5 Q’s w/Julie Dalsaso re: Hagadone Dock Proposal

In this Jesse Tinsley photo from July 24, the pilot of Duane Hagadone’s Bell 430 helicopter is picked up by speedboat at its landing pad on Casco Bay.

At Julie Dalsaso’s request, a public hearing on Duane Hagadone’s request for a commercial dock and expanded helipad in front of his Casco Bay residence will be conducted at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Idaho Department of Lands office, 3780 Industrial Ave., Coeur d’Alene. Huckleberries Online asked Julie 5 questions about her decision to spend $75 to request the hearing.

DFO: Why are you concerned about Duane Hagadone’s request for a commercial dock and helipad at Casco Bay?
Julie Dalsaso: First, I was drawn in by the fact that the closing date for public comment on the application was Thanksgiving Day. I think that was by design. Secondly, the types of permits he’s requesting tend to have a commercial, for-profit claim. The lake belongs to the people. We should be receiving something in return.
