SOUTHPORT BEACH - The owner of a concession stand that was washed away during Superstorm Sandy on Southport Beach has moved his building to what he hopes is a temporary location, as he appeals the Town of Fairfield's decision to condemn it.

Hunter King says he agreed to remove the building from Southport Beach in June after he won a bid to purchase it from the town. After complying with that decision, he says that he would like to bring the stand back to its prior location after making renovations and building a foundation that follows FEMA code.

In order to follow through with his plans, King will first have to get the town's approval. Fairfield officials have stated that they no longer want permanent structures on the beach.

King says he hopes to state his case later this month at a meeting for the town's Parks and Recreation Commission.
