Your Views: Lula could use new blood, more reasonable rules

POSTED: April 17, 2014 1:00 a.m.

It is my hope that some new blood on the Lula City Council will bring an end to silly regulations like the one requiring a resident to pay a fee and to get the city’s approval in order to have a yard sale on his own property. I know that part of the fee is refundable if the yard-saler cleans up his property to an inspector’s satisfaction after the sale.

This concern for the appearance of a resident’s property has a hollow ring to it in light of the many fruitless calls I made trying to get this same city government to do something about an abandoned property across the street from me. They kept saying that they couldn’t find out who owned the property and did absolutely nothing but post notes on the door while weeds in the front yard grew to be waist high.
