Burton Hoey vs. Everyone

 

continued

Bredell, Hoey's attorney, predicts that both the bathroom and straw maze issues should be resolved by next spring. And since Jenny's is a seasonal business that shuts down most operations after Halloween, that suits Hoey just fine.

It's unlikely to appease the township. Asked if Jenny's is a public nuisance, Kingsley replies, "Only certain aspects. It could be a great business, but right now it's the most egregious business we have. Having people parking on the road surface, putting signs out into the county road right-of-way--these things can't go on. But we're not trying to put him out of business. We're just trying to get him to abide by the same rules as everyone else."

The Humane Society of Huron Valley wants the same thing. It's been receiving complaints about Hoey's treatment of his animals for many years. "We're quite familiar with Mr. Hoey," says Matt Schaecher, its director of animal cruelty investigation and rescue. "He's been a regular stop for us for some time."
