Finally got started insulating and drywalling the garage. Required moving my nephew's (USAF Capt.) car from the garage to the driveway. The car is clean, runs, looks new and will be here for him when he returns.

Apparently, the local rep for St. Louis County Neighborhood Preservation feels that because the car isn't currently licensed that he needed to issue a violation notice.

Okay no problem, those are the rules, no exceptions and I accept that fact.

My question is: "How did the guy next door manage to leave a rusting, wheel-less, windowless, engineless, rat-infested heap in his driveway for nearly 10 years and never incur a single violation notice from this same yocal?"

No surprise that the guy issuing the violation notice is the same person who pasted a notice on my door when neighborhood kids left their candy wrappers and mikey dee's trash on my manicured lawn last summer.

No surprise that this is the same guy who pasted a notice on my door and ran away, "citing the need for the tuck-pointing 3 bricks" that were located behind 2 large shrubs that had to be removed just to see the bricks. Yes this sharp-eyed societal wart somehow managed to see this infraction from the street, but miss the rotting hulk right next door!

If there is a genuine problem, simply knock and talk to me instead of sneaking around my home as if you had something to hide or as if your motives are less than professional.

This is unincorporated St Louis County NOT Florissant. Although I think the laws are the same.

Are you the same person as "Just Asking"?

Uniincorporated STL County had the same ordinance about unlicensed vehicles on driveways like Florissants has when I lived there a few years ago.

It's been weeks since we moved the vehicle back into the garage, and our County Neighborhood Preservation guy still slows down as he passes.

Curiously, it's also been several weeks that a vehicle with expired Illinois plates has sat undisturbed, parked on the street, headed in the wrong direction and only 2 houses away since March.

Neither the County Neighborhood Preservation guy nor the County "Brown Shirts" so much as pump their brakes when passing by it.

It's comforting knowing that the neighborhood is under such watchful eyes.
