HUSTONVILLE - Litigation is being reluctantly considered against Hustonville by a trailer owner who claims city zoning prosecution against him shows selective enforcement of the law.
"There's several people in violation, not just me, so why single me out?" asked trailer owner David Couch at Tuesday's City Council meeting.
According to Couch, the location of his new trailer behind the old gas station on Danville Avenue was approved by Mayor Larry "Pup" Doss as well as several neighbors. The trailer's lot, however, does not meet the 15,000 square footage requirements and does not have an adequate sewage system.
A letter sent to County Building Inspector Rhonda Gooch Brown, signed by Doss, said the lot in question is inside the city limits. With the city declining to join countywide planning and zoning, any land inside the city limits does not fall under the county's zoning ordinances.
