In the first in a series of hot topics from this issue we read:
Cease-and-Desist Letters Fail to Stop Work on Eyesore in Ogden Canyon
From the article,
The wall was built without the required permits from the Weber County Planning Office. According to (Iris) Hennon, two "Cease-and-desist letters" were delivered - one to the contractor, and the other to the Perry Family Foundation; the first letter went to the contractor on December 7 and the second on December 14 to representatives of the Peery Family Foundation who live across the river behind the newly constructed was. The letters failed to stop the work on the fence, which has almost been completed - despite the cease-and-desist orders.Surveyors have been seen near the site in recent weeks but as recently as this afternoon work was continuing on the unpermitted eyesore.
Will this be another case of the County Commissioners slapping the hands of the Peery family in a classic 'ask for forgiveness rather than permission' case?
Our bet is yes.
