He wants the issue put to bed.
“Why do all these people have all this power over me?” Dudek asked. “I just want to be treated like everybody else. That’s all I want.”
Dudek has neighbors who support what he does.
Lee Leblanc, 58 Hall Road, lives directly across the street from the junkyard. For 35 years, he said, he has had no problem with that property.
“I’ve seen this go on and on,” Leblanc said. “I think it’s ridiculous. (Dudek) is trying to make a living, but he continues to go through this every year.”
Dudek said he’s doing his best to run a clean, successful business.
“I’m a good neighbor, I take care of my neighbors,” he said. “We’re always helping each other out all the time.”
Council Chairman John Farrell urged Dudek and the Adams to continue to work on a positive relationship moving forward. He said any further agreements or contention between the two parties would have to happen outside cCouncil chambers.
“I would love it if everything could work out,” he said. “Go forward and do the best you can.”
