Letter: Code enforcement crucial to town


As the Town of Prescott Valley Primary Elections approach, we, as residents and property owners within the town must ask each candidate and especially those proposing "limited government" where they stand regarding the enforcement of the Town Code.

Are you as an elected official going to allow trash or refuse to build up on the property next to you? Are you going to allow travel trailers or junked vehicles to be parked in your front yard or the front yard of your next door neighbor?

Are you going to allow unkempt properties to diminish the value of your property? Are you going to cut the budget of Community Development additionally so the Town Code can't be enforced?

Unfortunately, as one drives up and down the streets of Prescott Valley, not every property owner takes pride in ownership and therefore, government involvement is needed to protect the health, well being, and property values within the Town of Prescott Valley.

If you as a candidate running for mayor or council don't think code enforcement is necessary to keep Prescott Valley from becoming unsightly, then go live in the sticks where no one cares what their neighborhood looks like and elect someone to serve who does have pride in our community.

A quick search on the county GIS website finds no one by the name of Jim Paris owning property in Prescott Valley. Is this a ficticious name? Are you really a Prescott Valley property owner? What ever the case, as many have already stated, there are neighborhoods in the area that have HOA's that you can go tattle to. In the mean time SHUT YOUR PIE HOLE or move back to California or whatever liberal hell hole you came from. We do not need anymore government in our lives.

Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy
I wish my problems were as small as yours.

Everyone else- keep in mind the BTK serial killer was a code enforcement officer. Coincidence?
I think not.
There is a level of psycosis in believing you know how someone else should live their life.

Gee Jim maybe you should have purchased a house in The Ranch so the HOA could take up your fight! Or maybe you should have purchased in an area with a controlling HOA presence that dictates everything from your style of mailbox to the color of your front door. If you are not paying my mortgage or taxes you have no right to tell me how to maintain my property.
We purposely avoided all developments with HOAs so that we no longer had to fear that someone would complain about our motorhome, the length of our grass, where we planted trees on OUR property and whether my neighbor liked my choice of landscaping and flowers.
Maybe your neighbor could use a hand cleaning up their property - have you ever offered to help? My guess would be no you simply stare out of the window to watch and record all of the things that you find 'unkempt'. We certainly don't need more government rules and regulations to tell us how to maintain our properties. Are you an elitist or just a jerk?

Mine Too-------my neighbors house is painted green with purple trim and it is also bringing down my house value. I have tried selling my house twice but as long as there's a neighbor next door with green and purple painted house that ain't gonna happen anytime soon. Junk would be easier to control than trying to get someone to repaint their house.

Article comment by: Jim's the problem

Iam one of your neighbors Jim and all you two do is complain about all of us who live by you and maybe that's why we refuse to clean up our yards is because we are sick and tired of you mouthing off about us to other people.

O PLEASE! The reason I moved to PV was so that I can have junk cars in my yard along with my junk yard dog.
