Public Comments Received by the Storey County Planning Commission Regarding Tom’s Application for Special Use Permit 2011-010
I asked for, and received, copies of the Public Comments received by the Storey County Planning Commission regarding Tom and Midge Taorima’s application for a Special use Permit to install two 195 ft towers in addition to the several towers they already have.
The Public Comments were in several formats.
The comments submitted by email were in the ".MSG" format, which is produced by Microsoft Outlook.
This format is difficult to convert to a useable format unless you have Microsoft Outlook, which I don't have.
I used the program http://www.pcvare.com/buy-msg-to-pdf-converter.html which converts MSG files to PDF.
It does a nice job.
My policy for posting public comments is as follows.
1. When comments are submitted by individuals I redact their email address unless they claim an affiliation with an organization in order that their comments be given special weight.
2. When comments are submitted by organizations or companies I do not redact their email address or Web site URLs (if there is one).
3. I do not redact postal addresses because if someone wants to spend money on postage, they can.
4. I do not generally redact telephone numbers because the standard rules for Telemarketers apply.
I have converted emails and MS Word documents to PDF and html.
Files containing articles in PDF remain in their original PDF format.
I will attempt to present the comments in chronological order by date (but not time of day).
