And what the hell happened to LSU? Not that I have anything against Alabama you understand, but a shutout? Ouch.
17 days until the Big Chili Party at Raynel's. I think Walter was trying to give me grief about it Saturday night but one of was had been over served. OK maybe both of us but I still think it was Walter. I'll have an email invite sent out tomorrow.
I think I've heard there are two serious bodies in the running for Council in May. Bryan and Carlo. What say you to that?
And in case you haven't heard the City Council's next meeting is Tuesday the 17th.
And this from the Mayor's office
A NOTE FROM THE MAYOR
Clear Lake Shores has been in a clean-up mode ever since Hurricane Ike in 2008. Most all of the storm related problems have been solved although there are a few cases that need to be addressed. In addition to storm related problems there are several violations to the current ordinances relating to trash,etc. Some violations are very minor with perhaps a boat or utility trailer parked on a vacant lot while others are major. The City has received a petition from over 50 residents requesting that two of the violators be made to clean up their property.
Since selective enforcement is objectionable to everyone, I have asked the Building Official to have all property in the City brought into compliance with our ordinances. Specifically, the particular code being violated is Section 42-51.You can go on line at www.clearlakeshores-tx.gov and scroll down the left hand side to "ordinances". You can then go to section 42-51 and read the entire section 42. In summary, sec. 42-51 requires that property be kept free of brush,refuse,rubbish,weeds and other objectionable unsightly or unsanitary matter of whatever nature. For vacant lots this means that no boats on a trailer can be permanently stored on the lot. Also no other type of trailer or vehicle can be stored,nor can there be piles of trash or tall grass and weeds on these lots. We also have Sec. 78-167 declaring junk vehicles as being a public nuisance. Sec 78-166 defines a junk vehicle.
The Building Official is currently assessing all property in the City and will be sending letters to everyone in violation. The letter will describe the violation and will allow you 30 days to cure the problem. Please do not ignore the letter as this could cause legal action.
Your cooperation in this project is appreciated.
