You move into the community, you work hard, you’re industrious (some might even say, “eager”), you build your dream home, right on the river, you start a family, then suddenly there’s talk around Town Hall of “blowing up” or “tearing down” all your hard work. Such is the plight of modern-day beavers when they build without a permit in Lyons.
