County to hear nuisance appeal

Peter and Lucy Campos have appealed Yakima County's view that their property at 990 Woodin Road just outside of Sunnyside is a public nuisance.

Vern Redifer, the county's public services director, said officials in his department consider 990 Woodin Road to be a nuisance "relative to our belief there are persons illegally occupying an outbuilding on the property".

Lucy Campos said her family uses the building, which she called a "little house", for storage. She said her son slept just once in the building when he came to visit.

Following the Campos' appeal, Yakima County commissioners yesterday, Tuesday, agreed to set an appeal hearing time of 10:30 a.m. for Tuesday, Oct. 10, just after commissioners conclude their weekly agenda meeting.

The appeal hearing will be held in the commissioners' hearing room at the county courthouse.
