It is Time for the Selectmen to ACT!

With fresh allegations of electioneering, and his outrageous defiance of his employer's wishes, it is high time for the selectmen to take action with regards to the police chief. Gross insubordination can not be allowed to exist in any organization, and it has run rampant in the Town of Atkinson for far too long.

For those who wonder how we got to this point, the following Article was published on this blog in July 2008;

The evolution of a costly problem.
Anonymous said...

Atkinson Reporter2 please accept this as an article submission;

The evolution of a costly problem.

Although I grew up in Atkinson, I left to go to college, and now live out of state, but as I have family in town I try to keep up on events in town. I LOVED reading the Atkinson Reporter, and the Atkinson Taxpayers website, and now I love reading this site.

Background now out of the way, I have spent much time reading the website. I remember a lot of these incidents, but seeing it all together in one place is overwhelming. I decided to write about what I felt about reading all of this.

I think we can all agree, even though the police chief evidently does good work with the elderly, he is a costly problem to the town, what with all the lawsuits, resident complaints, shouting at meetings, Gestapo tactics with his enemies, etc. I wanted to examine how this could be allowed to happen in my home town.

As far as I can tell chief Consentino was appointed on a probationary basis in 1978 to the position of chief of police. At that time, as near as I can tell, he had been a part- time police officer for 8 years or so, with little or no formal training, or experience. It was in 1980 apparently that the first problem appeared;( all of this is available in the court documents section of

A Selectman, Wayne Peak, apparently found that minor fees that the police charged for reports and such, were not being deposited to the town, but given to the patrolmens association(a private organization). As this was money charged by the town for services, Peak determined that it belonged to the town, and characterized the misappropriation of these monies as misuse of funds, or some type of theft. Peak brought his information to the board of selectmen and asked them to punish the police chief, but they refused. Peak went to court, filing a Writ of Mandamus, demanding that the Court order the selectmen to do their duty. He also resigned in protest.

I have to say that the court documents read like an adventure novel, allegations of police harassment, false charges of reckless driving later dismissed, formal accusations of witness tampering, employing agents to fire shots at the police station, complaints to the Mass Dept. of Revenue, untimely audits yielding no results, at one point chief Consentino even sued Mr. Peak, claiming, Libel, Slander, Defamation of Character, reduced earnings capacity, and stress related illness’. These competing claims wound their way through the Court system for 7 years, until being settled for an undisclosed amount. Mr. Peak then threw a party in N.Andover the weekend after the settlement to show off the TWO new Cadillac Eldorado’s he purportedly bought with the settlement.

This case was finally settled in 1988. In 1990 or 1991 there came another issue, then Lt. Rick Daniels resigned suddenly over disputes with chief Consentino. Chief Consentino claimed in the Eagle-Tribune that Daniels “wiped out 12 years of computer database information before he left”. Daniels claimed this never happened, and was heard to state that Atkinson didn’t even have a database in 1979.

In 1996 or so their was some issue apparently with police standards and training, resulting in their visit to town.

In 1997 and 1998 there were endless shouting matches between selectman Fred Childs questions about budget and expenditures in the police dept. and chief Consentino’s refusal to provide clarification to this selectmen, his boss. All of this is detailed in the Eagle Tribune, and on the site.

In 1999, the officers got so frustrated that they decided to form a union. There were “intimidation letters” from chief Consentino to the organizers, resulting in a labor board case, in which the NH Public Employees Labor Relations Board, ordered the “town and its Agent(Consentino) to cease and desist from any bullying, harassment, and intimidation of officers”.

Around this same time Mrs. Childs, then a part time officer herself, in Atkinson, evidently filed a complaint with police standards and training about chief Consentino’s hours, that he worked too many to be part time, and that he lacked the training and education to be full time. Chief Consentino responded by asking one of his officers to visit her house and take pictures of her Hampstead animal control cruiser, he followed this up with a letter to the Hampstead selectmen accusing Mrs. Childs of misusing her cruiser for personal business. When Mrs. Childs found out about this intimidation, and rightly blew up about it, Consentino claimed “I was acting as Phil Consentino resident, not Phil Consentnio, chief” Like every “resident” has access to police officers and police dept. stationary!

In 2003, there was another flap that ended up before the labor board involving officer Lorden, case was settled with officer Lorden receiving payment. There was another labor board case involving Officer Buco, another settlement, another payment. 2003, also saw the infamous “Town that hates Halloween” story, reported on CNN, Boston Globe, Union Leader, AP, Howard Stern, Michael Graham, Howie Carr, etc. Nice Job!

In 2004 saw the first conflict of interest allegations from Brian Boyle, then from Mark Acciard. Acciard, then a budget committee member, filed a code of ethics complaint, which they ignored. He then filed with the Court asking for an injunction to keep the POLICE CHIEF from DECIDING POLICE MATTERS AS A SELECTMAN!!! Should be a no brainer, right? Wrong! Chief Consentino refused to step aside, even after the Court ordered him to, and the Court found this 30 year chief in CONTEMPT OF COURT! He didn’t like that and tried to appeal it to the NH Supreme Court, and they dismissed his case!

In 2006 He was the subject of a Federal Civil Rights Suit against the Town, recently settled! Another settlement another payment!

And Now the Town is currently facing a $3,000,000.00 lawsuit alleging misconduct AGAIN on the part of Atkinson’s police chief! When does it end?

The selectmen could, at any time, during all of this done their duty, and enforced town policy, and reprimanded, suspended, or even fired the chief, but they have done nothing, and the allegations, legal costs, increased insurance premiums, all continue to march on.

Since that time there has been another lawsuit, with legal expenses so extraordinary to attempt to craft a defense for Phil's actions, that Primex, the Town's long time insurer, DROPPED THE TOWN COVERAGE! this forced the town to pay the rest of the expenses to settle that case out of pocket.

this is a chief law enforcement officer who began his tenure with allegations of misappropriation of funds, was Ordered by the NHPELRB to stop bullying and harassing his officers, Who has been responsible for AT LEAST TWO Settlements on Unfair labor practices charges, and AT LEAST TWO out of court settlements to lay to rest abuse of authority, harassment, etc. cases, has been the subject of NO LESS than EIGHT LEGAL actions during his tenure, incurring hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal expenses and settlements, was ORDERED by the Court to recuse himself from meetings, only to VIOLATE that order, and be found IN CONTEMPT OF COURT. He then wasted MORE taxpayer money to appeal that decision to the NH Supreme Court who dismissed for LACK OF STANDING! He has a documented history of threatening his opponents, following them through town, defaming them and making false statements at meetings, Lying to the People of Atkinson, and his routine arrogance, and general disregard for the demands of his employers. In ANY OTHER TOWN an employee who committed a FRACTION of this behavior would have been fired.

It is time for the selectmen to follow the DEMANDS of the AG's office in 2008, and the recommendations of the MRI report, and PHYSICALLY SEPARATE Police and Elderly Affairs. Move EA to the Community center, merge it with all of the other senior programs into one all encompassing full service dept. Dispatch the cars from there. Offer Phil a CHOICE; he can choose to remain as police chief, or as Elderly Affairs Director, BUT NOT BOTH!

It is time to put the good of the Town above the wishes of one of it's EMPLOYEES.

Bravo!! Come on, Selectmen. Grow a pair! Do your duty. Serve the people as you were elected to.

Anonymous said...

You have to remember that each selectman was hand picked by Consentino and threw his Elderly Affairs "Vote Getting Scheme" people to vote them into office. Each Selectman owes Consentino and the "Scratch my back and I'll protect yours" mentality is in play. The selectmen are as much a part of our problem as Consentino is.

Until we get Consentino and his gang out of office, the illegal actions will continue. Insurance premiums will go up (or worse yet the town will be dropped and no other company will take us on), innocent taxpayer will be harassed or arrested; selectmen will force every issue into the court system, and defy every judgment against them. This will result in more lawsuits and the revolving door will continue.

Now you know why behind closed doors they call themselves the "Atkinson Mafia".

Until these goons are forced out of office, Atkinson will continue to be the cesspool of NH municipalities. It will only end when taxpayers get involved in the issues and get good honest people into office. The Snakes heads must be cut off.

you must take this is a grain of salt, this blog is made up of only 5 people who belive these allegations, the rest of the people are strongly against it. The site blocks comments that oppose there beliefs. This blog is the definition of corruption. They clearly dont believe in helping the elderly which is sad. They also call the cops over non sense and when the cops do nothing because there is no crime, they criticize the cops and the chief. This blog needs to be put to a stop once and for all, the brain washing is not working folks.

I also say "Bravo!" No one said that Phil doesn't help the elderly...just that he shouln't be doing BOTH jobs! Let me resign from the Police force & run the EA from the Community Center. Then every one will be happy. I remember all of the bullying to Mark A. Wayne Peake, Carol Grant...the screaming at them etc. It is disgusting that one of our town officials behaved in such a juvenile manner. I thought that Bill Friel would be a breath of fresh air, but I was wrong. Please the right thing for our town!

Correction to my previous post. It should say "Let HIM resign from the police force" Sorry about that!

Nice to see the Conman still reads this blog daily and posts anonymous in defense of himself. He's been trying to get rid of this blog (his worst nightmare) ever since it started. The town has tried repeatedly to find out who runs it so they can send one of the Goons out to destroy it.

Nice to see that hasn't worked for them either.

Resign Conman before you run this town into bankruptcy. Town can’t afford any more lawsuits because of your stupid behavior.

To 1118;

Unfortunately for you every claim in that article are documented. Most of the documents, are available on the website. There is also quite a bit more information not included in the article that has been obtained through discovery in various lawsuits.

Your assertions of innocence are misplaced.

Atkinson Reporter said...

For the person commenting at 11:18am;

This blog neither now, nor ever has removed comments due to opposing opinions. Conversation is encouraged and welcomed.

However Ad hominem personal attacks, not germane to the article will be removed every time, as will the juvenile cat comments.

We will add Mrs. LaFrance to the ever growing list of town residents whom our local J.Edgar has credited with running this blog.

At various times he has accused; Ken Grant, Carol Grant, Mark Acciard, Brian Boyle, jane Cole, Brian Kaye, Leon Artus, Gary Brownfield, Steve lewis, and Now Mrs. laFrance. He and the town have also spent over $10,000 dollars in legal fees trying to find out who runs it.

Keep guessing, Phil.

You can only be the Conman himself posting this comment. Why? Only a Police Chief himself could have inside information that the Police are sick of her false complaints. (No police log to back it up).

Only a Conman Police Chief could threaten a private citizen with being "Taken Down" and get away with it.

It's time for our police chief to be put in jail for his actions.

Stick it your ear Phil..........honest people will make sure you do your time. You can be sure of that.

You better learn to kiss your a.s goodbye because your are to only person that loves it.

Con man authored the three blogs that are in support of him by the language and the times of day. First one at 11:18 am, next at 11:39 am and then quickly at 11:40 am.
Has to be the same person one blog right after the other, and by the phrasing it is Consentino.
He needs to get up earlier and be a lot sharper.
Only he and Jack Sapia are paranoid about shutting down the blog. Other people believe in the first amendment.

You can't arrest someone for slander, but you can arrest someone for stealing from the public, abuse of office, criminal threatening, corruption. You can sue someone for slander but you actually have to have proof not just empty accusations and you cannot prove something that never happened. You can prove that someone misrepresented facts on a federal grant form, that someone filed false requests for public funds, that someone was arrested for burglary. Too bad you can't have someone or two people arrested for cheating on their spouse or electioneering.

"its quiet clear to everyone"


Anonymous said...

Where's the slander? In the article? It's not slander when what you say is true. It is not slander when someone says something you don't agree with.

There are a set of laws in place that could address the problems outlined. It is called Racketeering. And, if any of the actions by the chief involve federally regulated entities or crosses the state line, it can become a federal case. For instance, calling from NH to the ET in MA and providing false information that causes harm can be considered wire fraud, a federal crime. Sending a threatening letter - mail fraud, a federal crime.

If the BOS won't take action, and the state won't won't take action, send the relevant material to the Attorney General's office in Boston. You can be sure somewhere in there are federal crimes that could be actionable.

I hope he hangs on until he can be arrested and sued a few more times. I am all for it. He doesn't understand what a dumb fool he is but for all those who he has slandered, I say, let's get rid of him once and for all.

It is slander to be blogging about a woman he is targeting with his official position. I didn't see any complaints in the log about any calls by her, yet this maniac and his underling maniac continue to prey on her and bully her in public, here and in the grocery store when they do not have any reason to do so. What a disgrace.

Atkinson Reporter said...

to the commentator Nov.20, 10:29am;

Neither Ms. LaFrance, nor any of the other usual suspects own, or run this blog. I highly doubt that any of the people you fantasize about being caught running this "told you" that they do.

Furhter, Moderation is off on this blog and has been for over a year, meaning that what you post is immediately visible, unfiltered, therefore your claim that this blog only publishes comments it likes is just another lie.

The only comments that are removed(notice that they are published then removed further destroying your false claims) are removed because they are personal ad hominem attacks that have no bearing upon the ensuing discussion.

This means that the only person actively engaged in slander is you!

"Im hoping along with numerous other people that there plan to bring her down works."

The cops are plotting against a resident you say? Why? Is the police department still targeting people for speaking up against the corruption? It has been going on for thiry years, I read about it in the other taxpayer site.

I see an comment here that she filed a false accusation, but I don't hear what it is or what it's about. If you are going to post comments like this, they should be substantiated or you are the slandering person. I'll bet that you don't have anything to counter on this.

'They also call the cops over non sense and when the cops do nothing because there is no crime, they criticize the cops and the chief.'

Would you take the word of someone who can't spell to tell you what is what? These guys are so dumb and uneducated that I cannot believe they pretend to know what is a crime. This is a Chief who thinks following people around town is ok, that using his badge to bully kids in wheelchairs is ok, that hasn't made a single arrest in years and somehow he just might know something about the LAW? Give me a break, he doesn't know what a felony is and when he sees one he looks the other way. He is so disinterested in being a cop, just wants the badge to use it as leverage against residents.

MAcciard said...

My very first run in with the chief when I moved back to town after my Mom died in 1999, was the following. I registered my wifes minivan, and totally forgot about inspection(I had been living in Ohio, where they did not have safety inspections at that time) I got a ticket for uninspected vehicle, and went to Jacks that day and got it done. Two days later, on monday, chief called me and offered to tear ti up, if I had gotten it inspected. I said I had, and thank you, he told me to bring it by the station, I did, he looked at it and disposed of the ticket.

A year and a half later when I asked questions on Budget committee about how many residents used elderly affairs, and how many rides it gave, Chief cornered me in the lobby of the Town Hall after the meeting and asked me what the hell I was doing? I said, "what do you mean, I am doing my job." He responded; "but, I did you a favor", I said; "what are you talking about?" He said;" the ticket", I said; "Chief, you offered to tear up a $43,20 ticket for me, I didn't ASK you to do it. I appreciated it and said thank you, but I don't OWE you anything! What did you think? Tearing up a $43 ticket meant that you owned me? Jesus..." I laughed and walked away.

And THAT incident demonstrated to me the lack of character in a man fulfilling a job reliant upon ethical character.

Every now and then I click on this blog and I'm glad I am only one of the 20 residents that do, but here's a few facts

1. Friel's band of illegals who were working on the Kimball House disappeared when ICE Agents stopped in town.

2. Does anyone wonder why Fred has such a bad taste for APD in his mouth? I don't think its the A part, I think he hates PD, hmm maybe he had a bad expirience with police administration before. Please share with us Mt Childs before we dig deeper into your former profession and why you don't recive a retirement from LPD.

3. Mr Shoooooster you have been hanging with this BOS too long already, I have watched 25 yrs of selectmens meetings and never heard until this group how busy they are in their real life, that excuse is getting old.

When people are losing their power, they go berserk. We see that recently with all the verbal attacks, threats and moronic behavior of small and bitter man, who have mostly failed themselves and embarassed the rest of us.

The former Sheriff lost his job for showing around a person's expunged record. We have a so-called law-enforcement officer who went around town showing someone's past record and he also should have been fired for it back then.

He has a very long history of getting info on residents, then holding it over their heads to get them to shut and move.

Can we just hope that all the recent irrational behavior is rewarded by a set of handcuffs with no key?

The Osborn's are also filing complaints on a nine year old neighbor and want those kids banned from ridding on the school bus for the rest of their school years. (Keep IN MIND THE OSBORN KIDS ARE ALREADY BANNED FROM THE BUS.)

We also have proof that the Conman GOONS had a close neighbor thrown into jail over the weekend on the word of the Osborns. She didn't get bailed out till Monday afternoon.

It's the holidays and does anyone see the problem with the timing?

Don't believe us? File a right to know request with the police dept. OR SELECTMEN and see what you get. (It’s you right without cost)

Now let's ask why the selectmen are allowing this since the Osborn's are banned from living at 8 Valcat Lane by court order, and selectmen have done NOTHING to enforce that order paid for at taxpayer legal expense. (Not Insurance Company expense)

Do you see the interaction between the Conman, Selectmen, court orders and selectmen enforcement yet?

Osborn's are still living at 8 Valcat when the court ordered them out. They are filing complaints with the police dept and the conman is sending his goons to arrest people or kids, without asking why the Osborn's are living there.

The selectmen are protecting one of their own Mafia members to take your rights away, going so far to have you thrown in jail to protect one of their own.

Do you reading this ever want to be forced to live next to an Osborn property, knowing that the Police chief is protecting them from their harassment of you? How would you feel if the town didn't notify you as an abutter during the building permit process, and the Osborn's drove a driveway across your land with selectmen.......planning board approval?

That's what happened to Carol Davis and it cost her thousands to get her rights back while the selectmen said they would do nothing.

Bottom line.........Consentino can do anything he wants with selectmen approval to take your rights away and when you complain.............selectmen will allow the conman to arrest you and do NOTHING ABOUT IT!

It’s time to FLUSH these people down the drain. Call the people that know what illegal activity is going on in town, and ask what you can do to protect yourself.

Don't call your public officials or your name will go on the Conman
's list to attack. Call those that have been fighting the Conman and Selectmen to see what you can do from being arrested for complaining.


Take you town back committee

As many of us are football fans and we all know John Madden, I feel that we should in the spirit of Madden be nominating Atkinson residents for an award, I don't think it should be something so awesome as a turkey leg, for that infers strength and confidence. How about we nominate the top Atkinson coward and we present them with a Turkey's giblets. The winner should be present at the Tree lighting on Sunday afternoon and the presentation can be made by Santa.

Get your nominations in!
Here's mine


Carol Davis (not Grant)



and of course top on my wish list is Mr Bennett

Vote often and early!!

I'm thankful for lafrance and all her cop calling friends, all the rumor starters and gossip queens. If it wasn't for you I'm not sure what you and your mafia would do with your lives. So please call the cops today for no reason and make up some stories for this stupid blog.

No one calls the cops anymore, what a waste of time. Call the BOS and they will take action. Great bunch of guys in there now.

Obviously the John Madden post was made by Detective Farrah. He has been whining about the APD for years but lately he hates everyone in Town.

The turkey award goes to the entire PD. A waste of money and crappy service to boot. Maybe Momma Jody can make a soup for the trustee's lunch...I hear he's still showing up in spite of the Selectmen's letter.

Don't call the cops, they never do anything if you don't donate. If you need something, call Fred or Bill or Craig, they are doing everything these days.

Why are the cops responding to calls from 8 Valcat at all, no Town residents live there, correct? The PD is clearly conflicted when they continue to respond to illegal residents. If the APD had any sense or competency, they would be charging the Osborns with disobeying a court order. Why aren't they doing their jobs?

Anonymous said...

The Osborns have NO STANDING to ask the court to ban any kid from the bus since they aren't supposed to be living there. If you don't have standing, you can't make a request of the court.

Anonymous said...

It's serious but funny that the APD and the lead clown always reacts badly to calls. Either they see nothing, hear nothing, smell nothing or they are going after people for political reasons.

The PD is a fiasco and I think the town NEEDS more lawsuits to get rid of the clowns. Hopefully the third letter the clown got this week was a request for his resignation.

Clowns smell funny. Throw them out.

Can someone please post who did the arrest so we know which officer is responsible for playing the game?

If the women at the stinky PD file a lawsuit about the air quality, we should file a counter suit against the Chief for bringing the stinky pet dog in there and for using a Town vehicle and letting him ruin the police station's air.

He must be held liable for the cleaning bills for years and years.

Maybe we should hold him liable even if they do not file a lawsuit. Yes, let's!!

Hey 11/23 @ 5:57

Must we go through this again?

It is not the town obliged to notify abutters of ZBA actions; it is the responsibility of the applicant. If an abutter is not properly notified of a hearing, I'd bet that abutter would have cause for challenge if a decision went against the abutter's interests.

The Osborn - Davis notification was not the town's fault, it was the Osborn's "oversight". Davis appeared at the second meeting before any decision was rendered so they had ample opportunity to testify.

The ZBA (properly) would not hear or comment on the driveway matter... a civil matter between abutters where the ZBA had no jurisdiction.

Get off the conspiracy delusions. I am still waiting to read a lucid post on how "the town" is backing the Osborns... aren't we now at $100K plus in fines with only one court appeal remaining? Has the town backed off?

What would you have the town do... send in The Chief with his jackbooted Storm Troopers?

Anonymous said...

Anon's post of November 25, 2011 7:34 PM is nothing but SPIN designed to take the heat of the town officials.

There was and still is a conspiracy against Mrs. Davis by the Osborn's and the town.

Anonymous said...

The conspiracy between the Atkinson police and the Osborns and directed at a neighbor
Teresa D. is in a way worse than the Carol Davis persecution by the Osborns.
Margaret Osborn on her say so alone, had Teresa arrested twice. The first time she was fined $4,000.00. This time she actually had to go to jail. Our ex police Sgt. Detective Farrar was involved in both arrests and prosecutions. Consentino wants to keep him on to do his dirty work and that is why Farrar will never work in Atkinson again. He is just a mini Gestapo for Phil and the selectmen have come to realize Consentino and Farrar are just greedy psychos with badges. Who ever heard of paying $25.00 and hour for part time and time and a half or $37.00 to pick up the cleaning trustee at the jail everyday. Consentino and Farrar had a good thing going there for a long time.

Be glad you don't ever live near Margaret Osborn because she will accuse you of harassment, threatening, damaging her property, trespassing whatever comes to mind. The police will arrest you on her word. It has happened much more than once, to more than one person at more than one address. She likes to spread her deceitfulness around.

On her word the police chief stopped a certified surveyor from replacing a bounds marker that the Osborns removed so that they could enlarge their property. The surveyor had done a certified survey, requested by the neighborhood. Maggie should have been arrested; it is a serious infraction to remove a bounds marker. What did the police do, they went after the neighbors and warned them to stay off their own neighborhood property.

She has done this time after time, to an overabundance of innocent people.

And the police department has obliterated any record of her calling in complaints in their "log."

This is one of the reasons Consentino doesn't want to post a log in the paper and the log has not been updated since the beginning of November on the town’s great new web site. He can hide the little favors that he does for some people.

Anybody know anything more about this second arrest? Police Department won’t let you see the record.

Anonymous said...

"Must we go through this again?"

Yes, we must.

The Town is partly responsible because the Osborn's were not the owner of record of the property where they requested a driveway.

I really don't care what spin you put on this, but the Town took an application for a permit for that driveway and they knew Osborn didn't own it. You can say they 'thought' she had rights, but the town shouldn't 'think' when the applicant is not th eonwer. They should have no, not without owner sign off.

Anonymous said...

Farrar is a jack@$$.

He is openly biased in this case and has criticized the Selectmen, Leon and lots of other decent people whilst he is using his position as revenge against anyone he doesn't like.

Now that he's been fired, I hope we don't have to listen to the whining on the blog about Bennett or cats.

Anonymous said...

The situation with Maggie is awful. The idea that anyone would trespass and damage a neighbors property is the lowest of the low. They have to live next to each other! Maggie encroached with her driveway and cut down trees, what a terrible, terrible way to try and take advantage of Mrs. Davis. I am disgusted that the police have taken sides but I am not suprised, they always seem to side with the criminals and I am tired of it.

Farrar and the Chief should be sued for abuse of power.

Anonymous said...

The OLeary's have been doing the same things at Lafrances for years. I think poisoning their property is worse than cutting that driveway. It was a hateful, dangerous and criminal act, also ignored by the Atkinson Police.

Bet ya he still won't take NO for an answer because the CONMAN will protect him. Might even continue to give him $25.00 an hour (PLUS OVERTIME) for doing nothing (like always), even though Selectmen have said no to the double dealing.


My heavens.........THERE just might be A GOD!

OK 11/26 10:21 AM... Play it out.

1. The town receives scores of permit applications per year.
2. In each case the applicant asserts they have the right to request the permission being sought.

Do you REALLY think the Road Agent should research the deeds in Brentwood for every Driveway permit to be sure the applicant is legitimate?

Do you REALLY think the Building Inspector should go to Brentwood to verify the applicant has authority for every Building Permit application?

That is what you are suggesting. As odd as it may sound, the "town" does not "know" anything (in this case that the Osborns intended to cut a driveway over land they had no rights to).

Your hatred of town employees and volunteers is sad. It is the Osborns who appear to have misbehaved.

Anonymous said...

The OSBORN'S HAVE LIED FOR YEARS ON THEIR PERMIT APPLICATIONS. The Town knows that and one would think they would verify the information. Not doing so, is the reason the town officials should not have anything to say about our land

Leaving the Osborn's (or anyone else for that matter) to supply legal information on an application without the town verifing everything, leaves the chance for corruption rampant. The fact that the town allows it, says everything about the corruption in this town.

If the town doesn't verify what it required, then we don't need the laws. PERIOD.

corruption under any other name is CORRUPTION.

THANK YOU PLANNING BOARD, SELECTMEN, (past and present) for destroying so many lives for the advantage of OSBORN TYPE PEOPLE who you take donations form.



Oh, Conman and selectmen along with Polito and Sapia made it go bye bye! I almost forgot..........

All of you should pay damages out of your own pocket for the damages you have caused to honest people.

Atkinson employees, you don't have to waste time and gas driving all the way to Brentwood to research property ownership issues. Try the following URL instead. It could prevent another Osborn / Davis horror show. Trust but verify.

And add a line to town forms stating there is a $5000 fine for knowingly providing incorrect information. Town can no longer tolerate being "Osborned".

All the town has to do is see who they are sending thier own tax bill to twice a year to show ownership. Cross the lobby and ask Debbie if you think it may take longer than 2 minutes to look it up yourself. The KNOW who owns what property in town.

Anonymous said...

Does the town plan to add insult to injury and increase the valuation and therefore the taxes on the Davis property now that there's a road across it? State probably considers an improvement an improvement and the town will say their hands are tied.

Anonymous said...

They have a nerve if they did this. This is not an improvement, it's an eyesore. They ought to charge the Osborns with an improvement if anyone gets charged.

Davis has a valid case that since it was done without her prermission, it's not an improvement. She also needs to sue the town.

Anonymous said...

The ZBA is culpable for violation of the Davis property rights yet attemp to excuse themselves under the banner of incompetence. Sharp eyes are upon the ZBA and the Selectmen for all wrongs perpetrated upon the townsfolk. The Selectman and authorities are also culpable for not enforcing the laws and arresting or even investigating the numerous property vandalisms on Granite Ridge Way. Which is a very serious addendum to the Davis vandalism-ZBA saga.

What is needed is moral leadership from all our elected officials, not lame excuses.

Consentino and his CROWD of CROOKS (ie town officials) will do ANYHING THEY CAN to steal your land or rights. They hope you will not be paying attention when they do it, and know that you will be unwilling to pay attorney fees to defend yourself.
