RE: Demand Letter
We have spoken twice regarding my concerns about the City of Keene being out of compliance with RSA 339:22. When we last spoke you said that I should go to the New Hampshire General Court about this statute, as in your opinion the law was out-dated.
The New Hampshire General Court has had ample opportunity to amend RSA 339:22 since its original enactment in 1873. The General Court being unwilling to repeal the law in question for the last 139-years indicates a stern commitment to safe oil-lamp usage.
I request that you instruct the Keene City Council to comply with RSA 339:22. Failure of the City to swiftly move into compliance with RSA 339:22 will result in my requesting a Writ of Mandamus in the Cheshire County Superior Court.
Please do the right thing and comply with the law.
