Commissioners take aim at flew market

 March 19, 2007

Dougherty County -- An illegal business is junking up part of Dougherty County, and Commissioners want it shut down.  

Commissioner Jack Stone says someone has set up a flea market at the corner of Holley Drive and Mock Road, but the owner doesn't have a business license. In addition, he says it looks bad, and wants it shut down.

Assistant County Administrator Thomas Thomas says the operators are smart, only selling when they know code enforcement officers aren't working. "I think they were hoping because it's such in an off direction that nobody would catch notice of it. I don't know how long they've been operating, but luckily commissioner Stone brought it to our attention and we're going to try to clean it up."  

After two attempts to have the operators clean up the site, the county served notice to bring them to court. A date has not been set.
