Enforcement problems dealing with landscapers. I'd call it a blind eye by the police to benefit the wealthy of the town. How hard can it be to hand out a violation during routine patrols.
Leaves on walks, get a broom and a rake.
Now if you can't find your child who's lost in the high grass then that's an issue.

Gardeners who are solo workers need to work. Like many they need to pay rent, support the family. It's not so much what residents, rich or poor, need, it's whether a solo outside worker can safely do his job. I vote yes. The San Jose MN has an article indicating that gardeners are now allowed to work under certain conditions.

I live in Woodside and just had a physical inspection resulting in the cancellation of my insurance. The company wanted me to clear all trees and brush within 100 feet of the I guess that means they want my neighbor to do a lot of work! Regardless...I want my house to be safe too and I cannot clear that all by myself!
