help - need facts against proposed ordinance
Just got the agenda items for my city's next City Council work session. I hope you can help me explain to them how wrong this would be if enforced.
"Rodents/insects, and pests
All property shall be maintained so as not to allow, create or be conducive to the infestation, harboring, breeding of rats, flies, mosquitos, roaches, silverfish, or other rodents or insects. Further, all property shall be maintained so as not to allow, create, or be conducive to a nest or colony of stinging insects, such as yellow jackets, hornets, bees, wasps, or other similar pests that are or would create a public safety hazard or public nuisance. A public safety hazard shall include a threat of stinging to any person on any public street, sidewalk, parking lot, or to any person on adjacent private property."
Need your help pronto. The meeting is next Tuesday evening. I certainly have thoughts on this,but want you to share yours.
Many thanks, Rosie
