More wedding venue drama in the county

Kirby and Billy can you help?


Dear friends, we have noticed a petition circulating on Facebook whose subject is yet another wedding venue with zoning woes.  We are very surprised that we have heard nothing about the issues facing this vendor at any recent council meetings.

Here is the petition

We are going to admit that when reading this we had a few thoughts about why Shrelauter hasn’t brought this to the council’s attention. Keep in mind these are just guesses and as far as we know they are not facts.

  • Complaining neighbors are friends with # and/or Billy
  • Owners of said venue are not registered Republicans
  • Maybe Billy and Kirby just aren’t aware of this issue

We really don’t know much about this whole thing, but it seems unusual that they haven’t brought this up as a shining example of how the county is closed for business. Seeing as how #Kirby has been actively advocating that businesses sue the county for unfair treatment this silence is puzzling. Of course, it seems like this issue predates the charter government so perhaps that is the real issue. Or is this a real issue and they are only the champions of the lost cause? Enquiring minds want to know.

  1. The remedy for a disenchanted wedding venue operator or anyone else who deems themselves aggrieved by an error in the administration of the zoning ordinance is a timely (usually 30 days) appeal to the County’s Board of Zoning Appeals (“BOA”). It would seem that Engedi either took an appeal to the BOA and lost, or didn’t avail itself of that remedy at all. While Engedi is free to exert political, lobbying and public relations pressure on County zoning officials to DISREGARD existing regulations, those officials are not free to yield to such pressure. Engedi’s efforts might be more effective if directed to the County Council to CHANGE the applicable laws.
