“If something is not permitted, then it is automatically prohibited”.
Think about that statement.
This city’s government has the attitude that, if an activity is not specifically addressed in the city code and permitted by that same code, then it is illegal.
“The city had no laws pertaining to residential gardens, which means they were technically not allowed.”
According to the city’s laws, if something is not permitted it is prohibited.
“Right now, if there is not something expressly in this code that says that you can have one, you technically can’t,” Blakeman confirmed.
This attitude, folks, is the very definition of tyrrany
I would expect that the folks in Columbiana Ohio should think about this in the upcoming elections, wouldn’t you?
