(LAGRANGE) - The LaGrange County Commissioners affirmed their order in a nuisance case Monday morning and imposed $3,400 in fines against Gene Neeley.
The Commissioners re-convened a nuisance hearing after giving Neeley another 60 days to remove junk from his property at 3445 South County Road 1145 East in Elmira.
Neeley says he has been cleaning the property, but county officials say most of the that activity took place in the last two weeks and items still remain outside the fence, which is falling down in places.
Commissioner Terry Martin made the motion to affirm the order and fines.
The Commissioners voted 2-1, with Dennis Kratz opposed, to impose the fines against Neeley at the rate of $200 per week retroactive to July 31st.
They asked county staff for an update on the situation at their December 28th meeting.
