Flooding problems appear to be a much more serious issue than say, what window treatments residents might choose or be able to afford.
Without the help of any scientific research, we will hazard a guess that there are more residents whose houses are inundated with water and/or sewage than those worrying about their neighbor’s window coverings.
The council recently touted their window treatment legislation calling this a “strong law.” We are unaware of a rampant predicament in this city regarding inappropriate window coverings.
