Regarding the proposed abandoned vehicle ordinance. Life would be ideal if everyone could be counted on to do the right thing.
Unfortunately, that is not the case, so laws and ordinances are put in place to monitor those individuals who, for whatever reasons, do not do the right thing.
The tighter mowing ordinance that took effect earlier this year is an example of the need to adopt an ordinance to make sure all property owners do the right thing.
Like the mowing ordinance, the proposed abandoned vehicle ordinance effects all citizens, not just the ones renting their properties.
There is not an attempt to single out any one group of citizens. The proposed ordinance is trying to ensure all property owners do the right thing by keeping their properties neat, clean and free of debris.
Property owners who are doing the right thing have nothing to fear from the mowing ordinance or the proposed abandoned vehicle ordinance.
It’s unfortunate that there are property owners who do not do the right thing.
Their actions, or lack thereof, make ordinances necessary to help protect property owners who do consistently try to do the right thing.
