    So what was the point of the court date? How much money are you out now? Why would you set up another date? I doubt they would show up for a different date either :( it just shows how much they don't care.

    Somehow, in my thinking, when you are subpoenaed to court, you have to appear or there will be penalties.

    Gee, after reading the results of the city council meeting, I'm glad that I left Fitchburg. These city councilors have their heads in the sand or somewhere else.

    The reason for the 2nd court date is; that is how our judicial system works "The Bad Guy" gets a 2nd chance to come and plead their case. I am out 6 tons of pellets 2hours of work and $40 in court cost. Oh an not to mention the ton of pellets I had to buy andthe ton I have to buy this wkd. Yes it has been a cold winter and especially when I have to worry about how many bags do I have left.
    What really burns me is Sept. 26th when I stopped by their place to ck on status of pellets I ordered an additional 2 ton for only $10 more than Grand Opening price! No one said anything about production, bagging, delivery, or machinery problems.
    I hope that I do have my day in court to tell my story.

    Sorry to hear about all the hassle your having, it's too bad they didn't just give you the judgement, because CB couldn't bother to show up. They most likely won't show for the second one either. I don't think there is anything anyone can do that is going to make CB accountable, and they are still selling pellets (in NH) to people that don't have a clue has to what's going on. I think their week is up for their new machine to be up and running, so what's the new story???????????????

    The sad thing also about this whole ordeal is we were there and they took our order before all the yahoo went on they didn't even think to have receipts ready to write out! We did get one though. We were also invited back for the gig later on in the day. I guess our money paid for that too!
    OH SHAWN SHAME ON YOU HOW DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT? I sleep with a slight chill in the room.

    Then its an eithical conflict of interest, and the concillor should recuse himself/herself from the discussion and leave the room. As for attending, anyone can attend the meeting, but Im not sure you'd have a voice unless you were a Fitchburg resident.

    That's what I thought, you can go and witness the meeting, as it is an open meeting, but most likely only residents of Fitchburg can speak; as it is their tax dollars subsidizing that "company."

    I to agree that he should not have a vote, but the fact that this happened is great, as it brings more light to the effect that the company simply doesn't give a rats ass who it is lieing too, and that they really do have major issues with how they are taking advantage of their customer base.

    He should recuse himself from voting, however he does have a right to speak as a citizen of Fitchburg.

    It seems everyone is more concerned about about the counciler than how Shawn has screwed people. I would think the councilors would let anyone speak because the company is a reflection on what people think about Fitchburg. Second the City councilors actually can not recind the tax credit, only the mayor can, so the meeting will be more of a chance vent your anger. Hopefully some people will show up, if not Shawn will have the last laugh.

    Has anyone considered that using wood pallets for wood pellets is not really a good idea. These pallets are from local factory's. Some might be OK, but others are soak with chemicals. No Thankyou

    No additives??? Right

    The ton of pellets I received back in Oct. might have been made from old pallets. What ever they used to make them was not good material. I am still finding remains in my stove from the hard clumping ash the pellets formed once burned. I have cleaned my stove 2 times from their pellets. The pellets had a really bad chemical smell to them.

    I agree fundamentally, but, if you call the state Ethics Board, you will find that a member, after recusing themselves, has to leave and not take part in the discussion, as expressions and comments of this recused person could sway the other members of the board, especially if the member recusing themselves is a "stong" member....the only way to take part in the discussion would be for the member to resign their post.

    You guys are unbelievable. The councilor has consulted the City lawyer and will do as he recommends. Sounds like you bloggers have completly lost sight of why they are having this meeting!!!!!!!!!!unbelieveable

    not at all, but out of fairness, a voting member shouldnt compromise where ethics are concerned, otherwise he/she could open up the town to litigation and/or invlaidate any vote.
