A Fairfield business owner who’s been court-ordered to clean up his yard now owes the town nearly $20,000.

The town manager says officials are considering more legal action against Robert Dale.

Dale had a deadline of June 15th to clean up outside his business, Maine 201 Antiques.

Neighbors say it’s an illegal junkyard.

Besides $10,000 in legal fees, Dale was penalized $5,000 when he missed the cleanup deadline.

He’s also being fined $150 a day.

The town manager says there’s been some improvement to Dale’s property, but there are still major issues there.
