Ogulande was looking to operate his business out of his home on 206 Britton Ave. He said he wouldn't be storing cars on the property. Instead, the vehicles would be transferred from one auction to another auction.
Selectman T.J. Recupero said he had a problem with granting a Class II Dealer to a business that wasn't renting commercial space or paying commercial tax.
"I prefer you rent space and pay commercial rates and taxes," said Recupero, who later apologized to Ogulande for the tone of his questioning.
If the selectmen had taken a vote on the Class II Dealer license, it would have been voted down by a 3-0.
