LEHI, Utah — Lehi Farmer’s Market owner Dorothy Durant believes she has a right to do what she wants on her property, still, she is facing more than a dozen zoning violations.
According to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, Durant operates Lehi Farmer’s Market and allows people to park their RVs on the property.
“These RVs … most of them, if not none of them, are pulling their trailers off the property every week to dump out the sewage tanks,” said Sgt. Spencer Cannon. “That is a significant problem whether you have one person living in a trailer or half a dozen people living in a trailer.”
Cannon said Durant charges rent for the RVs that park on her property. As such, Durant conducts business transactions that must take public health into account.
“Trash that’s on the property, the safety concerns, the health concerns with sewage disposal — they’re major concerns for the neighbors,” Cannon said, “they are for us as well.”
By Tuesday, May 23, some of the RVs had left but many remained on the property. Durant could not be reached for comment.
