How can the City legally put a notice on your door (that you can not remove) that states that papers are in court (the notice was dated) to demolish your home when
1. Nothing was filed in court yet. I think Ihrie said it was 2 weeks after the notice was posted before anything was filed.
2. Inside pictures were illegally obtained and no one-Code Enforcement, Chris Rayes etc., that I would think legally had to have information about the inside of this house were not involved just a rogue city council person.
Is this the type of Gestapo government that we have come to? How many other times have we had problems with SCS emplpoyees? Remember the snow debacle. Remember city employees tagging perfectly running water meters just to further their own agenda. People being cited for having very minor things on their home not to LSI's liking and being threatened with court citations and more?
I could put many many more. I am very disappointed with this city, the City Manager, and the Mayor to allow this to happen this is not right!

Its not the city per se, its the bafoonery of city council. City manager has no control over them. They are his boss. What i saw monday made me sick and embarrassed. Then the petty bickering on facebook showed me how immature they really are. Rusie and her mommy fighting vitale with frederick poking them from behind. Needless to say, tbe residents should hang their heads in shame and not vote for these petty idiots

It is really sad when a councilperson Vitale a home under false pretences that he believes is owned by another councilpersons associate broker. He did this to prove that the dept for the city is being corrupted by others on council. He being the cop on the case steps into a pile of shit in the process. What you have to understand is this cow pie wasn't fresh. It has been baking in the oven for some time now and the baker landlord has other surprise pies lying around. But with the help of her freinds on the council she is content to keep on keeping on knowing that the city inspection will pass and not to worry if it don't. A game of sorts to a investor/landlord. A game that has interested politicians to engage and play along hoping they will be returned the favor. Members of council are taking opportunities and risks to enjoy the sence of power at the peoples expense. This happens after they have enough of the citizens thinking they are the only ones with power. Who loses here while the politicians play? The citizen with the mortage on a home nearby.

The neighborhood nazi speaks up. You dind't like the renters , so you complain and complain and complain. I have sen people like you before. YOU make life miserable for the entire neighborhood if you don't get your things your way. Now we have one lard a** council person that wants to play city nazi. His tactics were disgusting. The ignorant voters who didn't see through his veil when he was running for office finally got to see the ugly bride they wedded.

Hey, it was Vitale who ambushed and attacked Rusie with his stupid presentation. Would you want to sit through that crap directed at you? What a freaking buffoon with too much time on his hands and a weird sense of paranoia and grandeur. It was like watching Downey.

The funny thing is that these two idiots used each other to get elected.
Rusie beat out Ahearn by just over 100 votes, you could argue that without Vitale and STRAW this could have gone the other way.
Vitale piggybacked on Rusie's platform with her campaigning on his behalf to get elected.
In a summary Vitale is a buffoon and Rusie is a nitwit with poor judgement.

I'm sure Rusie agrees she misjudged Vitale and his appropriateness for the seat. I'm sure she feels very bad about what she had a hand in inflicting upon the City. I'm sure she never imagined what a little bit of power would do to the guy. I'm sure she never imagined how he'd be using his seat. I'm sure she never imagined how he could turn into such a backstabbing idiot. I'm sure she regrets every effort she put into helping the guy get elected. I'm sure she wishes she had supported Burtch instead, who at least would understand laws and how they restrain the city and city officials from just doing whatever they damn well please.

Unless.. RECALL!!!!
Looks as if there might be enough anger to get the ball rolling. Do it now before the election so the real reason for this can be exposed. That would be to taint Candices' bid for State Rep.
Thanks to the Dem Club, Sarah,Ron, Ted and and the PACs Unions and special interest groups who have big bucks invested. Grass roots campaign my ass! Right Sarah?

The funny thing is all of this was obvious at the time she was endorsing him. The fact that she had so little foresight to notice this really calls into her judgement. Read his website ( http://vitale4scs.webs.com/aboutme.htm ) for God's sake.

"During the summer of 2009, I decided to help two new candidates get elected to St. Clair Shores city council. Pete Rubino, I'd known through the STRAW group, and I was impressed with his knowledge of budgeting and external factors facing the city. Candice Rusie was introduced to me later in the summer, but I was soon impressed with her drive to make city government work "for the people". I'm quite proud to think I played a role in unseating an incumbent councilman, and helped them triumph over a much better-funded candidate."

I go back to my original statement that He is and egomaniac buffoon, and she is a nitwit with very poor judgement.

In August 2008 someone paid $183.77 for the city to cut their lawn after complaints were received.

In December 2008 the court found the same person GUILTY of property maintenance code violations.

No visible license plate was displayed on a vehicle and this vehicle was parked on gravel.

The name behind these code violations is the chief complainer, former SPEC chairperson...

Sometimes people aren't who they say they are, aren't who you think they are, sometimes people get the benefit of a doubt they don't deserve, and sometimes they change for the worse. I'm sure Rusie feels truly disgusted right now, and very, very sorry. She always focuses on respect for property rights and proper processes, and now this idiot is dragging her through the mud about it.

The bottom line is that unless the city can prove that the house is either uninhabitable or a life safety threat they cannot get a demolition order.

It's private property and it still doesn't make it ok for city officials to just enter it at will. It could be a shack or the taj mahal, the rights are the same. The city has to follow the law.
