ORDINANCE - An authouritative rule or law. A public injunction or regulation

I live in Barling.
Sevearla of the houses and their yards on my street are in poor conditio. They stay in thin condition because noone enforces the ORDINANCES. Why? Because the city administrators/police don't live on MY street and therefore, don't care how it looks.

Nothing is done about the garbage on the ground, overgrown weeds and grass, broken junk, broken doors and torn screens in the windows of these homes and yards. I see the same thing everday that I pass by. Nothing changes. Why does Barling even have ORDINANCES?

A police officer is dispatched after so many complaints have been called in about disheveled property. Right? Why? How many times does a police officer have to come out and site the ORDIDNANCES to a lazy home owner? Why does the officer even bother to do so? He knows that the home owner isn't going to comply? THERE ARE NOT ANY CONSEQUENCES for my neighbor's lack of property upkeep is there? Why don't you FINE them and fix the problems? It's money for the city isn't it?

Barling City Administrators, your lack of strength, authority and inconsistancy sets a fine example for me. I think I might start dumping my trash on my own front lawn. Oh, but that might STINK after awhile. My neighbors migh HAVE to complain about that! I know. Who cares? You aren't going to do anything either, are you? What is that saying: "Evil conquers when good men do nothing."

P. But it doesn't matter. Although I am not politically active, it would be to my best interest if I knew how the city of Barling is run. And who runs it. I will just attend the city meetings. Bring my little pictures and ask a lot of questions. Try not to cuss too much. j/k.

I have had the same problem for a number of years. The administrator, chief of police , and others running our wonderful city do not live in Barling. Out of site out of mind! And good luck with the council because if it is not the street in which they live they can care less!

No. I can't believe you. When I call public works they sound sincere. Stewart is dispatched. I imagine he explains once again what is expected of the home owner as to the upkeep of his yard and home. It gets done. But there are other houses/yards that don't comply with the ordinances, that need to be looked at, including my own. But I am working on mine. I can't really bitch if I am not in compliance either. All the patrolmen cruise down my street, they see the same messy yards I do. Do they pass this information onto the public works? How can 1 phone call generate more action than their observations? I realize that they fight for the greater good of the public. Everyday. That the weight of their jobs to protect us is more important than the eyesore of my neighbors houses and yards. But my street is important to me. It is where I live, it is a part of me. It needn't look like Fianna Hills, but at least we can try to keep it tidy.

I say all the above and then after cutting down my bushes, moving my fence back and eventually moving my garden shed off of my property line, I will finally be in complince. I can hardly wait for the end of September.
