My question involves personal property located in the State of: PA
Hi all. Lets just start off with the fact that our neighbors do not like us, so they are calling the township on anything they can to get us in trouble. Back in 2015 my husband applied for a detached 30"x 50" garage for our yard. Our yard is 90"x 125" so we have the room. We have 1 trailer, 1 camper, 2 trucks (one being my husbands commercial truck), 1 quad, 1 skid-loader, 1 mini excavator, and a jeep. We applied for the garage because we are not allowed to park on the street because there is a fire hydrant in our front yard, so we wanted to keep everything contained, clean, and neat. Well, after fighting with our township for 2+ months we were denied for the permit for the garage because it "wouldn't fit in with the neighborhood". We now have everything parked in the yard (neatly, so it isn't an eye sore) and we are hearing that our neighbors are calling the township because we have a commercial vehicle and the skid-loader/excavator clearly visible. According to our township, the only way you can have a commercial vehicle and others is if it is in a garage. We do not have a homeowners society. We own this property. The commercial vehicle is for my husbands self owned excavating company that he is just starting up. He has no employees, so we don't have anywhere else to park them. We do not make noise, we just mind our own business. I just want to be one step ahead in case we start getting fines. There are many other houses in our township that have commercial vehicles and excavators without garages. And there are many houses in our township that have garages bigger than 30 x 50"
Any suggestions? Thanks for the input.
