Bill Gates is facing a lien for building an illegal horse-waste storage facility on his Wellington horse farm. The village is fining him $500 a day until he destroys it and applies for a permit to rebuild.

Moreover, a lien filed on the Mallet Hill area property, located at at 3155 Mallet Hill Court, gives the village the right to foreclose on it, according to Gossip Extra.

A village special magistrate began fining Gates July 18, after the facility was not fixed for more than a year.

Gates has racked up $40,000 in daily fines so far – chump change considering that Gates is worth roughly $81 billion. Gates paid $8.7 million for the property. [Gossip Extra]Christopher Cameron
