Cyr was not in favor of this change. Gelinas stated that on this Nov. 5, 1979 - cont. plan Bud Cyr got his continuous dr~nage, his trenches and the Con. Com. got some of what they wanted. Cyr's objections: on the actual road layout there isn't enough water to worry about compensatory storage, this kind of structure is not good for the well-being of the road construction, and we have enought maintenance problems without taking on more. Gelinas stated that the BOARD is being asked toapprove this change; somebody has to answer for this; you ask to h~ve these changes brought before you. Chepulis answered that it is only informational to the BOARD because of the way the letter is worded; Gelinas said he would re-write the letter.
