            Mr. Senesky stated the applicant’s attorney informed me they have a conflict with their planner and need to be carried.  They are requesting a special meeting, if possible, understanding they would have to pay the costs involved.  He still had his planner to testify and an objector plans to have a traffic expert and planner to testify.  This is in addition to any members of the public that wish to be heard.  This application would need one full night of public hearing to get concluded.

 

            Chairman DiFrisco stated with everyone’s time schedules it is nearly impossible to hold a special meeting.  The next available meeting where Quick Check can be the sole applicant on the agenda is November 14, 2005.
