Safari Wild faces possible penalty

TBO.com reports that the Southwest Water Management District is seeking more than $46,000 in fines for building associated with an proposed exotic-animal park in Polk County. The article states that fine is associated with work that was done without the proper permits designed to protect wetlands, control stormwater runoff, and reduce flooding.

The article also references prior issues with government involving the park. In May, the Polk County planning office issued a stop-work order after finding buildings that were more substantial than those that were permitted and the Florida Department of Community Affairs also filed a notice of violation because of the development on the Green Swamp, which is designated for special environmental protection.
