Sheridan bed and breakfast case to Supreme Court

Posted:

Rob Bernard says he's spent tens of thousands of dollars in court costs.

Bernard co-owns the Residence Hill Bed and Breakfast in Sheridan with his wife Bev. It opened in 2012 and has drawn numerous complaints from neighbor Tim Tarver, who lives less than a block away.

"It's been primarily him. Now and again he'll get a petition going and get a couple of people to sign. He was worried about the traffic and the parking on the adjacent street. We've paved our backyard and so now none of our guests ever park in the street," said Bernard.

Tarver refused to comment on the story, but in court documents he claims the city did not do its due diligence in approving Bernard's business and will argue in front of the Wyoming State Supreme Court on Wednesday.

He told the city's board of adjustments the business would bring in overly loud and disreputable guests. The board dismissed the claim as pure speculation. Since then Tarver is the only neighbor to complain about the business.

"We've only heard active complaints tied to this particular lawsuit and this particular property owner. We haven't had any of the other residents in that area that have chosen to complain directly to the city," said planning and economic development director Robert Briggs.

Bernard doubts a State Supreme Court ruling in his favor would bring closure.

"Our neighbor up the hill has made it clear that it's never going to be over," said Bernard.

Bernard also says he filed a restraining order against Tarver because he was taking pictures of the Bernards in their home and their guests.
