The Maury County Fee has selected to take action against the operator of a Culleoka residence that has remained in violation of the region’s zoning ordinance for a lot more than two many years.

The fee voted 18-3 in approval that legal action be taken by the community governing administration during its assembly held past month.

The county’s zoning division argues the house, found on Dodson Hole Street in rural Culleoka, is zoned A-2, or a rural household district. On the other hand, the property is described by commissioners as a salvage yard, with a lot of inoperable motor vehicles positioned on the house.

A private property in rural Culleoka has fallen under scrutiny by the Maury County Office of Building and Zoning for large number of inoperable vehicles scattered across the property.

“I have built attempts to take out cars and trucks from the property and defend things from watch,” assets proprietor Amos L. Riddle told the commissioners all through the assembly.

Riddle, who does not stay on the house, said the land is valued at $200,000.

He shared issues that it would price tag him $500 to have the property regarded for a rezoning.

“I never concur with the rule,” Riddle stated, arguing that other counties in Tennessee offer “exclusionary zoning” for motor motor vehicle collectors such as himself.

“I have to shell out $500 just to question the concern,” Riddle explained.

Amos L. Riddle speaks before the Maury County Commission  in defense of his property in Culleoka.

All through a prior community assembly,  Riddle claimed he was specific, and argued that the county unfairly only investigates instances if a complaint has been filed by a member of the general public.

Maury County Director of Zoning Robert Caldiraro earlier verified the department does examine conditions by complaint.

Riddle instructed commissioners that filing a lawsuit would “only infringe” on his suitable to “own and possess property.”
