Review for Lake Champlain International (LCI), Colchester, VT, USA
It is good to believe that the system is gaining strength to do the right thing for the environment and citizens. James Ehlers, of Lake Champlain International has been instrumental in this. My husband and I live centrally in the residential Village of Lunenburg, RT 2, Main Street. Five years ago, a direct neighbor began a "farming" operation on his half acre property. He had livestock (of all sorts) and did not follow Accepted, Agricultural Practices. The manure and garbage were never removed from pens on his property. After four years of attempting to have this issue enforced, it had begun to feel hopeless. Seven Flags found our file and reported our story. James contacted me immediately after reading the article. He compassionately and graciously offered support, guidance and direction. Yesterday, months later, I attended an enforcement hearing in the Guildhall courthouse. By July, the said property must be excavated, and reseeded. The "farmer" has lost his right to raise any livestock there. THANK-YOU James for all you do!!!!
