Rowe stated the Ordi- nance was not passed until after the parcel split and suggested changing the ordinance if granting this application. Tipton stated that items found by Building Inspector need to be corrected be- fore approval of license. Inspector Fontaine stat- ed that one item, not listed on his application, is the water quality is not allowable for drink- ing.
