Palisade Man Protests Over Land Rights

By  | 

Jim Sterling is protesting the Mesa County Commissioners decision that his wood chopping business is illegal because of zoning conditions.

It all starts with a neighbors complaint that Jim Sterling's business is too noisy and too close. The case went before the Mesa County Commissioners a couple weeks ago where they ruled against Sterling.

The Commissioners say they have given Sterling several chances to keep his business. But Sterling argues he was never given the opportunity. Sterling said that he is protesting to stand up for his rights as a land owner. The Mesa County Commissioners who are aware of the protest, are sticking to the law of the land.

The protest will take place Friday morning at the Old County Court House on Rood Avenue at 8 a.m.
