New Boston’s Code Enforcement Officer, Mr. Hunter, is leaving town. I never got a chance to meet him. For a guy who is supposed to be in charge of carrying out a court order to clean up a junkyard in town, he sure has been scarce. What gives?

Here is what New Boston is looking for in the way of a replacement:

(New Boston wants a background check for a new COE? What a laugh.)

Guess who is helping New Boston find a new CEO? If you guessed PRIMEX, the town insurance company, you would be in on the joke. PRIMEX must be providing insurance for the uninsured contractor the town hired, without a contract or time frame, to strip Duke’s Garage of his livelihood.

John Winslow had a time frame to clean up his property – but the contractor doesn’t?
