Off the lawn, please!

Car on Lawn


Where are we? Woodstock? Still? Really? Or did we slip over the edge and end up in a foreign country?

What's with people and their ideas about maintaining property values? Does this vehicle belong to the owner of the property or to a renter of an absentee landlord?

This car was in front of 314 N. Madison last evening; perhaps it has been moved by now.

But look what it took to get it there. The driver either backed up over the curb or drove across the front lawn to park this old battleship on the front lawn and on the sidewalk leading up to the house.

One of the problems with a City Code full of rules and regulations is that residents don't know about them. Or maybe they wouldn't even care, if they did know about them.

The City could do a better job of informing residents about parking prohibitions and many other ordinances. Using a portion of the water bill postcard would be a low-cost way of publicizing car-parking regulations and garage-sale rules. Every house in the City gets one of those several times each year.
