I had occasion to talk to a big time, influential supporter of this rental inspection concept who when he heard about only enforcing it against out of county people, just shook his head. Another lawyer I talked to tonight said it's clearly an equal protection issue under the Fourteenth Amendment.
Now none ot fhat matters in a town where people acquiesce and don't have the inclination or resources to fight the man.....And The Man knows that.
Monday the City Council could approve the revised edition of the inspection law...It's been given the blessing of city counsel, so it will likely pass easily. Compliance will be an issue and maybe, someone will dispute it.
Either way the whole thing will not solve the stated rationale for the law.
