The following is a message we receive all too often from GUARDIAN readers who are at wit’s end
when it comes to help from City Hall where the standard line is “You have to file a written complaint.” What ever happened to enforcing the law?
Please direct me to someone I can talk to about my neighbors multiple code violations. I have already contacted code, and they seem unwilling to help. Neighbor will not mow his lawn,the front of his home is atrocious! He just completed an 8 month home improvement which involved chopping down multiple mature trees, adding a 4×8 structure to the side of his house, a 500 square foot concrete pad to his backyard and all this to drive his behemoth mobile home over grass to park less than 3 ft from our property line. Setbacks on the property are 5ft. side & 15 ft. rear. Also has Multiple out buildings that are in violation of code. The kicker here is he works for ACHD!!! Is there anthing that can be done…Shame Shame on this #$%^&*.
If there is an official out there who will help, we will put the reader in contact with him/her.
HERE IS THE RESPONSE!
I just read the article from someone who claims they had a problem with weeds on a property. If you would please give them my name and contact information I will be happy to set up a code enforcement case and send one of our code enforcement officers out to take care of the concern. And I will be happy to contact this person who has the concern.
A thank-you from the GUARDIAN as well.
