IN ORDER TO RAISE MONEY AND LOWER DEBT….
The town must follow the law. Unbelievable but TRUE. All of the BIG Five ordinances plus the LDR’s have fines for non-adherence. If the town had just followed the Ordinances and assessed the fines required for non-compliance there would be more than enough money to fund the Fire Department.
But NO. At one time, the town decided to fight legal actions brought to force compliance and spend literally thousands of dollars rather than call a trashy yard a trashy yard because it was a Special Folk who owned the trashy yard. In one case the town could have had almost a thousand dollars in fines and not spent nearly three thousand dollars defending its right to grant special favors for special folks.
And the yard is still trashy today, who’d of thunk it? The Government of Inaction and Special Favors is what we got. Shame on us.
