Jeffrey Trotter, of Shakespeare at Stinson, stated that District staff instructed Mr. Trotter that another Variance would be required for holding tanks. Mr. Trotter also stated that the Board had requested that all on site structures be temporary with the exception of the two permanent bathrooms. Mr. Trotter then requested that the Board review 1994 documents which he submitted, that the Board assist him in permitting the portable toilets with permanent status if the County issued a seven year permit to operate and that the Board generate a letter to Environmental Health stating that the use of portable toilets would be acceptable to the District.
