Cheesy? What about property owners making no effort?

Re: City fines, takes motor inn to court over flashing Christmas lights, News, Oct. 31

Christmas lights are cheesy? What about the ‘no bikes’ signs peppered all over our sidewalks? To use the mayor’s words, that’s “going beyond the appropriate to being quite gaudy.” I don’t understand why the city seems to be targeting people who make an attempt to improve their homes and places of business, yet appear to do nothing to those who let their homes and storefronts deteriorate into shambles.

Buildings with boarded-up windows, no siding, broken steps, mildew, yards crammed with junk – that’s cheesy.
