Why is this ordanance not enforced? There are several homes in the city that should be cleaned up especially the home by the golf course..
The solution is to enforce the city ordinance
Oh Donald, and you sounded almost sane in one of your recent posts.
Donald Mullikin wrote:What if someone should petition, lobby, and get an ordinance passed, that to avoid houses being of a nuisance color, that any bright color is defined as a nuisance. Making it so that only beige or light colors such as light green or light blue colors are deemed acceptable. Then anyone painting their homes in a color that is not considered as being acceptable would be fined or "Code Enforced" into compliance.
If I had to guess, I'd say Donald is a Libertarian.
I'm not talking about the color of a house! This is about homes within the city limits that have trash and junk in their yards..
Therefore, I now consider myself a freethinker,
So.... a libertarian hipster then?
Dude, that's a lot of words to just say 'yes'
Donald... what is the one thing that hipsters hate?
I think some of you are taking this a little to far with regards to the constitution. What is in front of Shipley's home is not a priceless antiques, to anyone, it is simply junk. Just junk, junk, and more junk.
designed to protect individuals from the ill effects of collectivism
I'm sure most people would rather not see the collective mess of someone unwilling or incapable of deciding that something is junk or at least working to organize and properly store said items.
Oh wait.. that is already being done; that is exactly what Public Nuisance Ordinances, Codes, and Laws do. A minority decides what is proper or fits their beliefs, opinions, or personal preferences and then they enforce their preferences on the majority.
What do you think is occurring in the mind of the person who organized them?

Wrong. The "minority" which you refer to are the elected officials, that the majority may vote out of office if they do not like the ordinances, codes, and laws that they are passing.:
From the Star article about this "trustee's sale":
"In October 2011, Shipley sued former Mayor Joe Whalen for violating his right to due process in public nuisance proceedings against him. The suit was unsuccessful."
