The ruling maintains that the town of German Flatts’ denial for a floodplain Development Permit. As a result the Jaquish’s must close down and vacate their property, as well as the residents within by May 31st, 2017.

According to German Flatts Supervisor, Frank Spatto, the The “floodway” is defined by law as the most dangerous area, where all development is generally prohibited. Spatto says, “The Town Board is encouraged by the Judge’s ruling again upholding our denial of the Jaquishs’ floodplain Development Permit.  We now look forward to the Jaquishs’ compliance with the Judge’s order to close the Creekside Park and move the residents of the Park out of harm’s way by May 31, and before another flood should occur.  We all remember the storm of 2013 when residents of the Park were evacuated to safety by Town personnel and equipment.”
