COUNCILLOR INQUIRIES

3.1

Ongoing Yard Sale (B. Henderson)

 

 

 

The City has been attempting to respond to a citizen complaint about a yard sale that dates back to the spring. There is still no resolution to this issue despite numerous attempts to enforce our bylaws and have the yard sale cease and the property cleaned up.

1. What has been our process to date?

2. What have been the impediments to achieving compliance?

3. What, in our own bylaws, may have impeded this process?

4. What other impediments have slowed down the process?

5. What changes could be looked at to ensure this kind of delay does not happen again?
