Kindly remember the ONLY WAY experts receive any credit at all for spending time with customers is if you click on OK, GOOD or EXCELLENT SERVICE even though you have made a deposit or are a subscription customer.

Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
ok, i understand your answer. i didn't know i had either option. thank you for that.
Can you please respond to:
Is a court order the same as an injunction?
Can the City fine $100/day if their ordinance says they can fine up to $100, but specifies no time increment?
Is there any governmental agency that would step in to "order" the City to act? looking for something other than my pocket, which is very shallow. :(
Thank you for info re government agencies. :( I will cease looking in that direction.
Ok, I was unclear on one of my questions. The City tells me they need a Court Order to have the authority to narrow the garage themselves. They say they do not know the procedure to obtain a court order. They recently got an injunction in the grain silo matter. Is a Court Order different than an Injunction? or does the City follow the same procedure they did to obtain the injunction?
Re fine: they can fine whatever the law says they can. Which or What Law? The city ordinance? or?
Re City Fine: City "law" states they can fine up to $100. Does that mean only once? or possible to do per day? or they need to amend to a time frame? if yes, can they amend at this point and fine neighbor daily as of 9-1-13?
Ok. Thank you for addressing all my issues. I wish you were local, i would hire you to help me. These are the first direct answers i've been able to receive in almost a year. !!
Thank you very much. Knowledge is power. I am off to visit each of my 6 council members. I think they are going to be unhappy. Hopefully, unhappy enough to move forward.
I have rated your service "excellent". If i had "unbudgeted" funds, i'd leave a tip. Sorry. This already comes out of monies slotted for longstanding medical bills.
May the good you have done me return to you ten-fold.
