LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Writer feels betrayed by city over parking in yard

Posted

I am writing this letter in reference to a corrective Action we received on April 6, 2017 regarding Municipal Ordinance Chapter 18-292 Motor Vehicles. It states that I can not park my car on my yard. I have been parking my car in the same place for almost 27 years. My car is in perfect running condition and has up to date tags on it. It is hurting no one in my neighborhood. I have never heard of a more ridiculous law. I could see if it was a junk car. There isn't even any grass where I park my car. This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. I feel like there should be an amendment to that ordinance. What about people who have children who have cars? I'm just stunned by this corrective action. I really feel betrayed by this city.
