An editorial note on the IWC (Inland Wetlands Committee) public hearing on the Teakwood Estates Development Hearing scheduled for Wednesday, December 20th at 7 p.m. in Town Council Chambers beginning at 7 p.m.
“The dates and times of all IWC meetings are set by the Commission. In fact, those date and times were just voted upon by the Commission. The state is only setting the statutory timeline in which decisions must be made on applications. For example, the Commission votes to meet at 7 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month, but the state statute reads that we have only so many days to reach decisions – they list in terms of 30 days following acceptance, or 60 days following the opening of a public hearing, etc. The statutory timeline is provided in the staff memo for each application.” Kelly F. Kerrigan. Environmental Conservation Superintendent. Town of Stratford.
