the law

There is a spirit of volunteerism crucial to a City. Neighbors show consideration to one another. Underlying the voluntary effort and cooperation are a web of laws. A safety net. Occasionally the laws are enforced, when there is a violation too large to ignore.
Law is like art. Thousands of hours are spent creating the letter of the law, the code, the ordinances. And then, the body of law, the finished work, is ignored.

many of the ordinances are ignored by authorities. But one section that is carefully preserved is revenue collection. We won't pick up your trash but we will pick up your money...
