OCTOBER 20TH UPDATE: STRUCTURE STILL THERE
As mentioned, the second foil request response from the village has been received on the Gouveia/Something Good/Gallelli/Wiegman activities. It is in two pdf files, over 11MB, and well over a hundred pages.
For reasons that are unclear, there are many duplicated pages; redactions have also been made to "protect the privacy" of certain individuals. 9/7 UPDATED: SECOND FOIL RESPONSE NOW ONLINE HERE http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2014/09/second-gouveia-foil-request-response.html
Because these files are so large it will take time to get them online---the contents are, as expected, very damning. However, there was one item in particular you may have an interest in--and that concerns the new "illegal structure" recently "discovered" on the Gouveia property--and which was discussed in a previous 8/20/14 post. (http://bit.ly/1tBe5C0)
1) In a 7/24/14 Gazette letter from Croton United's Joel Gingold detailing Trustee Gallelli's assertions that she "had no
knowledge of what Something Good in the
World (SGW) was doing on the Gouveia property and what SGW’s plans
were"--despite over 70 pages of emails previously obtained pursuant to a freedom of
information request that clearly showed otherwise--Mr. Gingold also
mentioned that what appeared to be a chicken coop had already been
constructed on the property.
You can read Mr. Gingold's letter and see the documents previously obtained through "FOIL" here: https://www.facebook.com/notes/croton-united/croton-united-member-joel-gingolds-letter-to-the-editor-july-24-2014/327495467407491
August 17th, after patiently waiting for the village to investigate
this latest illegal structure on the Gouveia property, photographs of
the "chicken coop" were sent to the board and the village manager, along
with a freedom of information request for any copies of the necessary
paperwork, permits, any possible variances, etc. that you and I would
have to apply for. You can see one of the photos sent below.
3) On August 18th, the village responded, specifically the manager, with copies to the board:
"Thank you for your email and photos regarding structures on
the Gouveia property. Not sure what the structure are for, but the
Village will be ordering to be taken down or have the property owner apply for
a zoning variance. The Village has no record of an application
being filed to build such structure. Representatives of the Gouveia Estate and
Something good in the world will be contacted accordingly."
4) In the SECOND foil request response received last week, the following email was located. It is dated June 9, 2014 from Something Good (Barbara Sarbin) to Mr. Wiegman and Ms. Gallelli. Click on the image below and form your own judgment as to who knew what and when regarding this illegal structure/chicken coop, the E-pods, etc. and more.
