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.
warning to City of Montrose unlawful application of toxic chemicals
3-24-2007 EPA warning City of Montrose illegal applied chemicals that directly feed into the Mississippi River.
This is the warning the EPA sent to the City. It states the process that the City failed to do in order to lawfully spray chemicals. If these chemicals were not harmful to humans, why would these laws be needed? The City is required to have a certified applicator, which they did not. This was done soon after Mark Conlee (suspiciously) took his elected seat as a council member. There has never been any chemicals sprayed on my property by anyone until Mark Conlee took the unlawful liberty to trespass on my property with toxic chemicals. After the City received this warning Mark Conlee continued to apply chemicals to my property as part of his yard maintenance routine, he went back to his original plan of only applying it to my property along our common boundary line. An investigation would expose that it was not the Street Dept, director Craig Junkins who actually applied the chemicals in the point source of the drainage ditch that flows to the backwater slough and into the Mississippi River. The chemicals were to precisely applied. Clearly only where the City easement is on my property, not any on Mr. Conlee’s easement. Mr Junkins would not have been so meticulous, he would have applied it the entire length of the Cities easement. Mr Conlee was obsessed with finding me guilty of violating a City ordinance. This act was another attempt to cite me for nuisance weeds. He personally came home from work during his lunch hour, (he never comes home for lunch) he personally drove directly to the area in the City’s drainage ditch and took photographs of the weeds on my side of the gully as well as the weeds on the Cities side of the gully. The photos only proved to be evidence that illegal chemicals had been directly applied to the headwaters of Jack Creek, these chemicals killed all living plants on my property but washed downstream through the City culvert and across the properties of the 2 downstream neighbors. It killed all living plants and probably animals on their properties also. It was the neighbor whose property was the farthest downstream who called and reported the incident to the EPA. The letter is addressed to Mr. Junkins only because he was the head of the street dept. at this time. Mr. Conlee being a City council member has no authority to do anything on behalf of the City except attend council meetings and vote. The Cities insurance does not cover him to be acting as an employee of the street dept. By this time due to the prior year of Mr Conlee illegally applying toxic chemicals to my property I had developed a skin condition so severe that it was unbearable to wear cloths, I was wearing my bathrobe when the field investigator came to the location and took soil samples and a written statement from the 2 other neighbors whose property was effected and myself. · Updated 4 minutes ago
I hired Steve Swan to sue the City of Montrose in July 2005. This is not typical for a neighbor to have to do, the building authority has the duty to address residents concerns regarding nuisance drainage issues caused by new property redevelopment. He sent this letter to Conlee that afternoon. He lied by continuing to claim he filed a complaint against the City of Montrose. He stated that we would sue both parties, the City is where the money is at. Based on the fact that the building permits are illegal, the redevelopment of the legally non conforming property is illegal I knew full well who the liable party was. So what does his failure to represent my best interests fall in the justice system. An investigation would be required to find that evidence. The evidence supports the least of his immoral, unethical behavior is legal malpractice. This could be due to his physical disabilities, This man is morbidly obese. For him to actually get to the courthouse to file a complaint on behalf of a client has to be extremely difficult for him. He had to set on four chairs in the courtroom. I filed a complaint but of course the sided with Swan, We agreed to barter services for this case, after which he sent me a bill for $4000.00. I never was billed after I filed the complaint. Is it not the his responsibility to present evidence and question witnesses? He never did that either. I believe the evidence supports his actions are within that of a co-conspirator.

Suppressed and previously withheld from the civil case Conlee vs Boatner EQEQ
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.
Conspiracy Deprivation of Rights under Color of Law.
It has already been established that building official Mark Holland refused his duty to address Boatners concerns, Boatner witnessed Lee County Detective Bob Conlee (brother of Mark Conlee) assisting Mark with a tape measure on 3-22-2005. Bob Conlee has no authority to act as an official of any kind in Montrose, he has no jurisdiction and there is an obvious conflict of interest.
In regards to Mark Conlee stating that he would be at the next Council meeting to request a ditch be dug, it has already been established that Boatner hand dug the City ditches in 1995 when she purchased the property.
