In the Sept. 25 Renton Reporter, in an article about medical marijuana, Mayor Law stated to someone testifying before the council “because we don’t violate state and federal laws.”
What planet am I on? Was he talking about the city and its staff members or himself or who? The city allows developers to send yellow water down Greenes Stream and doesn’t stop it; the city allows developers to say they will save trees on the plat being develop but then the developer is allowed to clear cut with no discipline; the city allows some of its staff members to drive in my neighborhood and then call Comcast because our cable line isn’t connected to our house in the way they city would like — even though I live outside the city; the city shows us a drawing of putting a sewer line down Greenes Stream to my property and then through my backyard to my side yard and then down to Stonegate (they say “we do that all the time — don’t worry about it”). A developer out this way asks a prominent real estate agent to call and harass me and I don’t even know where this real estate agent lives or nothing about him. When I send the developer a note about this, nothing more happens. I guess environmental laws — and city ordinances are to be obeyed? I one time asked under the public disclosure law to see a file before I testified before the hearing examiner — but I was told “we can’t find that file.” The hearing examiner wasn’t too happy. All I want to do is protect my property — May Creek and Lake Washington — and neighborhood from developers who don’t obey city/state or federal laws. What laws is he talking about?
