    Good morning. I have forwarded you the email that I sent to Jeanne and her response. This is the last contact that I have had with them regarding the road work.

    Thank you.

    Matt Aylor,

    Thank you for your prompt response. We are repairing the existing road including grading and adding stone as the road has not been kept up for several years. The portion of the road at Tax Parcel 14-13, I believe I misnamed as a turnaround. It is the terminus or end of the work to be done and is simply going to be graded and graveled. There will be no roadwork done past this point. All of the work will be managed within the existing right of way. I am assuming that a land disturbance permit will not be required.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Again, I appreciate your immediate attention to this issue.

    Thank you,

    Jeanne Cerniglia,

    Good afternoon. The improvement of the existing road through grading or adding stone would not require a land disturbance permit. The addition of a “turn around” as mentioned, or any widening of the roadway, would most likely require a land disturbance permit. I think if you could provide a detailed scope of work then I could better determine if a permit would be needed. Also, I would be more than happy to meet you on site and discuss whether a permit may or may not be required. Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.

    Thank you.

    Hello Mr Hobbs,

    My husband and I would like to arrange a meeting with you to help us with a couple of questions

    we have in regards to this process. We will be in Madison County during the last week of March.

    We were wondering if an appointment could be arranged sometime during that week, possibly

    Tuesday March 27, Wednesday March 28, or Thursday March 29.

    We appreciate your effort in this regards.

    Thank you for your attention,

    Anderson 180416

    From: Stacy Anderson [mailto:Stacy_Anderson1@msn.com] Sent: Monday, April 16, 2018 5:14 AM To: Jack Hobbs Subject: Inquiry Regarding Leathers Lane Road Maintenane Project and FOIA Request

    Dear Mr. Hobbs:

    I own a home in the Syria Mountain Estates subdivision, which is served by Leathers Lane. I recently received a letter from a neighbor, Jeanne Cerniglia, indicating that she was going to undertake “efforts to repair the [subdivision] road to a sound and safe condition” pursuant to VA Code Ann. § 55-50.3. You were copied on the letter, and so I am hoping that you have some information you can share.

    After contentious litigation over road maintenance and improvements, the Madison County Circuit Court recently ruled that Leathers Lane is a public road. The statute upon which Ms. Cerniglia relies provides that where a public road is no longer publicly maintained, “any one of the property owners may maintain, repair, or improve the road at his own expense without the express permission of the other property owners but only after administrative review by the local government.” VA Code Ann. § 55-50.3 (emphasis added).

    Although Ms. Ceniglia’s letter does not expressly indicate that Madison County has reviewed and approved her project, it suggests as much. Operating under the assumption that it has, I am writing to inquire about the review process and approval of Ms. Cerniglia’s project. To facilitate this request, I have attached a Freedom of Information Request Form seeking all documents related to Madison County’s administrative review of Ms. Cerniglia’s project, along with the policies and procedures that govern Madison County’s review under § 55- 50.3. I am happy to receive materials electronically, but I am also willing to pay for paper copies of the documents.

    The lot owners within Syria Mountain Estates have very different views of what should and needs to be done to “maintain” the now “public” road and others would like their views considered. There is a particular concern about removal of trees from the public right-of-way and the widening of what is now a single-lane road. Such changes have the potential to fundamentally alter the character of the subdivision.

    Moreover, I have many questions about the project and thus far Ms. Cerniglia has provided no information
