THERE’S SOMETHING OF A LEGAL SHOWDOWN TAKING PLACE BETWEEN A GRANTS PASS HOME BUSINESS AND THE CITY. AFTER A NEIGHBOR’S COMPLAINT, THE CITY DECIDED TO REVOKE THE BUSINESS PERMIT FROM WILD RIVER CUSTOM MEAT CUTTING, A MOM AND POP OUTFIT THAT OPERATES BEHIND A HOUSE OFF OF THE WILLIAMS HIGHWAY. THE NEIGHBOR LODGED COMPLAINTS OF NOISE, TRAFFIC AND ODORS. ON ADVICE FROM THEIR LAWYER, THE MEAT CUTTER HAS RESUMED BUSINESS, UNTIL A HEARING WITH THE URBAN AREA PLANNING COMMISSION.

IN THE MEANTIME, THE CITY DOES MAINTAIN THAT THE BUSINESS HAS OUTGROWN ITS MINOR HOME BUSINESS PERMIT, AND CAN EITHER RELOCATE, OR PUT IN FOR A MAJOR HOME BUSINESS PERMIT IF THEY WISH TO STAY WHERE THEY ARE.
