May 7, 2007. Watch the mayor stammer when he claims they look at any complaint on a case-by-case basis. That's because, frankly, he's lying. Here are the police standing orders proving it. There is no latitude for discretion or to resolve any actual problem -- just orders to shut me down.

He also outlines requirements only I must meet that NOBODY could accomplish. Because now I'm not only responsible for traffic issues the City refuses to help plan for. I'm also responsible if any of those visitors are ill-mannered and a neighbor complains.

Don't spend too much time looking for "neighbor complaint" being defined as a public nuisance in that ordinance. And don't be too surprised that they don't really care that it's not there. After all, it's not a huge leap for a city out of control to go from illegally applying an ordinance to only one Christmas light display they have targeted before it was ever built to claiming that anything that comes to mind is magically included in that ordinance just because they say so on TV.
