I’m posting here three documents from former Board of Variance member (as of extremely recently) Ray Tomlin about his removal from said board.
I haven’t had a chance to call anyone on this yet, but the documents include a memo and letter from city manager Penny Ballem stating her case, so I’ll count on you, my audience of Kremlinologists, to decipher what’s going on.
It’s all very strange. For a decade, I covered the Board of Variance and you never heard boo about it, except grumbling at the occasional party about how some neighbour or another had managed to “get away” with permission to build an extension or deck.
And now this.
