July 4, 2018

Back in May of this year, TWG sent out a blog about several violations being allowed by Shane Sealy, who is over Code Enforcement.  One was the Peach State K-9 Kennel on Hwy 212 W near Larry’s 4 Way.  Violations that we knew of included no permits, a large sign on the ROW, and no business license.  Additionally, per county code, a kennel is not allowed on residentially zoned property.

After our blog, Sealy promptly sent an article to the paper stating that he was keeping a watch on this business and denied any problems.  According to documents obtained from an open records request, the real problem was Sealy; he was keeping citations from being issued by the code enforcement officer and allowing the owner to operate without a license since he was first cited in January 2018.

On May 31, 2018, the State Department of Agriculture came in and shut the kennel down, basically for the filthy conditions the dogs were living in.

When the State inspector came, there were only four dry dog pens.  Along with the drainage issues, there was mud, feces, urine, flies, and solid waste violations.

How would you like to board your dog in a place like this?  (And there are many other pictures this bad.) 

Either Sealy does not know the laws or willfully ignores them.  Either the County BOC and the County Manager choose to look the other way or they are allowing Sealy to pick and choose who he will cite and fine.

 This case will be in Magistrate Court on Friday, July 6.  We will be interested to see how the Magistrate Judge handles this case and if Sealy sends a recommendation to reduce the fine or have the case dismissed.


Citizens, be informed and stay informed!  Only by being informed, can the citizens understand what is being done and talked about, and then press our officials to make good decisions for everyone in Jasper County.  That is our goal with the Taxdogs blog.

    Just another example of How the World Turns here in Jasper County. Just amazing the crap we have to accept when there are already codes on the books. You can bet before I could build a shop and start the work I had to pay a permit fee and have inspections. Most employees who can’t perform in any other arenas find something else to do. Just saying.

    Agree with all the previous comments!

  3. Why Continue The Farce ? says:

    P&Z has always a worthless unnecessary department and Sealy is no more dumb nor susceptible to corrupting influence than any of the other bottom feeders that has occupied the office of P&Z. Shut it down already and refund the money stolen from the taxpayers used to fund this joke of a county department.

  4. Watching with despair says:

    I find this deeply concerning. So many violations and dirty pens. Who is to say this facility won’t become a puppy mill? Mr Sealy seems to be on a mission to allow illegal and poorly run “businesses” to continue in this County. I would be happy to see him replaced.

  5. sick & tired says:

    I heard Shane has had a problem doing his job before. Maybe it is time to let him go.

    Sickening. I am so sick of the corruption and those who allow it.
