KIRKSVILLE, MO. -- Brashear House Bed and Breakfast owner Tiffany Platte lost her Special Use Permit after a vote by Kirksville City Council Monday night because she has a gravel driveway. And Tuesday, she was told she could no longer operate her business during what she says is a busy time of year.
KTVO asked Platte what she thinks about other businesses in town that don't have hard-surfaced parking.
Platte tells us she does not think the city is willing to work with her but the community has been nothing but helpful.
“I would really like to thank all of my neighbors and the community that stood behind me and has supported me with all of their thoughts and prayers. It has just been a tremendous blessing to see the community really support me as they have. And we do hope that this can be resolved as quickly as possible and that I can be back and running with in the legal limits within the law as soon as possible,” says Platte.
