When Josh opened his Wholesale Motorcars lot after leaving his lobbying job in 2015, he was allegedly found in violation of an ordinance requiring his business to have a permit, reported.

“We have one zoning designation in the county to allow single-family residential or agricultural uses. Anything else requires a conditional use permit to request a zoning change,” a planning official in Washington County told the site.

According to the official, Josh “basically” opened up a business without notifying anyone, and therefore, he failed to comply with basic business requirements, including: showing the address of the business on the building and entrance, having a smoke detector in the office, having a fire lane, having a minimum 20-foot driveway, and more.

As a result of his negligence, the county official claimed a fire marshal sent three 90-day notices to Josh saying he needed to “come into compliance.” “The fire marshal wasn’t going to issue any more extensions. He was requiring that Josh make a good faith attempt, or make effort, toward receiving a review and permit approval, so that’s what he did,” the official told Radar.

On Nov. 1, representatives for Josh finally attended a planning commission meeting to address the problem and agreed to request a conditional use permit as well as make the necessary changes to the property.
