    SJ you were right - I will need a very tall ladder.

    Didn't get bonked in the head, but didn't get them down either.

    speaking of tall ladders, I haven't noticed any tall ladders in the backs of the Code Enforcement F150s. If they really plan on taking a somewhat proactive stance on upholding the Code, maybe they need at least on tall ladder. Or, they could simply take the business name and phone number off the sign, and issue a daily fine until the signs are removed. That way, they don't even need a ladder.

    I do not believe that they have gone proactive yet. But I do think that someone is working on Saturdays. Not sure if they are taking complaints or just working their open cases. They must be resolving some stuff, two months in a row nothing has come to the code board to handle. Seems everything is settling and coming into compliance.

    Exactly what does code enforcement do when they're not answering a call? Polish the $$ vehicles? :dunno:

    Apparently they can't act unless someone reports something so unless I am REALLY missing something there is a lot of wasted time.

    wrobert, obviously, you haven't been riding on the Timpoochie Trail lately. There are Code violations all over the place.

    I bet they hire someone else to wash the shiny maxed out F150s. Maybe we should start calling them to report each of the sign violations. :dunno:

    And not just on the trail ........

    My understanding is that since they're not proactive, even though there are blatant code violations all over, they can't do anything until they get a call ;-)

    Who heads the Code NO-Enforcement Department, and what does that job pay?

    They must be actively working with people. The last two cases that came to the board were about a year in the making.

    They are all over 331 south of Freeport also. Some panamanian company trying to get every single person that visits to sign up for a service.

    Kevin Hargett heads it up. I am guessing around $40K but have not looked lately.

    Why does it take a year to figure out if someone is in violation? Should either be pretty obvious or not their department IMO. :dunno:

    what about the Freeportsingles.com signs all over the right of way? There were SouthWaltonSingles.com signs, too, but someone must have run them over with the lawnmowers.

    Now the signs are all freeportdates.com. Those are the panamanians from what I can tell when I did a whois on the domain. I went to the site and read the legal stuff, signing up for that grants them permission to just about do anything they want with your computer. Scary cause I make a living from people not reading those agreements.
