The Webster Groves City Council conducted a special teleconference meeting during an administrative hearing tribunal on Friday regarding a home-based business in the city.
The tribunal decided to postpone a public hearing in which it would consider revoking the business licence of T. Carder Lawn Care, which is located at 336 Oak Tree Dr. in Webster Groves. The company has a license to operate as a home-based business.
Mike Harney, the city's building commissioner, told Patch that since 2001, the city has received eight complaints regarding storage and use of equipment, employees coming to the site, noise and owner/occupancy. Some were identified as violations and cited as such, he said. Others were unfounded.
More recent complaints sparked the need for the hearing, which will now be held either the second or third week of July, Harney said.
"Some thought it was too soon after the business received complaints to come to a decision," he said. "That's why the hearing has been postponed."
Teresa Carder, the business owner, did not return a reporter's phone call.
