Code Enforcement property thieves


Blogger Radio Free Nation said...

Interesting. One would think if there is nothing to hide, then the LA County officials would welcome an opportunity to respond. Unfortunately, when they do not respond it makes for the appearance of "irregularity".

Just a note for people who think Journalism/Media doesn't have a place in America anymore; The LA Times and other large media outfits are often the only organizations large enough ($$$) to take on corruption, via the legal system. In this story you can see that "Indy" media is basically ignored.

May be Steve Magner and Joel Essling can work for LA County when they retire from DSI.

Its the problem of the laws... they have to be the same over the entire county if the county becomes the one who is enforcing land use issues.

They are treating these rural sites the same as if had houses next door to them. I think we will see more and more of this as counties are ending up to be the main level of government enforcing health standards.

we will see more and more of this as counties learn they can use code enforcement as a revenue source,

Like really ? I mean the fed up residents in this video were told that after many years of them living in their homes without complaints, a neighbor out of the blue calls in to report deficiencies ? I think the residents are right in that the Government there has ulterior development plans.

County supervisor Antonovich not wanting to answer the questions of the residents under excuse that he was not required to answer questions ie.

" The time for public comment doesn't require responces "

WTF Chuck !! How is it they are holding a Public meeting and getting away with ignoring the very residents that meeting is supposed to be for ?

Sounds like some of this shit goes on in St.Paul meetings also.

7:50 - I am agreeing with you, that it appears that the county board has made the decision that they are going to require a certain level of property maintenance on all properties in the county. They have created a health standard.

The issue that most people have is that standards seem more reasonable when they are put on urban properties than rural. We (most people) would say that a bunch of junk cars out a mile a way from your neighbor isn't an issue. The problem is that when you create a law, it has to be equal. So, if the county is setting health standards it applies to the entire county.

We (most people) see health standards as protecting your neighbor from you. The law sees it as a standard for the property, regardless of if you have a neighbor or not.

So, yes I would have no doubt that the county sees the entire county as going to be developed or they wouldn't get into the standards requirements.
