DUV update - materials available to Attorneys’ DUV analysis (CLICK HERE or the headline to view. You can download all three opinions).
I reviewed the 3 paid attorney opinions and I may release my opinion in advance of the hearings.
My first observation is that I cannot believe that I am the only on to release them; that they have not officially been released by the Village for study by the public. I guess this administration works on a “need to know” basis and deems that at this point the public needs not know. So it appears that it is OK for the public to pay for these opinions, but not to view the opinions in advance of the DUV hearings.
I am waiting to hear something, anything, from a member of the village council. It appears that the current Mayor and Council Members are playing it close to the vest, not commenting (A/K/A "committing") to anything in public, seemingly only willing to discuss in closed groups of their own specific supporters (or maybe they have yet to begin to focus on the issue).
It appears to me that all options are on the table. I will be interested to see if there are any changes to the original opinions as it gets closer to decisions, or if any one or all three of the attorneys will be invited to participate at the DUV hearings in order to actually apply an actual opinion to a firm set of facts rather than answering a broad brush survey of the general law of municipal zoning.
