Car business owner appeals


Even with the license, the city claims, the property is not zoned for Walker to operate as a vehicle recycler.  

To do so in Clinton, Walker would need a special use permit from the city, which there is no record of Walker having. The property also doesn’t meet the requirements for the special permit and salvage operations are not allowed in the Liberty Square area under the Liberty Square Overlay Zone ordinance, Harmon argued.  

Because his business was an existing structure when the Liberty Square Overlay Zone was put in place, Walker claims he is exempt from the requirements.
