There are actually 7 neighbors on that page that have filed a protest not 4.

"Actually," thanks for keeping us honest, but when the article was posted at 7:03 am there were only four listed on the Water Rights web site. (Jeffs, Nass, Johnson and Granath). Now there are seven complainants.

Valley, I didn't mean to step on any toes, I apologize. I did not realize this was posted at 7:03 AM (as my email notification of the article wasn't until 2:24 PM). Thank you for pointing that out.

Found some more info said...

So, it looks like there are some other people that have sent in some letters but didn't pay the $15 fee.

Check out these links:

(Shows all mailed in items)

If those who didn't pay the $15 go down and pay it today will they allow them to be filed as a protest instead of a letter of concern?
