Please add this email and attached letter to both of my complaints to the Ombudsman. Recent documents obtained by King County DOT affirm that over 600 permits have been issued to Redmond Ridge and Trilogy since May 1, 2004, and that these permits have generated in excess of $1.2 million in fees to the county.Not only does this fact provide a motive for the county's refusal to count cars as alleged in my Novelty Hill Road complaint, but it proves a significant financial conflict of interest in DDES and/or DOT as alleged in my Conflict of Interest complaint. With so much revenue at stake when required to enforce this permit condition, the county is hopelessly conflicted when facing the loss of this revenue in exchange for upholding this Redmond Ridge permit condition.
Thank you.Michael Costello
