  1. This does not surprise me one bit. When the county of San Bernardino passed Ordinance 3973 to quiet a small bunch of gadflies code enforcement essentially took over the roll of the sheriffs department and the costs. There were already laws addressing trespass, noise, speed, disturbing the peace, curfew, drunkenness or any number of the problems people have with one another that were handled by the sheriff.

    These gadflies have created a community problem out of their own personal inability to interact with their neighbors. They want others through government action, to deal with a personal nuisance with draconian laws that effect every law abiding citizen but have no effect on those who never follow the laws anyway.

    There are avenues to address personal nuisance that does not infringe upon the rights of others, the peaceful assembly of those who use this area for legitimate recreational purposes and involving code enforcement.

    Lets face it when you have code enforcement monitoring a family for a weekend staging permit something is wrong. Hopefully with this shortfall of money the public will be without the code enforcement public nuisance
