She said that she believed part of the assessment would be used to <br />pay for earlier studies, which she considered unfair and unreasonable. <br /> <br />Bob Evans, 2095 labona Drive, yielded to the next speaker. <br /> <br />Terry Harper, 1737 Parnell Drive, declined the opportunity to speak. <br /> <br />Craig Bi@rsdorff, 126 Mayfair, Qug~t;on~d th~ ~~;~t~nce of a ~roundwater <br />p~oblem_ <br /> <br />Larry Bradley, 651 Bushnell lane, considered existing groundwater study <br />rQsults inconclusive and suggested that a new study be conducted to determine <br />whether a problem exists.
