I strongly support the rights of homeowners to make improvement to their properties, and make necessary repairs and upgrades with minimal government intrusion.

I believe it is time to revisit our municipal code as it pertains to such issues. While there must be rules, they must make sense and be applied consistently. Our Community Development Board does outstanding work, which is often overlooked. However, I also believe that homeowners should have the right to appeal decisions of the board.
