DOCK DEBACLE-SOTVO


Sot Matt Uhle, property owner's lawyer

The other residents out there who have docks don't have butted lots

either, they're separated by siesta drive, so from a legal perspective

their docks present the same issue that my clients did but they got

docks and my client didn't."

DOCUMENTS SHOW, IF THE DOCK GOES UNAPPROVED - THE PROPERTY OWNER IS REQUESTING HALF A MILLION DOLLAR REIMBURSEMENT.

LEE COUNTY'S ATTORNEY IS RECOMMENDING COMMISSIONERS APPROVE THE DOCK AT THEIR NEXT MEETING. Return to index of stories...
