On the Agenda for the February 5, 2012 North Miami Beach City Council meeting, Ordinance No. 2013-2 was voted down by a 3-4 vote. This Ordinance was described as:
AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF NORTH MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA AMENDING CHAPTER XIV SECTION 14-8.22(C) OF THE CODE OF THE ORDINANCES OF THE CITY OF NORTH MIAMI BEACH ENTITLED “ENFORCEMENT OF MUNICIPAL CODES OR ORDINANCES” BY PROVIDING FOR AN APPEAL HEARING PROCESS AND BY PROVIDING A SCHEDULE OF CIVIL PENALTIES FOR CODE ENFORCEMENT CITATIONS; PROVIDING FOR THE REPEAL OF ALL ORDINANCES OR PARTS OF ORDINANCES IN CONFLICT HEREWITH; PROVIDING FOR THE CODIFICATION OF THIS ORDINANCE; AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE.
Especially targeted for enforcement are those unsightly properties littered with abandoned vehicles, construction debris, sanitary nuisances, dogs at large, etc. Apparently, four of the seven council members either aren’t aware that these problems exist in our city, or they don’t care. I can’t figure out which, but in order to enlighten them, I decided to give them a photo tour of our ‘hood, entitled Welcome to My Ghetto. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
And now, for the coop dee grass:
We don’t need no stinkin’ Code Enforcement. Welcome to My Ghetto!
