Gates claims Wellington estate was “never out of compliance”
Bill Gates is facing a lien and big fines on his Wellington equestrian estate over a manure holding tank. But according to a Gates spokesperson, it is all a big misunderstanding.
The spokesperson told Gossip Extra that Gates’ people are working on the problem with Wellington officials and that the problem boils down to a paperwork mix-up.
Gates has received more than $40,000 in fines since July.
“When the Gates family purchased the home in Wellington, they immediately had the storage bin moved to be in compliance with local laws,” the spokesperson said. “Yesterday, the Gates family learned that the related paperwork was not filed properly. This administrative oversight is unfortunate, but I want to reiterate that the Gates’ home was never out of compliance.” [Gossip Extra] – Christopher Cameron
