Normandy Wants Trash Containers Out of Sight

Trash containers in Normandy serving buildings with at least four residential units or commercial buildings must now be concealed from public streets as well as neighboring residences.

The ordinance, approved by the City Council on Tuesday night, is designed to address health and aesthetic concerns. In recent years, the city has sought to review and often beef up its building and property use provisions, to maintain property values.

It gives the city's code enforcement officers the right to determine if the containers need concealment in individual cases.

    Why is it that various governments don’t want to come to grips with what is rally destroying neighborhoods in the county and deal with that instead of putting Band-Aids on gushing arteries?

    It’s too late for Normandy to “maintain” property values. The best they can hope for at this point is to prevent them from going to zero.

    When are we going to rebel against government making us all pay more than we should have to in order to keep the rude, inconsiderate, self centered, careless, and outright stupid people in the country from ruining it for all of us? Think of all of the extra costs we incur every year because governments either can’t or won’t enforce existing laws. Occupancy inspections because people don’t take proper care of their homes. Automobile safety inspections because people don’t maintain their cars, plus all the safety equipment required because the government won’t get drunk drivers and red light runners off the roads. All of the tamper proof packaging to keep nuts from tampering with food and drugs. Go after the people that are causing the problems and leave the rest of us alone!
