Kniesel's Auto Collision is a Stinky Neighbor

When the Board of Supervisors denied the Special Use Permit because they did not want an auto collision facility in such close proximity to a residence, the Kniesels sued the County.  The BOS decided it would be too costly to defend their decision in court and instead approved the Special Use Permit.  Now paint fumes drift into the adjacent residential property and there has been no progress made to stop them.

Please boycott Kniesel's.  Do not give them any business that would send paint fumes into adjacent residences.
