This country in large part has not prided itself on the private ownership of property for almost 50 years. The past several years have revealed the contempt that many quarters hold for the mere concept of private property rights, let alone the owners of private property. If I were dictator for a day I would limit voting rights to only those who hold title to real property. That would straighten things out in a couple of election cycles.
I am guessing there would be multiple deeds for the same property and many of them located on distant planets.
Just because you own a car doesn't mean you own the road.
In a country that prides itself on private ownership and the rights of a land owner, this is completely asinine.
Assuming that the owner has mowed HIS property, maintained it to city standards, then the ordinance, from what I see, applies to property owners only. It says nothing about private property owners having any responsibility for CITY lots! What am I missing here?
I can (and I DO) maintain my own lot, and as I type this, I just came in from mowing my lawn this morning before it achieves 98 degrees out there. I have no responsibility to mow ANYTHING that belongs to the city and 'just happens" to adjoin my property. Our city ordinances say about the same thing. IF you don't mow or maintain your property, the city can (and WILL), after having received a complaint, send you a warning letter. If you don't respond or clean up, the city will do it and charge whatever fee it sees fit. That is only fair to other property owners who DO maintain their lots.
The city can kiss my *** cause I DO maintain my place. The city makes me pay them for mowing their lots anyway: it's called TAXES! I'd love to get into something like this with the sh***---er uh, I mean, CITY!!! I've been looking for somebody to sue; I need the money! LMAO!
I'd love to see them try that here! I'll trade some of my surplus potatoes to you now, and get some of your surplus apples later, what goes around most allotment owners round here. (Allotments are plots of land rented from the council for a nominal amount so you can grow your own food, or just have a bit of garden). It goes back well before the "Dig for Victory".
