DeKalb County is suing Steve Miller from Clarkeston for growing too many vegetables on his 2-acres on Cimarron Drive. The County seeks more than $5,000 in fines for code violations for growing too many crops for the zoning and having unpermitted employees on site. Mr. Miller successfully rezoned his property to allow him to continue his fifteen year local farming, but the County wants its money and will face off with Mr. Miller later this month in Court.
Mr. Miller plans to fight the County and his neighbors have rallied around him.
“When he moved here and I found out what he was doing I said, ‘Steve, you’re the best thing that ever happened to Cimarron Drive. And I still say that,” said neighbor Britt Fayssoux.
