Good afternoon. I'll be assisting you with your question.

To answer your question directly, yes, nearly every major city in the US has city ordinances regulating similar matters.

Customer:

I live in a small town pop of 3500 people and some neighbors and i think the odranance goes too far has anyone fought

Chris T., JD :

I'm not sure if this has specifically been tried in Pennsylvania, but city ordinances regarding upkeep and appearance have regularly been upheld as constitutional. Below is a short memo on determining constitutionality of city ordinances:

Customer:

Where can i find a case that hase been challanged in pa court or pa supreme court

Chris T., JD :

From what you've described, the city ordinance would be constitutional. Keep in mind, the answer to most unpopular ordinances is not a legal challenge, but a political challenge.

Customer:

thank you i can run for mayor

Chris T., JD :

Here is a link to the PA Supreme Court case system. If they've decided a case, you will find it here.

Chris T., JD :

Like I said, these kinds of ordinances are constitutional. They may be unpopular, but they are legal.

Customer:

Chris T., JD :
