A lawsuit for what? Mental anguish?


Abusive ticketing during a disaster....abusive ticketing has been used before and has won.

I'd have chainsawed the fence down while he was standing there. I might, just maybe,have accidentally slipped and chainsawed his tire....oops!

There were no "tickets" issued.

A building official wrote, “The safety notice is neither a notice of violation warning nor a citation. It is important that we reach residents in the immediate aftermath of the storm, because that is when conditions are most dangerous, and taking steps to protect life is a critical part of the recovery process.”

Citations....with threat of fine....hundreds handed out within hours of the hurricane....semantics really....similar precedent.

No citations.

A "fix it" notice.

Makes sense to prioritize things. But the flunky may have had an attitude, hard to say.

Why? Do you have a lot of safety hazards in your yard?

I you wanted help fixing your fence I'd give it.
In fact, I have done exactly that with my neighbor.

Don’t blame the person enforcing the code. Blame the morons in city hall that decided to pass a moronic city ordinance.

The city has to make back their money somehow.


No matter, If the guy added the, 'fine warning' bit he was being a prick.

POI, the same thing was done in London at the bridge where the maniac terrorist killer ran amok killing people. All the cars that were stranded in the investigation got fecking tickets. There was uproar, but still the authorities came out with a baldy statement...eventually, that nobody would be fined. All agencies should be on their toes in events like these, that means everymanjack of them, from top to bottom. An apology would be nice in any case...instead of the usual, we are looking into it.


They were putting notices out for the concern of public safety. What if a kid gets smashed by a fence falling over that’s been damaged? Even if it’s only been a few hours after the storm.

Would you come out and demand I have my fence fixed within hours after a natural disaster?

Any parent who lets a child run loose right after a destructive natural disaster, (or any kind of disaster) should be charged with neglect.

No.
Who said the fence had to be fixed within hours?

Apparently, it was because it is required that a swimming pool be fenced.

Neglect huh? Call CPS!

I second that.

They could have waited until the power was restored to go around giving "fix it" "notices." Maybe instead of issuing "notices" he and his co-workers should be helping fix sh$t.

What if I told you a fence or wall can fall on a kid WITH a parent present.

Mind F-N Blown!!!

Here’s one that fell on a kid locally.

Would you look at that! The parents were with them...

How is it neglect when the fence was blown down by a hurricane? The man wasn't even given a day before someone came by and told him it needed to be fixed. Like, no # Sherlock. A Cat 4 just rolled over the neighborhood. Everything needs to be fixed. Its just rude and unnecessary to point out the obvious just hours after a disaster.

You were talking about child neglect. I wasn't. Remember?


Is it rude to prioritize?

Yep, and the priority is to keep the kids in doors until downed power lines, and wreckage is cleared. I'm sure the man knew about the fence. He owns a pool. You cant have a pool in Miami without a fence. Those county workers could have been doing something far more productive.
