To the Editor,

A Tale of Two Cities
In one, a resident is given permission by the city council and mayor to live full time, year-round, without a water hookup, electric, septic (unless a hole with a toilet chair counts), in a small/travel trailer for three plus years. Still ongoing...

In two, a resident files the simple paperwork required by the city, and informs the city clerk of their plans. No stipulations are made, no ordinances cited, no further requirements written or stated are made. Yet, several months down the road, their honesty and hard work earns them a verbal assault, reprimand and unsubstantiated demands by the city council.

Demands and requirements not made of others...just the law-abiding.

If I didn’t know better...that has an eerily familiar ring to it.
