After months of complaints being filed, the Watauga County attorney has issued a citation to the Cottages of Boone demanding the removal of trash that has overflowed multiple on site dumpsters.

Anthony DiSanti issued the citation notice on October 15 that was served to the property manager in person and mailed to corporate offices of the Cottages. The Cottages of Boone have until October 29 to correct this issue. If cleanup isn’t up to the standards of the inspector, the Cottages will be fined 100 dollars per day until the property is in full compliance.
According to the Associated Press, Maggie Goll says she raised concerns in the past about the assistant director who handed Alec Baldwin a loaded gun on set of “Rust.” Goll says she filed a complaint in 2019 over concerns about David Halls’ behavior on the set of a Hulu series.

She says that on the set of “Into the Dark,” Halls didn’t hold safety meetings and repeatedly failed to announce the presence of a firearm on set to crew members. She says that to her knowledge, nothing was done to correct his behavior.
