New shelter facility plans underway

welcome - Carver, MA - Carver Reporter
In January of 2006 the Board of Selectmen directed Rick Lafond to
start litigation with BATG (Read
Minutes of Selectmen's Meeting). Selectmen Frank Casey
repeatedly blamed the Department of Environmental Protection for
releasing the FAM (Financial Assurance Mechanism) that guaranteed the
contractor completed the project. DEP officials revealed to Dawn
Padovani that the FAM never assured the completion of the dog
shelter. Mr. Caseys efforts to blame the DEP and confuse the Citizens
of Carver are shameful. Citizens inquired many times since then as to
the status of the lawsuit. We were assured that litigation between
the town and BATG had commenced. A citizens investigation of Bristol
and Plymouth County court records reveals that no lawsuit has been
filed by the Town of Carver to this date. Town Administrator LaFond
indicated that Town Counsel wrote the contractor a 93A letter
(Consumer Protection Action) which could yield Double or treble
damages. That action, a legal Hail Mary, has yielded no results thus
far. Legal dodgeball and stalling tactics will not win lawsuits that
Selectmen refuse to provide leadership and promise to schedule a
litigation update with Town Counsel in executive session well out of
view of a public that grows increasingly frustrated with inaction and
misinformation from Town Officials.
