In the video below, a collection of statements from various city officials reveal conflicting, and at times flat out wrong information being reported to the public.
In certain cases it appears as if some elected officials haven’t even read Ordinance 65-05 at all. NOTE: The actual amount of money to be deposited in the escrow account is 150% of the HIGHER of 2 estimates that must be obtained by the homeowner. HOWEVER – the minimum escrow deposit required is $1,000.00 – regardless of the amount of the repair. Compare other inaccurate statements made by city officials with the actual legislation:
False or misleading information whether given out by virtue of malicious intent or incompetence is unacceptable.
Why hasn’t the full and complete text of Ordinance 65-05 been posted on the City’s website for all to see? During one meeting, city officials incorrectly advise residents that the legislation is available online. It is NOT. Offering to get “just some facts about Point-of-Sale on our website,” isn’t good enough. The citizens deserve complete information and full access. If this legislation is so good for the city, it should sell itself.
The example below illustrates the lack of availability of the actual details of Ordinance 65-05.
