Don Scholz got a letter that his large gravel driveway was a city code violation. He said it was like that when he bought the home four years ago.
“We’ve done nothing but fix up the place since we bought it,” he said. He has replaced the roof and built a new garage, all with the proper city permits. No one said a word about the driveway until now.
“It should have been addressed long before I bought it,” Scholz said. “I am not trying to cheat the neighborhood, but it’s the way the house was when I moved in. I can understand why they have rules, but it’s a weird deal.”
Paving it would cost between $10,000 and $20,000. Scholz said he’s working with the city on a solution.
