Without complaint from residents since 2007...
Without any history of safety violations...
After telling the owners/operators in September 2008 that no special permit is available or needed to operate their event
Without regard for contacting the owners or operators of the Haunted Tunnel located at 62 Juniper drive in
The words "For Profit" were reference
Cindy & Art Call have invested over $5,000 since 2007

$1500 Wood and Plastic Structure
$1000 Sound, Lighting & Electricity
$500 in prop purchases from other HOME HAUNT operators
$550 in Misc supplies (paint, paper, spray paint, hay, etc...)
Time off work for friends and family to help plan and run this event - priceless - we love you all!!!!!
So called Profit!!!!
2007 only $439 dollars were donated by those who attended.
2008 only $783 dollars were earned (for fee of $5.00 A & $3.00) 3 out of the 4 nights we planned to operate - one night we closed because of weather)
FYI - ALL THOSE PEOPLE THAT HAVE TAG SALES - WATCH OUT YOU ARE "FOR PROFIT"!
Our advertising was also reference i.e. website, flyers, signage etc...
DUH Mr.TROTT - The Haunted Tunnel (oh and other events) have been doing all of these since 2007 - glad you noticed FINALLY!
The Owners and Operators of the Haunted Tunnel were not notified that they would be a topic of discussion as per the posted agenda & previous meeting minutes. And they did not learn that they were a topic of conversation OFFICALLY until 10-21-09 - when the town finally posted their minutes from the 10-13-09 meeting. The minutes reflected 30 days however the documentation received via certified mail today (10-23-09 OPENING NIGHT) states otherwise!
