Town overcharged building fees; builders may be entitled to refunds

Original post made on Jun 25, 2009

Anyone building a home in Atherton who got permits before December 2006 might want to get out a calculator and give the building permit and plan-check fees a second look.

I would like to find out the reason that Charles Marsala's public records request on the subject issue is dated September 5th, yet in an September 10th e-mail to Wende Protzman Charles asks Wende Whether he needs a public records request.

From: charles marsala []
Sent: Monday, September 10, 2007 10:33 AM
To: Wendé Protzman
Subject: 3 emails


Mike Cully tells me there are 3 emails. One from him and two from John Johns (one to Mike and one to Mike's manager) regarding the overcharging on permits over $1M.

I would like copies of John Johns' emails as well. Do I need to do a FOIA request?



Additionally, it does not appear as though Marsala's request dated September 5th was ever endorsed by the Town as having been received.

I am sure there is a legitimate explanation.

Perhaps Charles can tell us what it is.
