RELATED: Wedding venue owner facing court charge: Miami Twp. has ‘no jurisdiction’
The township this spring issued a zoning violation citation to Darren Powlette for his operation at 7757 Upper Miamisburg Road. But Powlette contends townships “do not have the power to prohibit the use of land for ‘agritourism’,” documents show.
Powlette, 50, pleaded not guilty in Miamisburg Municipal Court in May to the misdemeanor criminal charge in connection with activities at the venue.
He is required to appear in court Aug. 13 for a pre-trial hearing, court records show. The charge stems from an incident on April 19, according to court records.
