-Property located at XXX, adjacent to his business, was sold and new owners, A 2 Z Towing, are using it as a junk yard and car towing lot. Elizabeth Link has talked to City code enforcement. A Notice of Violation was issued when half the building burned down. A 2 Z is clearing and cleaning up the lot. To use it as a salvage yard, owner will have to apply for a variance from the Board of Adjustment because the lot is less than five acres and less than 300 linear feet from residential use. If he gets approval, he will have to do landscape improvements that are required of a salvage yard. She suggested that adjacent business owner call 336-373-CITY and speak with Tonya Rumley.
