TAMPA, Fla. – If not for the loud parties, the owner of a $2 million mansion north of downtown Tampa might have continued operating a training school for strippers next door to an exclusive gated community.
The Tampa Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1aw4mb1 ) the all-night, liquor-fueled celebrations, complete with booming stereos and screaming women, drew complaints from neighbors.
The mansion's owner and manager were hit with code violations. The manager also was accused of violating the county's noise ordinance, but the charge was dismissed.
The owner told the newspaper he has ceased all commercial activity at the 12,000-square-foot house.
County officials want to make sure the violations don't recur. Representatives from Code Enforcement and the sheriff's office will meet Thursday with a county commissioner to discuss whether further action is necessary.
