Why is there a law on the books in Rich Creek that allows one person to set things on the sidewalk and not another. There are others business that are not allowed to do this. Seems like everyone or every business should be treated the same way. As someone who knows for sure this is true I feel that this would be a great way to bring people into the town and the ommunity. Look at the crowds that is in town when the fall festival goes on. Is there a reason for the public to know about that we are not aware of. Is so shouldn't it be told. Channel 10 News even did a story on this problems some years back. Remember when a business closed after two years for being told they could not set things on the sidewalk even in the very same location tht is being done and has been going on since this business started. What make this possible now? Can any supply me with the answers.

This will be interesting to see who, what, etc opions are about this. Wonder how many people really care. Probably willbe sweep under the carpet the same as it was before.! Hopefully this will come to the attention of those that count and want things to be fair.

Has anyone notice the items placed on the sidewalks in Rich Creek. This isn't what an ordiance on the books. Several other business can't do this. Why can certain one be allowed too this. This is your town. You need to stand up for it. Does anyone care??

I had a business in Rich Creek and after two years of trying to make the business work I was told that I COULD NOT sell from the sidewalk. I had petetions signed by people in the community supporting me. I spoke about this at a town meeting and got no where. Was told by a officer I could no longer put anything on the sidewalk. I closed my business. There is a business in the very same location now and has always put her goods on the walk. WHY CAN THIS GO ON. I first posted nameless at this time. Now I have approched your MAYOR and ask why. I requested that this same ordiance be inforced . I am seeking a attorney to see where and what my rights are. Being told I was a trouble maker at the time I tried to fight for ALL business to be able to use the sidewalk. A certain gentlemen was heard by me standing with his back to me and stated to two other gentlemen that the OUTHOUSE WAS A BIT MUCH. I TAPPED THIS PERSON ON THE SHOULDER AND TOLD HIM AT LEAST MY OUTHOUSE(a storage shed) didn't smell like the towns (*(*^ House. You see I know that the reson for the no selling from the sidewalk was that I was talking openly and had placed petetions in several business trying to get something done about the smell. A very good reason for the ordiance to be used. Also there is another gentlemen who I went to talk to told me plainly I was a trouble maker.. Your comments are welcome, but PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE FACTS. I see this merchandise setting on the sidewalk every day as I come through RICH CREEK, so I spoke with your MAYOR. Mr. Eaton and ask why this is happening when I couldn't do it. YOU MUST KNOW MY THOUGHTS ARE THAT WHY CAN'T ALL DO THIS OR NOT BE ALLOWED TO DO IT. EITHER WAY IT SHOULD BE THE SAME FOR EVERYONE, NOT JUST ONE. THIS BUSINES OWNER IS AWARE OF THE ORDIANCE AND I HAVE TRIED TO LET HER KNOW I WASN'T AGAINST OR FOR THIS BUT COME ON FAIR IS FAIR. I have also told your Mayor that I personally will call the TV stations and have them bring this issue to the publics attention. I also stated I would stand on the sidewalk and protest and voice my opions and feelings. My email is susiethecatlady@yahoo.com if you would like to contact me and discuss this with me. I am a woman of my word and will do what I say. PLEASE BACK ME ON THIS ISSUE AND THANK YOU TO ALL WHO DID BEFORE. I no longer have the petetions and would have to start all over with them. Mr. Eaton stated to me the issue was that I left items there overnight. This wasn't true. But if that is the reason there are three large items left on the sidewalk nightly and they are chained to the large polls that are under the above proch. If this is the reason why I was told I couldn't put things on the sidewalk---AGAIN my question is why is the business owner allowed to do so. I have taken photos of these and others items from time to time on the sidewalk to prove this is true.

Giles county does have a double standard.
It's all about who you know in this county
You can get a street closed for a loading dock
but not build additional storage buildings in Narrows. Feel for you- Hang in there, I feel just as you do!!!

I recently spoke with MAYOR EATON about this issue Now there is even more items being placed daily on the sidewalk and even more larger items left over night. There is another business using the sidewalk in front of their store. I ask him what the latest was on the issue and he replied by saying I NEED TO PUT IT IN WRITING AND BEFORE THE town meeting. WELL - my question is th is! There is a problem the Mayor is aware of it. I know you as RICH CREEK RESIDENTS see this issue daily and I am not going to put this before the council. You elected him and are expecting him to do his job. LET ME SAY IT THIS WAY. IF THERE WAS A PROBLEM ABOUT A SSTREET LIGHT (EXAMPLE ONLY) OUT, WOULD SOMEONE HAVE TO WAIT TO PUT IT BEFORE THE COUCIL. I BELIEVE THERE ARE EMPLOYEES FOR THIS ON THE JOB. NOW CAN YOU AS TAXPAYERS AFFORD TO PAY THE MAYOR DO DO A JOB THAT HE ISN'T DOIND. WAKE UP PEOPLE. THIS IS YOUR TOWN. AND NOT MINE.

You're just trying to start some shit. If you really wanted an answer you would go to the town meeting and demand one.

Why should anyone help you start a bunch of shit? You even started a thread on the Washington,DC forums, trying to start some shit with me. Do you think you have the right to clutter the public sidewalk because you open a business? If you have been treated unfairly speak to a lawyer.

Excuse me but I don't know how you were a thread on the d.c. forum. you are wrong about me wanting to clutter the sidewalk, and I don't run a business now. I was told that there was an ordance that didn't allow things on the sidewalk. The business that is doing it now is getting by with it. After telling me I couldn't do it. The business is the same type of merchandise I was selling. I trying to resolve why it is right for some people to do this and others can't. I did go to council and fought this matters with petetions and had the deed to the property lines. They still said that I couldn't put my merchandise out. This is now happening again and the council is allowing it. Right is right and wrong is wrong. Again I do not appreciate you making your remarks with the language you use or any comments with out all the facts. Perhaphs you should try and find out like I am what the reason are.

I don't care about what happened to your business. I'm simply saying that when you post this type of crap on Topix you are trying to start some shit. Just look at the threads, it's all about talking trash about others and posting lies and bullshit. Read some of these threads. Now do you think you will find any answers here? Hell no you won't. The folks on here will be posting that you are a slut with a whole list of stds and hepatitis, that is after everyones husband or boyfriend. You need to find another way to fight city hall.
