Neighbor to Cops: Stop 'Illegal' Lemonade Stand

Neighbor to Cops: Stop 'Illegal' Lemonade Stand
Posted August 25th, 2014 @ 8:23am by Neal Colgrass, Newser Staff

(NEWSER) – Nothing like an entrepreneurial kid running a lemonade stand on the lawn—unless you're his angry neighbor, that is. Doug Wilkey of Dunedin, Fla., has been complaining for two years about 12-year-old TJ Guerrero's lemonade stand next door, Gawker reports. Wilkey emailed City Hall several times and reached out to law enforcement, saying the "illegal" enterprise is causing too much noise, traffic, illegal parking, and excess garbage, all of which lowers his property value:

  • "If this were a once a year event by a couple kids to earn a little money for a holiday or something, I would not have a problem with it," he wrote in an email. "I am very worried about the value of my home, which is why I built in a residential area, not a business area."
