Jessups Falls review begins


Jessup Falls Escarpment. RichardMakush of the OMB chaired the Wednesday morning session, listening to legal counsel for both the United Counties of Prescott-Russell (UCPR) and others listed as participants and interested parties in the case. “It seems obvious that we need another pre-hearing conference,” saidMakush, after the first hour of listening to various legal counsels bring up concerns about both their clients’ issues and also questions from the gallery about legal procedure for the OMB review.
