Isn't this a misuse of city funds?

I'm not sure what you're saying. It's confusing. Could you tell me more.

No, we've not had problems w/ SP code. We are looking into doing some work on our property, so IRead Morewas curious as to what the problems are that you are having. But, after reading what you put up on you blog, all I can think is: Wouldn't it be simpler for you just to get the proper permits? I think you are stressing yourself out over something that can easily be remedied. If I were one of your neighbors I too probably would have also called the city If I saw a "worker" who was not a licensed contractor grading a hillside in an attempt to put in a retaining wall and said "worker" appeared to be doing it in a manner that could put the neighboring properties of others at risk.

There is something in America called the constitution. It gives us certain inalienable rights thatRead MoreA LL of us have as citizens of this country, even in south pasadena. It protects ALL of us, including yourself, marlon rameriz, bill reed, craig melicher, david watkins, sergio gonzalez, john mayer, city council members, etc., as well as my neighbors john grab and the bangers. The neighbors are free to call the police or code enforcement whenever they see fit. That is their right of free speech, also included in the constitution.The problem occurs with what marlon or the police do with the information. Last I checked, the right to come on my property without consent or a search warrant still is included in the constitution and would therefore apply to myself and my property even though I happen to live in the city of south pasadena. Here's my phone number, 818-209-0367. I would be happy to review the constitution and ALL of the circumstances of my situation with you so that you do not have the same problems that I have.

Justanotheropinion, you are welcome to blog here on Patch. And you are welcome to email editorRead Moremiche lle.mowad@patch.com.

Thanks Michelle. But with all due respect, you not being a local prohibits you from reallyRead Morecovering SP or any other area you are responsible for. You can re-post articles until the cows come home, but a distant editor has no sense of the community they are trying to cover. You didn't know that massage parlors were a hot button for SP, so how would you have known to re-post this? You didn't know it was a hot button, therefore you didn't repost it much less even know to look for this article. Furthermore, you can't canvas the town for local interest stories. You can't go and meet with residents and local business owners to research and write about. You simply aren't here. This is no knock against you. Patch's way of covering local news is garbage (i.e. scour the internet and repost other peoples stories & recipes). Great initial idea, but the way they have elected to go about it will lead to their demise. I only posted the link because I hoped there might be a few readers left and they would recognize the importance of the article. Michelle, thank you for what you do - you are working with what you've got. Again, not a knock on you. This 'business model' is for shi*.
