the City and County officials had a conflict of interest with this illegally nonconforming owner/builder/redeveloper who was issued illegal building permits is unprecedented. It was the chemicals that nearly cost me my life. I could control the stormwater within my rights to defend my property. This man was angry that the officials could not control what I did legally on my own property. I could not control the chemicals, the fact that this man was allowed to do this knowing it was causing me physical harm and the officials dismissing the act as he had the right. That makes this a Federal Constitutional Rights case. The perps are the CIty and County officials who had the duty to protect my Right to enjoy my own property and my Right to Equal Protection of the Law.

About Lee County Detective Robert (Bob) Conlee

About Lee County Sheriff’s Officer Robert (Bob Conlee)

Bob Conlee has been employee by the Lee County Sheriff’s since graduating high school in early 1970’s. I recall that there was one requirement that Bob could not pass. That was the  height required for all officers to be considered for employment. The sheriff’s dept changed their policy at that time on behalf of Bob Conlee. Bob spent his entire career as a Lee County Law Enforcement Officer beginning as a deputy.

Feb. 3, 2005 Deputy Bob Conlee was promoted to Detective for Lee County Sheriffs Office .  At that time Lee County Detective Bob Conlee used his position to misrepresent his authority to become personally involved in a complaint Boatner had with his brother, Mark Conlee and the City of Montrose, Ia. Detective Bob Conlee Had no jurisdiction in the City of Montrose. If he did there was an existing conflict of interest due to Mark Conlee being his blood brother.

On March 22, 2005  Lee County Detective Bob Conlee arrived at Mark Conlees home in regard to a nuisance drainage issue complaint I had made to Mark Conlee, Mayor Ron Dinwiddie and Council Member/building administrator Mark Holland. The Following day Mark Conlee Hand delivered his response to my complaint. The authority Mark “checked with”  is his brother Lee County Detective  Bob. Lee County Detective Bob Conlee has no jurisdiction or authority in this matter or any other matter involving the City of Montrose.

Soon after I made my initial complaint to Mark Conlee in regards to the nuisance drainage issue caused by his new illegal property redevelopment Lee County Detective Bob Conlee began to defame my character . By knowingly making false statements, fabricating evidence. His intent was to associate me with a family member, who has in the past got caught with marijuana . I had heard several rumors that he had been defaming my character.  Lee County Detective Bob Conlee proved that to me when I heard him ask, over the police radio “are you sure it’s not Melody driving her (family member) truck”?  Following up with “he knew I used to drive my family members truck”.  He stated that as it was a fact.  I and a very credible witness, listed on the “compelling list of witnesses”, both heard this at the same time. Detective Conlee intention was to defame my character on his brother, Mark Conlee’s behalf, to cast an unfavorable opinion of me to the community of Montrose, Ia. 

I have had no interaction with my family member since 1995 and anyone who knows me and my family has that knowledge. Lee County Deputy David Hunold responded to a domestic 911 call at that time.  Lee County Detective Bob Conlee does know that the only interaction I have ever had with the Lee County Iowa drug task force is one time when I was mistaken for my family members girlfriend.  The error was reasonable,  I was mistaken for someone else because my truck is the same color as my family members truck.  However, my truck is a Ford Ranger, my family members is a  Chevy S-10.  I was quickly cleared of any involvement by then deputy Bob Conlee’s superior officers at that time.  The two senior officers were Tom Crew and Buck Jones. Neither of which I had ever met.  I did discover after the fact that they were there to serve a  warrant, issued for someone else. The person was expected to be arrive driving my family members gray truck.  It had nothing to do with Melody Boatner.

Bob Conlee knew or should have known whose name was on that search warrant . Bob Conlee could and did ID me immediately.  Bob Conlee and I had attended the same school from grades 1-12.  Bob was 3 or 4 years older than I. We were raise in the same small town of Montrose, Ia.  A town when back then everyone knew at least everyone elses name.

  I know for a fact that there is no evidence to support Bob Conlee’s allegations. I have never driven my family members truck and I wouldn’t borrow  my family members truck.  Bob Conlee repeatedly made false statements about me, defaming my character. His intent was to try to associate me with illegal drug activity.  Bob Conlee is the criminal in this case, not me!

Could it be possible that Constitutional Rights were violated by local government officials because they were stalling, until I got busted?  Based on fabricated statements made by Lee County Detective Bob Conlee?  Was the entire community misled to believe that I was going to be busted for illegal drug activity? Are they so simple minded that they do not understand our justice system is based on “innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.” Whether I was involved in illegal activity or not, my right to enjoy my own property, and right to equal protection of the law, were violated. My right to due process was violated. An independent investigation is warranted to find if my right to due process was violated.  Was I considered guilty of illegal drug activity based on fabricated evidence perpetrated by Lee County Detective Bob Conlee’s defamation of my character to the general public. Every City of Montrose and Lee County government official who voiced an opinion on Mark Conlee’s behalf by defaming my character are guilty of CONSPIRACY DEPRIVATION OF RIGHTS UNDER COLOR OF LAW and Terrorist acts using chemical weapons with intent to cause serious injury. Because no one with authority protected my rights. They participated in violating my rights on Mark Conlee’s behalf. 

At first it was kind of humorous that Lee County Detective Bob Conlee had me under surveillance and making false statements that I was going to be busted for dope. Simply because it was such an extreme conflicting statement to the fact that I had no interaction with my brother since 1995.  But it turned into psychopathic stalking.  He had me under surveillance constantly.  He was so desperate to follow through with his false statements he followed me on several occasions and knowingly made false statements about those incidents. He has never seen me driving my family members truck, or anything else that associates me with illegal activity of any kind.  I confided to friends at that time that I believed if he would have caught me on a gravel road he would have shot me.

It was also during this time that Lee County Sheriff’s Deputy Dave Hunold pulled over a mutual friend of ours, witness, Hunold pulled him over to warn him that the house he just left, (my house) was going to get busted.  I dismissed his allegations due to the fact that Hunold is not on the Drug Task Force, and it is not general procedure for deputy officers  to have knowledge of this type of information. If they do I know of no other case where deputies spread the word to the general public. I assumed Deputy Hunold had mistaken my house for one the next block down that had gotten busted. However Bob and Mark Conlee were spewing these lies to the general public with no regard to implicating themselves in unethical and criminal behavior, or anyone else for that matter.Lee County Detective Bob Conlee initiated these falsehoods on his brother’s behalf, I assume Bob was telling Mark not to worry about my nuisance drainage, illegal non conforming property complaint.  Probably assuring Mark that he could acquire my property through an asset forfeiture sale when I got busted. Mark was repeating Bobs lies to City of Montrose Chief of Police Brent Shipman, all other local government officials, and to the general public. The evidence  will prove Bob and Mark Conlee to be psychopathic pathological liars. 

Lee County Detective Bob Conlee was obsessed with proving his falsehoods to be true. He had me under surveillance 24-7 the entire time he  had the position titled Lee County Criminal Investigator.  There were very few occasions I left my house. One of those times I needed to modify a metal chair frame I was working on. I took the frame to a friends shop to use his chop saw. My friend was at his desk doing paper work, he walked back to where I was and asked what my street address was. I told him. He responded that he had just heard my address mentioned on the police scanner. A few minutes later Bob Conlee came full throttle through the door, he walked back to where I was working, turned around and walked back out the door. He never spoke a word. Apparently he thought he caught me in the middle of some type of illegal activity. When he got back in his unmarked vehicle he again knowingly made a false statement over the police scanner. He stated that my truck was parked in a hidden position between 2 vehicles. The fact is that I had parked next to the owner of the business another individual arrived after I had and parked on the other side of my truck. My truck was between two vehicles but only because the vehicles were parked according to time of arrival taking the next available parking spot. Lee County Detective Bob Conlee knowingly made a false statement that I was hiding my truck. His intent was to defame my character had become criminal harassment by this time. But Lee County Attorney Mike Short has been working side by side with him 18 years, conflict of interest allows for no  accountability for any of the many criminal offenses committed against me. Detective Bob Conlee has proven himself to be a pathological liar. Bob Conlee has proven himself to be a pathological stalker. The effect the chemicals Mark Conlee unlawfully applied to my property to my skin were severe. Within a year I was physically unable to wear clothes. I lost my eyesight. I had no quality of life and was completely unable to function.

Another sequence of events that I find suspicious that Bob attempted to “set me up in a drug bust”. I had been living at my property for 15 years. The next block down Rick Hardman had been living for as long as I had been there. I think. We had never had a conversation of any kind, I don’t recall ever speaking to each other. One afternoon I was at the stop sign in front of his house and Rick approached me. He asked me if I wanted to smoke a joint, I politely told him that I did not smoke weed, He proceeded to tell me who was selling dope in town, bla,bla,bla. I went on about my business. Some time later, out of the blue. Rick Hardman knocked on my door. Rick told me that he had some important information that he wanted to give my family member. Rick presented me with an affidavit from the Thomas Greer case. The affidavit was signed by a person unknown to me and was dated years earlier. The content implicated Lee County Attorney being involved with illegal drug activity. The affidavit stated that the signer had worked, delivering cocaine for Lee County Attorney Michael Short. It claimed Michael Short had promised that if the signer ever got caught by law enforcement, Short would step up and use his influence to get any charges dismissed and he would protect this guy from being prosecuted. I told Mr. Hardman that my family member and I had not communicated for years but I would go so far as dial the phone for him if he wanted to talk to my family member. I dialed the number and handed the phone to Rick. I overheard the conversation,  Rick confirmed that he would meet my brother and Linger-Longer rest area, for the purpose of  giving my family member the information for whatever reason . To my knowledge the meeting did occur. Rick left me a copy of the affidavit, which I still have.

It is reasonable that Bob Conlee was behind Rick Hardman contacting me on these two occasions. There is no other reason after 15 years of being nearby neighbors Rick Hardman would seek me out in regards to illegal drugs. Bob was desperate to make me into the person he had falsely claimed I was, Bob’s commitment to his brother is honorable, his tactics were completely illegal, immoral and violated my US Constitutional Rights, including my right to due process.

Bob Conlee retired from the Lee County Sheriff’s Dept. in the spring of 2007. I suspect Bob was given an option. He could choose to retire or be terminated due to his corrupt, criminal, and unethical actions against me personally. Bob Conlee conspired with Mark Conlee to deprive me of my U.S. Constitutional Right to enjoy my own property. It is unreasonable to believe that Bob Conlee chose to retire in spring of 2007,   after only 2 years getting promoted to Criminal Investigator. I recall an article in the local newspaper in which Bob stated that he did not need the insurance due to his wife’s coverage. Bob’s age at retirement was, I believe, in his early 50’s. With 17 years of service, Bob Conlee’s salary was $39,949.00 when he retired in 2007. I was told he took a job changing tires at a business in Donnellson soon after he retired, I do not know if this is true. Bob took a full time job as bus driver for Central Lee Community School District, to my knowledge he is still employed at that job. The average pay for a school bus driver in Iowa is $26,000. That in itself doesn’t seem reasonable. Does a reasonable person retire early, than take a full time job that pays significantly less money than his previous job. Not to mention the notoriety and influential power behind holding the top law enforcement position in Lee County, Ia. I researched some interesting financial information that is public record. On September 23, 2009 Robert Conlee’s property was repossessed. A FORECLOSURE AGAINST Bob Conlee FOR $88,063.39, PLUS INT AT 7.68% PER ANNAM ON PRINCIPAL OF $85,619.06 FROM 8/2/2012 PLUS COSTS, ATTORNEY FEES, ABSTRACTING FEES IN THE AMOUNT OF $1,801.00 was settled on August 3, 2012. A reasonable person does not retire from his career early, only to have his property repossessed. I am not buying that story for a minute. I find it much more reasonable to believe that Lee County Investigator Robert (Bob) Conlee chose to take a forced resignation rather than be terminated from his job as Lee County Investigator. A Federal investigation is warranted to uncover the truth and hold those who conspired to cover his behavior accountable for conspiracy deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law.

He knowingly made false statements, defamation of character. He violated my Constitutional Right to enjoy my property under color of law. Bob Conlee misrepresented himself as having the authority of City of Montrose Building administrator when he had no jurisdiction to act as any type of authority in the City of Montrose. Had he had any authority he still would have been in violation of rules of ethics due to conflict of interest as Mark Conlee is his blood brother. Bob Conlees criminal acts against me were malicious with intent to harass, cause me financial and emotional harm. Bob Conlees behavior is not that of a reasonable person in a high ranking position of law enforcement would do. Bob Conlee conspired to deprive me of my US and State Constitutional Right to enjoy my own property and equal protection of the law.

ICMA’s Code of Ethics, most recently amended by the membership in April 2015 to reflect changes in the profession, includes Guidelines to assist members in applying the principles outlined in the Code. The Guidelines were adopted by the ICMA Executive Board in 1972 and most recently revised in June 2015.
