A Southbury zoning official will not face charges as a result of allegedly threatening and intimidating a town business owner.
The Republican-American is reporting that assistant building and zoning enforcement officer Paul Liphardt was cleared when a judge refused to sign a warrant to charge Liphardt with breach of peace.
Liphardt reportedly got into a confrontation with the business owner in March and at the beginning of April.
In a , resident and former selectman Carol Renza called Southbury officials an "incompetent town hall gang." Renza made the comment in reference to First Selectman Bill Davis' failure to reprimand Liphardt, who Renza said already has three strikes against his credibility.
