Remember back in November when the building inspector (Brad Cherry) was acting as the code enforcement officer and wrote a citation to a citizen because the house numbers were not on the side of the mailbox? This issue was of utmost importance! More important than other unsightly areas and problems in the county.
The citizen cited lives in District 4, Comm. Craig Salmon’s district. He had 10 days to meet the criteria requirement, according to the citation. He already had numbers at the top of his mailbox, but that wasn’t good enough; they had to be on the side of the mailbox.
Comm. Salmon doesn’t have numbers anywhere on his mailbox, but he hasn’t been cited nor has he taken action to make sure he is in compliance with Jasper County’s “laws”.
Here is Comm. Salmon’s mailbox from the left and from the right:
There are no numbers anywhere on his mailbox. “Site addresses are required by the Jasper County Ordinances as well as the residential building codes.”
Comm. Salmon, how about following the rules that your own constituents are being cited for? We will check again in 10 days!
