An inadequate response in so many ways. If DEEP has no document from the Town of Old Saybrook, DEEP should have said so.

It appears that DEEP is willing to issue ham-fisted threats on behalf of the Town instead of enforcing the Consent Decree with the Town, an action, if taken, that would make such threats unnecessary.

> As previously advised, it was the Department's understanding that the Town intended to file a letter on the land records regarding your property's non-compliance with the order issued by the Connecticut River Area Health District on July 18, 2013. However, since this will be a Town issued document for your property, you will have to submit your request directly to the Town.

Is there nobody at DEEP who thinks logically?

I can't make a FOIA request for a document that the Town "intends" (your words) to issue, that only you (DEEP) know about. The Town may "intend" a host of things, none of which will come to fruition. FOIA only delivers documents, not "intentions."
