  1. Now all we have to do is start ENFORCING Codes; its been pretty lax the last few years, and it shows in dilapidated, occupied properties all around the Village

  2. TM, agree with you whole-heartedly. So many houses in my neighborhood and all over the village are becoming dangerous because they are disintegrating and have yards full of rusted cars and other junk. I want to know WHO is going to enforce our codes!!! If you can’t do the job, whoever you are, quit – and Maywood can try to find someone who has a good work ethic and refuses to be bribed … our old, departed buddy, Tony Thomas, had a very large hand that came out palm up when he came to inspect various projects for me – measured things with an upside down ruler and said they were 1/4 inch off but that it could be overlooked – palm still out and wiggling. How do you thing he could afford those beautiful suits he wore?
