Jon can forward you both applications. The first application that we
approved on Friday, October 14th was rescinded the following week with a
new application with new signatures and requesting additional items not
on the original application, such as open flame to cook and heat with on
the site. These factors and the liability insurance are the main
factors for no approved permit at this time. It is my understanding
that the Occupy Asheville group will ask the fees be waived if they
decide to stay in this location. They paid the $25 application fee (in
pennies). Jeff has the most updated information in case I missed

I know Tom said he was going to email you on this too, but...
I need to know whose name is on the Occupy Asheville permit. I talked to
a man today down there that said his was but I thought a woman said on
TV the other day she had the permit. I just need to confirm for a story
we are going to run first thing tomorrow., so I need to know today.
Also the man said he had not heard that they would be asking for the
city to pick up the permit fees. He said he was in the meetings with the
city and doesn't recall that being said. The memorandum from Jeff
Richardson says that will be asked for tomorrow at the Council meeting.
So I need to know who said they'd ask for that.
