After more than two years, our neighbour has finally cleaned his lot. It’s not totally done, as there are still two junker cars left; however, these are sitting at the very back of the property and hard to see.

And, an even better note: there were several people there today with a pickup moving furniture from the house. Most of us on the street seem to consider this a good sign.

However, it’s now time to see if the Environment Department will inspect and clear the property, as well as rescinding the permit to store hazardous wastes. Not that I expect them to actually do their job, but, I’m allowed to be optimistic…

    That’s great to hear – but it truly is bullshit that it’s taken this long to rectify a situation that bad.

    • I don’t think the wheels have to grind this slowly. When it’s officially over, I think I’ll go to council and push for tightening up some of these bylaws. Remember that, if it’s this difficult to enforce their other bylaws, the property tax bylaw is probably just as difficult to enforce.

    Glad to hear the crap is being hauled out!
