I have neighbors on three sides. One neighbor I never see. One has thirteen show borzoi's, and never a peep from them. My dog is trained not to bark. My third neighbor has four shelties that never , ever shut up. From 6:30am to about 9:30 Pm they bark constantly. The neighbor yells out the window, "shut-uP" about 100 times at the tops of their lungs. They bark so much they cant keep them indoors. Last year I had a "converstaion" w/ neighbor about problem. This escalated into a major brouhahah but resulted in the dogs being quite until last month. This is now a "neighborhood" issue as my neighbors are afraid of this bully so they seek me out to confront him. I have now confronted him about six times in the last week. So off to the towsnhip building I go. I wanted a copy of the local dog nuisance statute. My municipality has a web site which does not offer local ordinaces.( but lost of self-promotion of elected offcials and how they spent my money) The lTwp ibrary does not have these books either. I went and read the "publics" copy at the police station. I wanted a copy of three pages of the statute. The clerk kindly told me it would be $1.50/page. Now I pay a very, very , very substantial amount of property taxes. Now I have to pay for a copy of my own statute? I brought this up to the clerk and she was indifferant. The wrong attitude to take w/ me. I now have gone to two twp meetings, asked for a private meeting w/ the mayor. Finally, w/o cover letter, signature or return address or explanation, I recieved a copy of the ordinance in mail. Now to deal w/ the neighbor, and later the mayor as i will not let this to go away quitely. I also have an appointment w/ a friend who writes for the local paper I have befriended over the years. I cant beleive more constituents dont take this kind type of position.
