Point of Sale to Set Sail!
By Andrew Richter
Well, it’s nice to see less government somewhere! At the July 14 city council meeting the city council voted to end point of sale inspections in section 425 of the city code by a 5-1 vote (Olga Parsons was absent). Removing this unnecessary nanny-state regulation will be a great thing for our community by letting the private sector deal with home buying and selling.
Laura Libby was the lone dissent. Removing one government regulation is one too many i guess. She also accused the other council members of “playing politics.” if you want to see an example of playing politics I suggest you see the Libby-led Green Step incident from last November where she and the three outgoing councilmen jammed that down our throat. That’s how the left acts when they lose power.
Of course, this was just the first reading of the ordinance change. There will be a second reading on August 18. I suggest you contact your council person and encourage them to vote YES to remove big government inspections!
