GLUCKSTADT — The owner of Capital Body Shop received approval from county supervisors Monday night to change fence material at their new location on Autobahn Loop here, but they were denied a height change.

Doug White said the fence originally was supposed to be a concrete fence but he asked permission to change to a polymer fence because it was more economical.

White said the fence looks nice and can withstand 70 mile-per-hour winds.

Supervisors agreed the fence looked nice but questioned how tall the fence would be.

White said the fence would be seven feet, but District 2 Supervisor Trey Baxter said that wasn’t what was recommended for approval by the Planning & Zoning Department.

“They approved six feet tall,” White said.

Baxter responded, “I think it was eight. We got to stick with an eight-foot fence guys.”

According to February 2017 P&Z minutes, no height requirement was listed, but White was asked to get permission from the board regarding the fence.

The April 3 supervisors’ minutes show the request was approved at eight feet.

On Monday, supervisors granted the material change but maintained the eight-foot requirement.
