PERMIT :  Status presented by Tony Senzarino   (Note:  Application for Permit filed on May 3, 2003)

Tony reported in detail on the arduous and frustrating task of  working with the NYS DEC and US Army Corp of Engineers on Permit consideration.  Tony had been led to believe the previous Oswego County Permit (of ten years duration) provided strong support for rapid consideration of an SPCMA permit.  Then he learned the authorities did not consider the permit documents or drawings to be directly transferable.  He was forced to develop and submit a new drawing and was told quite directly that Hydraulic Dredging would be considered, while Mechanical Dredging would not be favorably considered.  (Hydraulic Dredging is the removal of sand/ bottom sediments by a pumped slurry.  The pump is usually mounted on a barge, taking a suction on the bottom with a hose, and discharging via a hose also.  Mechanical Dredging in this application is considered to be sand removal by land based equipment, backhoes, front-end loaders, and trucks).

Motion to Adjourn at approximately 1 PM in preparation for a General Member ship Meeting. 
Moved- M. Pastuf, 2nd- Greg Breslin.  Approved.
