Mixed results in new van case

More than half of 20 new charges town of Pulaski filed against a van business and its owner in February were dismissed Wednesday at the request of the town’s attorney.

Spencer Rygas asked Pulaski County General District Court Judge Erin DeHart to dismiss, with the option to reinstate, 11 inoperable vehicle warrants filed Feb. 19 against Kevin Lindamood. A hearing was continued until Oct. 28 for nine other improper land use citations filed against Lindamood’s Route 11 business, VuhVanagon LLC.

Rygas declined to comment on the case. Lindamood, represented by attorneys, was not present for the matter.

VuhVanagon was convicted by DeHart in November of violating town land use regulations by storing vans on property along Route 11 at the Northwood Drive intersection. The company’s attorney, Alicha Grubb, immediately appealed the conviction to circuit court.

At that time Rygas indicated both sides entered into a Memorandum of Understanding as to what had to be done to bring the business into compliance with land use regulations. Lindamood was given until Aug. 15 to comply.

However, even with a two-month extension resulting from continuances, DeHart said the business failed to perform the required actions.

The appeal is set for July 15 in circuit court.
