During an appeal hearing Monday, the Hailey City Council upheld a nuisance complaint relating to a property at 308 N. Second Ave.

According to city records, Hailey police served a nuisance abatement notice on Daniel T. Henry on June 6, claiming that an accumulation of junk, building supplies and unfinished buildings, as well as “hazardous” substances constitute a nuisance to the neighborhood.

“The property … has a long history of nuisance complaint citations,” a city memo states.

Henry appealed the city’s decision that he had a nuisance on his property within the allowed 15-day period.

The City Council voted to support Hailey Police Officer Steve England’s administrative decision that nuisance issues exist on the premises.

Henry now could face a misdemeanor action for failing to abate a nuisance, City Attorney Chris Simms said in an interview. If Henry is convicted, he could face a fine of up to $1,000 and/or imprisonment in the county jail for up to six months.

When reached for comment, Henry said he had “no statement.”
