In this episode Jason and Andrew discuss an idea that they have floated around for a while, the City Code Task Force. What is that, you ask? Well, cities have way too many laws. Some are dictated by state law, some are necessary to the running of a city, some are outdated, some are overly punitive, some are duplicative… So, how do we get get a handle on local ordinances? How do we streamline the rules we are governed by? Some will say to just let it be until an ordinance causes a problem. This however creates an overabundance of laws that we can’t ever hope to understand or follow. It becomes cumbersome, and too easy to break the law. What if residents of a city came together to go over a city’s ordinances and told their government how they want to be governed? Enter the City Code Task Force. This sounds great in theory, but it’s even better in practice. This is our case study from Crystal, MN, who had great success with the Task Force. Now other city’s are asking how to do the same thing. This should be the way things are everywhere. Here is our story.
