Rob Kessler - R. Kessler & Associates

- Rob is a local developer working on "Trailside" and he has kind of hit a snag. He is trying to build a 9 lot subdivision. Up to this point he's been very cooperative with the town but they want him to do a water study that has nothing to do with his property. The town won't accept the road that connects the two dead end streets going through the subdivision.

- The biggest issue here is the water run-off. Rob gives his input into what would help solve the issue. They want Rob to do the study and the work. There is a Culvert Pipe needed.

- There are a lot of tax benefits to having these subdivisions and that is why he's frustrated and curious as to why they are holding this project up.
