Junkin overturns building permit



In a ruling issued on Wednesday, March 31 by 24th Judicial Circuit Judge Sam Junkin, a building permit issued by Fayette Fire Chief and Building Inspector Shannon Taylor was overturned. The case in question involved the placement of a manufactured home on a lot that was not zoned for manufactured homes. A variance is usually sought by the party seeking the permit, and in some cases, if the neighbors agree, the variance is allowed. In this instance, the permit was issued before a variance was sought.
