1) Delivery to the Building Inspector of an approved (by the NH Water Supply and Pollution Control Division) septic system design.

2) A certification by the manufacturer that the mobile home is either BOCA certified or meets or exceeds the federal standards issued for mobile home construction issued under and pursuant to 24 CFR 201.520, not earlier than twelve (12) months prior to the date such a temporary permit is issued.

She was born in Haverhill, Mass. on June 8, 1934, the daughter of the late George C.W. and Alta I. (Kimball) Haynes.
