I will add my voice to the issue of replacing members of the ethics board.
Every member who was sitting on that board on Jan. 25, 2010, should have been replaced long ago. I had a hearing before the board on that date for a complaint I filed against the code enforcement officer and the city manager. These two city officials had refused to enforce the nuisance ordinance on property beside me with weeds and trash.
I presented a thorough case with facts, documentation and photos. This board ignored the facts in their executive session, which was too short for them to have even discussed anything, and dismissed my complaint.
They made a biased decision which gave the city officials free reign to continue to “pick and choose” which ordinances to enforce, and who to enforce them on. It is my profound opinion that they could not see an ethics violation if it jumped out of the woods and slapped them in the face.
