Citizen Plans Lawsuit Against City
At the last Council meeting, Parker Rd. resident and frequent "Publix" critic (aka The Shoppes at Fairhope Village) Paul Ripp said he plans to sue the city-- for mistakes he alleges were made during the development of the project (building height, landscaping violations etc.). Ripp cited "no accountability" and that despite his numerous complaints over the last 11 months, "the city (has been) totally moot." "I plan on pursuing a lawsuit immediately . . . you won't be hearing from me from now on," Ripp concluded. According to recently released records, the city has incurred over $3 million in legal fees since 2006.
