The builder of a new subdivision is facing a $3,500 fine after an erosion problem upset an existing neighbor.

Clearing and grading work at the construction was the major culprit behind this.

But a testimony presented before a special magistrate at Lady Lake Town Hall blamed Heavy Rains for the erosion.

Earlier in the last year, JHMC was issued a stop work order for not securing safe measures like sod & hay bales.

Then looking at the previous violations, Special Magistrate Joshua Bills handed over a fine of $3,500  to the builder.
