We have just discovered that private property has no respect — means nothing. I hope that freedom of speech still counts for something.
My husband and I just returned from a vacation trip at about 3 a.m. There was a sheriff’s car parked in the middle of the street. Seems he was putting stickers on cars for removal notice. We have an old Chevy in the process of being restored. It is not abandoned. How many cars do you see that have been abandoned are put up on blocks? Also we keep it cleaned and opened so things don’t start living in it.
I attempted to call the number on the notice and discovered it was a “non-working” number. Cute, guys. After calling the sheriff and being run around through different officers, I was finally connected to the Coroner’s Office. They deal with dead cars, too?
We were awake and our lights were on but apparently the officer has the discretion of informing property owners of his actions. This officer did not talk to us.
The matter has been handled. I have spoken with the Sheriff’s Office, so all is now OK. We are angry about the inconvenience it caused and upset that common courtesy is a thing of the past.
Better relationships between the Sheriff’s Office and the community could be improved by using a little more integrity.
