OAKDALE -- Oakdale resident Keith Koch, 48, has drawn a lot of unwelcome attention recently after neighbors complained about the cars and trucks and auto parts he stores in the front and back yards of his Davitt Avenue home.
Koch has been working with city officials as he cleans up his property. But Koch said he was taken aback last week when Councilman Mike Brennan, 59, knocked on his door and chewed him out for letting his property fall into disrepair.
"I don't regret it" Brennan said. "I probably should regret it. But this guy needs to get his act together."
City officials said last week that Koch is making progress, and they continue to monitor him. The Davitt Avenue home has special meaning for Brennan. His great aunt, civic leader Florabelle Brennan, who died a few decades ago, once owned the home. Florabelle Brennan Park is named after her.

This town is making an example out of this guy or it would seem this is a big story probably to take the light off the city council's turmoil I hear it's a mess I'd say clean their own house as well.

Does being a 4th generation Oakdale resident and being a city council person give you the right to make a house call and jump in your face to you to get your act together I would think to be on a city council there would be a code of ethic's rule. Proper conduct such as when contact is made with a homeowner in this situation this isn't the Marshall Dillion days finger in the chest bone thats mighty aggressive behavior for anyone let alone one of the council members of Oakdale. Well if you have at least 4 generations under your belt your a lil more special is my take away is from this egg on the face action taken by council member.
