    It is sickening that individuals such as these two feel that rules and regulations do not apply to them and that they can ignore them with impunity. Only financial penalties seem to deter them and only after they ignore them. Who needs them and their dodgy enterprise ?

      And they’ll probably get off the hook by paying the minimum… they should be forced to pay the 1.5 million. I’m sure that they made twice that…. sad.

    I appreciate your article on the Hudson Valley Retreat violations. These kind of abuses need to be spotlighted and publicized. I hope you do a follow up in the Explorer regarding resolution. Great job!

    My biggest concern is that a neighbor had to file a complaint to get the attention of the APA. No other watchdogs?
