FINES HIT $5,000 FOR MAINE HOMEOWNER WITH YARD FULL OF JUNK

Duane-Pollis-Hoarder

Wilton town officials are seeking $100 per day from Duane Pollis for piles of scrap that he says have ‘a purpose.’

Town officials are seeking more than $5,000 in mounting fines from a property owner accused of refusing to clean up piles of scrap and junk in his front yard. The homeowner, Duane Pollis, said the new minimum upkeep ordinance is unfair for ordering him what to do on his property.

Pollis was served with the paperwork from the case Oct. 31. According to the summons, he had 20 days to respond in writing to the town’s complaint against him. The case will be decided in Franklin County Court in Farmington. He said he has not responded to the town about the case because he feels they will not be able to find a resolution.

Everything in his yard, he said, from the old cars to the five-gallon buckets to the scrap metal, is something he intends to use, recycle or resell. He disagrees with the town ordinance about what he is allowed to do on his property. “I won’t cater to them,” he said. “I have a purpose for everything I bring here.”
