Ore. Shop Closed for Used Tire Violation

A Central Point, Ore., tire shop found in violation of local and state laws for accumulating nearly 1,500 used tires was recently closed after the property owner failed to fix what city officials declared an eyesore and a public safety risk.

The owner of Dan and Joyce’s Tires, which according to county records is Joyce Carrell, will be billed $3,800 for cleanup of the site, according to local reports. Under state law, a tire business can have up to 100 tires on site at any given time.

City officials initially ordered cleanup of the site by June 30. An extension was later granted, giving the owners until September to remove the mess. When that didn’t happen, the city stepped in to clean up the site.

The shop could reopen if the owner, who lives in a house on the property, wants to, according to city officials. If the shop were rented out, modifications would be needed, such as the addition of water service, the reports said. If another tire business opens there, regulations on tire storage would be more strictly enforced.

Local officials told the Mail Tribune the property owner is a woman in her 80s. "If she ever wants to sell the property we would expect the bill to be paid at that time. If she wanted to rent it to another business, some changes would have to be made to the property,” an official told the paper.

According to city records, the store was previously run by Daniel Carrell, who passed away in January 2009.
