The Town of Essex has entered a “Cease and Desist Order” against John Molloy, III, the owner of 194 Saybrook Road in Essex, dated November 25. The town charges that Malloy violated Town of Essex Zoning Regulations, section 115A,   for, 1) “The presence of debris and waste material.” and, 2) “The presence of a commercial truck trailer on the property.”

The Town of Essex’s “Order to Discontinue Violations” noted, “This Order follows four Notice of Violations and numerous phone calls since 2011. To this day it has been noticed that a minimal effort has gone into relieving the situation of clearing the property of the commercial vehicle trailer and debris.”

The town further noted, “The property must be cleaned up to a point where this Order may be removed. The trailer must be removed immediately.”

The Order then threatened the owner with “addition actions [if remedial actions are not taken] … that may result in an enforcement action seeking injunctive orders of the Supreme Court, attorney’s fees, costs and civil penalties as authorized by the zoning regulations sections 150D and 150E as well as Connecticut General Statutes Section 8-12.”

Efforts to reach property owner, John Malloy, III, were unsuccessful.
