The town is looking for a new lawyer to go after a nuisance property at 66 Horseshoe Lane

LYNDON — The town is looking for a new lawyer to go after a nuisance property at 66 Horseshoe Lane. The Select Board on Monday pulled the case from attorney Hanne Trudeau of St. Johnsbury due to a lack of action and communication. According to the Select Board and Town Administrator, Trudeau had ignored requests for status updates and had not responded to inquiries from town officials. After looking at the online court calendar, and finding no evidence that a case had even been filed, board member Nancy Blankenship recommended giving the case to a new prosecutor. The new attorney will proceed with a civil suit against property owner Kathleen Lyford, who has run a commercial chicken and compost operation at 66 Horseshoe Lane in violation of town bylaws for two years.
