Vol. I No. 05 10/1/2020
The Stockbridge Bowl Association (SBA)
For the second time, SBA is suing the Town of Stockbridge. The caption for the filing reads: Stockbridge Bowl Association Inc. v. Town of Stockbridge Conservation Commission and its members Ron Brouker, Joseph H. DeGiorgis, John Hart. Patrick White, Jay Rhind, Charlotte Underwood Miller, and Jamie Minacci.
The claim reads in part: "The Honorable John A. Agostini of this court previously ordered the Commission to approve the SBA's proposed project to treat Eurasian Milfoil in Stockbridge Bowl." The suit claims that Stockbridge is in contempt of court for willingly ignoring a judge's order.
As reported in the first issue of Stockbridge Updates, Thomas W. Coote, PhD, the Director of the Berkshire Environmental Research Center at Bard College at Simon's Rock, was hired by the town to find and catalog Eurasian Watermilfoil. Coote found a very small amount of milfoil.
