Last week a municipal judge in Kaukauna ordered a resident to remove his antique red tractor from his front lawn, the city gave him 72 hours to move it or he could appeal to a higher court.
Joe Grundy has elected to fight this decision just like he did eleven years ago, today he appealed his case to the Outagamie County Circuit Court so in the mean time the tractor will stay until the litigation ends.
A city ordinance states that that residents can’t have vehicles in the front yard, however Grundy claims the tractor is art and part of his landscaping on a very patriotic home.
Local 5 reached out to city officials, the city attorney’s office had no comment, the mayor did not return our calls, but a month ago the building inspector did tell us that there have been complaints in regards to the tractor.
Grundy feels like there are more important issues that the city should be focusing on, but he has shown no signs of giving in.
He told Local 5 that he has called the Governor’s office and sent a tweet to President Donald Trump, in addition Grundy tells us he plans on running for mayor in the spring.
