Jim Monopoli, CRAHD Director

Old Saybrook CT 06475

Dear Director Monopoli:

Re your (CRAHD) 18Jul13 extortion letter, Order to upgrade.

The extortion:
"It is hereby ordered that said upgrade be made and such violation be removed, abated or corrected as follows:

"Abandonment of the existing septic tank and leaching system and installation of a new subsurface sewage disposal system meeting the requirements of the Connecticut Public Health Code and the Town of Old Saybrook Wastewater Upgrade Program Standards on or before the before the 26th day of October 2013."
Your lie in furtherance of the extortion:
"After an Initial Investigation of the subsurface sewage disposal system it has been determined that the system does not meet the requirements of Exhibit A to the Ordinance; the Town of Old Saybrook Upgrade Program Standards (the "Standards"). Specifically, the existing septic tank serving the property and the existing leaching system do not meet the requirements of the Standards"
The internal evidence in your 18Jul13 letter for the charge of lying:
"The Old Saybrook WPCA has indicated that you have not responded to the Notice of Entry letter (NOEL) sent to you. Please also respond to the Old Saybrook WPCA as outlined in the NOEL."
        To make a mistake and not to correct it 
        is to make another mistake.
            - Chinese proverb
No NOEL response by us. No authorization to investigate. No investigation. You lied when you said that there was "an Initial Investigation of the subsurface sewage disposal system."

You might want to retain private personal legal counsel before you decide against correcting your mistake. Neither CRAHD's nor Old Saybrook's lawyers can authorize extortion.

Mr Monopoli, everyone makes mistakes. This is your opportunity to correct your mistake. Failure to respond with a correction in a timely manner, which is to say by 06Aug13, will result in us taking a different course of action.

I await your response citing, at a minimum, your intention to correct your mistake, sent by email and by certified and first class mail.
                            Very truly yours,

                            Joel R. Anderson
