FLDS permits expired
Published: Thursday, January 31st, 2013
The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) compound in southwest Custer County has been delivered a cease and desist letter from the Custer County Sheriff’s Office, ordering the FLDS to halt construction until it obtains building permits that are current.
At the Jan. 30 meeting of the Custer County Commission, county planning director David Green told the commission of the letter that was being sent to the FLDS compound. Green said the permits the FLDS were issued have expired and need to be either updated or extended before work continues at the site. Green also recommended the commission stipulate that planning be allowed on the site to verify construction.
Green said members of the FLDS heard about the letter and came to his office to say they would submit in writing the status of the projects they are working on, as well as an application to have their permits resubmitted or extended.
“I think because of public interest, we should make sure they are current,” Green said. Green said many building permits are extended, and most residents come to the planning office to extend their permits once they expire.
