    A city councilman, Mark Easton, lives in this neighborhood. He had
    a beautiful view of the east mountains, until a new neighbor purchased the
    lot below his house and built.


    Apparently, the new home was 18 inches higher than the ordinances would
    allow, so Mark Easton, mad about his lost view, went to the city to make
    sure they enforced the lower roof line ordinance. Mark and his new
    neighbor had some great arguments about this as you can imagine - not great
    feelings. The new neighbor had to drop the roof line - no doubt at great
    expense.

    Recently, Mark Easton called the city and informed them that his new
    neighbor had installed some vents on the side of his home. Mark didn't
    like the look of these vents and asked the city to investigate. When they

    I saw that on TV a little while back, and just for grins checked out snopes to see if the story was true. Apparently it is very true which just makes all of this that much more funny. Apparently he told the city he would remove the "Abstract art representing a cactus" only after receiving an apology from his neighbors for making his life miserable and costing him over $25K in construction delays.

    His neighbors apologized and he took the "art" down. :D :bow: :bow:
