Here you've got two women in the QOL dept riding around putting notices on abandoned homes that there grass is too high.
The homeowners are long gone so whats the point? Sounds like a make work job to me.
Our tax dollars at work!

There's plenty of real work to be done. The city is just too busy being politically correct to cite some of the real offenders.

You could get high school kids working after school to do that and save a boatload of money.

Or, they could actually fine some of the absentee owners for the condition of their properties and make a boatload of money.

The morons wrote me a ticket the other day for a sign that was permitted and hung a decade ago. It's all about greed and generating revenue and small town corruption.

Generating revenue, greed and small town corruption I agree with. But if you do nothing about that citation, chances are you will never hear from them again. The court system never follows up and when they do, you'll likely get a slap on the wrist, if that.

It seems to me "Doravilian in decline", that you would understand that a lot of that "decline" is from derelict property issues that need to be handled, and I'm not talking about tall grass and signs from a decade ago.

Agree.

But leadership is in short supply. So is initiative.
