My wife just commented that all the homeless encampments scattered throughout Sacramento as well as the entire state are tolerated and almost being encouraged [url=https://www.capradio.org/articles/2022/02/08/sacramento-took-nearly-a-year-to-create-a-new-safe-ground-homeless-shelter-we-look-at-why-it-takes-so-long/]LINKY[/url]

With the logic the city is using to impose fines on that guy, the residents of Sacramento should be able to sue the city for allowing so many bums to set up bum camps throughout the city. It's pretty sad how the homeless crackhead tweakers have more rights than those who actually pay taxes and otherwise contribute to society.

Poor guy needed to hire a good lawyer when the city first started attacking him. Now it might be too late. If he had a really good, really aggressive lawyer he could probably get most of the charges dropped. The city is abusing the guy and a good lawyer could embarrass them enough that they would drop most of the charges. Unfortunately it appears that the guy doesn't want to hire a lawyer so the city might just end up taking everything he owns.

The guy had multiple vehicles parked throughout his yard as well as a lot other crap littering the place. He claimed they were "operable" as in he could drive them. the law probably stated they need to be licensed and insured to be considered operable vehicles, common requirement. Sounds to me like he blew off the citations and the fines piled up on him. Now he's whining because he didn't follow the law and thought he was above it.

There are places you can live where they don't give a crap what you do with your property, I drive through these places all the time, they are shitholes.

I have no sympathy for him.

If you want to live in a town full of Fred Sanfords then you are a dirt ball. If you want to live in a town full of people that think the dump is their front yard, then you are a dirt ball. And if you want to call me an anal retentive azzhole to my face you can do it, once.

Just because some town doesn't give a crap doesn't mean everyone who lives there hoards junk in their front yard. Id rather live beside some guy with a couple clunkers in his driveway then beside some stuck up anal person who rats out every property around them that isn't perfect. Or worse if your place isn't all that bad and is the norm for the area and some stuck up a-hole moves in wanting to change everything. Are there any pictures of what this guys place even looks like? Need to see that before anyone can really pass judgement.

Ironically usually they end up causing problems for people like this guy when there's someone 10X worse down the street that everyone ignores.

I'll agree with John, and allow me to explain why

Sniper, not always, had a neighbor across the road that collected crap for years by going to auctions and buying whatever was left over for one price. It bothered some but not others, like myself. We do live on acreages which can make a difference but a lot of his belongings were visible as one drove by. I moved here 28 years ago and bought 5.5 acres of ground to be left alone and do as I want. I keep my place very clean, mowed and presentable at all times and always have. I have also run a business here for 25+ years with full support of the neighbors. When I needed a zoning variation to do so legally. The inspectors that came up commented "people like you are not the reason zoning laws are written" and the neighbors all sent letters in for me.
We now have 1M + houses being built very close by smile for me. he has passed on and a developer bought the land trying to put 22 houses on it that would definitely RUINED the area as it has been. After several meetings with the C/Council it was dropped to 12. in two years he has sold two lots to 1 person but they have yet to start building. I would rather have looked at the old guys junk than have the area ruined by a developer. Good news is we have another younger collector down around the corner smile. nice guy, doesn't bother anyone just likes junk.
had the guy been totally neglecting his property in a residential area different story, but that doesn't sound like the case as several neighbors were quoted as saying he kept it clean and nice appearing.
With what little I know it sounds like harassments on technicalities like not picking up dropped fruit from his trees. WTFCares?
No offence meant to you just a differing opinion beer

This guy that got hit with this big accruing fine needed better guidance on how to fight the code enforcement jackoffs.

There are codes that are favorable to classic cars and parts. In some cases, go down to DMV and non-op stuff.

Personally, if you drive by someones house and it looks OK, keep driving. What they do in their house, garage or backyard is none of you business as long as it isn't a danger to the community. Cooking meth, abusing kids, yeah that doesn't fly, cars and parts, meh. And please don't start about junk parts etc and vermin. If the area has fruit trees, you have rats/rodents all over the place! The parts are just a convenient excuse to hammer someone.

Some folks should read what is going on
before they post.

The gentleman inherited the house
from his parents.

He doesn’t seem to have a criminal history.
He wasn’t running a business out of his home.
He wasn’t manufacturing or selling illegal drugs
out of his home.
He seems to keep his grass mowed and his
home maintained.
