Code Enforcement,
The tan SUV with TX plates has been illegally parked/stored/unmoved/abandoned next to Sundance Park on Sycamore Street for 8 days in a row now.  Favoritism.
This tan SUV with TX plates has been illegally parked/abandoned/unmoved/stored next to Sundance Park on Sycamore Street, when the blue car with the TX plates was finally removed after being stored/unmoved/parked/abandoned for all of July, 2013 and part of August, 2013.
Code Enforcement got the blue car to leave the area, but not the tan SUV.  Why?  The photos show that this vehicle needed to be tagged, too, and moved.
So, it forces me to write another e-mail complaining about how Code Enforcement does not do its job, even though they are paid to do it.
This tan SUV that is in these pics can be parked at the owner's house right next door with a 2 car garage, 2 car driveway, and 2 personal vehicle parking spaces in front of their house.  That is where this car belongs, per home owner parking spaces allowed in our City.  These are new neighbors to our neighborhood.  They do not know our parking laws.
Here is a link to the photos for proof showing the tan SUV illegally parked/stored/abandoned/unmoved next to Sundance Park on Sycamore Street for 8 days in a row now.
I  live next to Sundance Park.  I don't store/abandon/park/unmove my car next to Sundance Park.
Other neighbors live directly across the street from Sundance Park.  They don't store/abandon/park/unmove their vehicles next to Sundance Park.
I am sure this tan SUV with the TX plates will be informed of our parking laws, so the owners can keep it on their own property immediately.
While you are at it, you might inform the tan SUV illegally parked/stored/abandoned/unmoved on Hoover next to the park near Louisville Elementary across from Lois for months on end now, that they have their vehicle illegally parked/stored/abandoned/unmoved. 
I know for a fact that Code Enforcement can stop and talk to anybody about parking laws without a complaint being filed. 
But I am finally filing a complaint about that tan SUV today on Hoover.  It is on a bend in the road where one cannot see the vehicle until one is on top of it.
Here is a link to the photos for proof, I took periodically, showing the tan SUV illegally parked/stored/abandoned/unmoved on Hoover Street, since April, 2013.
