County, Geracis still vying over road

Add another lawsuit to Hillsborough County's long and icy relationship with Peter and Nick Geraci.

The county has asked a Tampa judge to declare that the Lutz ranchers are illegally using a residential street as an access route for dump trucks to the Geracis' sand pit.

The pit, and another one that's planned, is just north of the Pasco County line from Sunlake Boulevard, the access street.

The Geracis obtained a permit last year, citing ranching activities that included the hauling of sand. They reject the county's contention that the permit isn't valid for a commercial excavation.

Hillsborough wants to force trucks from the Geraci land to use State Road 54 in Pasco County.
