PARIS, IL. (ECWd) -
It has come to our attention that certain individuals appear to be immune from receiving tickets for Ordinance violations.
Paris City Councilman Kemper owns a house on the SE corner of the S. Central St. and Elizabeth St. intersection that appears to have never had the grass mowed this year.
I did not measure the grass, but it appears to be in excess of 2 feet tall. The house is uninhabitable and we understand has been "selected" to be torn down using public funds...we will talk about that in a later article.
Even if the house will be demolished, the grass should have been cut...or...the grass Ordinance revoked. Why should other residents of Paris be subject to tickets and fines if a city council member is not subject under those same conditions?
Would anyone else be afforded this opportunity?
