            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Madison County, Coleman McAllister, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by May, P.J., and Greer and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Chicchelly, J.  (11 pages)

            A landowner appeals from the denial of his petition for writ of mandamus.  OPINION HOLDS: We find no error of law in the district court’s decision to deny the petition for writ of mandamus, grant summary judgment with respect to the county attorney, or exclude the agency letter from evidence.  Therefore, we affirm the district court’s ruling in each of these respects.
