ALTHOUGH PEOPLE like to resist, change can be a good thing. Often times it is the necessary thing. Bellaire Village Council will meet Thursday....

What will change attitudes in Bellaire will be when every one is treated the same regardless of who and or what they are. I have seen one heck of a lot of dirty things go on in when I lived there. City bought asphalt and labor paving personal drive ways for one. I worked for the street department when I saw that happen a few times. Properties forced to be torn down because some one wants it while much worse properties stand and are even rented. I more than any one would love to see Bellaire straightened out. Regardless of where I am it will always be home. I wish Marling the best of luck and hopefully will be strong enough to do things right. Others have tried and been forced to quit or be fired for refusing to be a puppet. He has my support 100% !!!!
C'mon Turley, join me in turning attitudes around about the All-American town. Dan Marling is a go-getter without an agenda (other than pride and wanting to do the right thing) which is rare these days. Sometimes the hardest part of coming in after so many years of lax code enforcement or worse - no code at all- is getting them instituted and enforced. Kudos to Dan and others for taking on an uphill struggle.
I think they need to be more specific on just exactly what they mean by "alteration of buildings". Painting, patching a foundation, replacing a broken window or installing a simple hand rail on a set of steps in my opinion is not an alteration. Seems another one of those rules where they decide when some one breaking it and it's only enforced on some one whom some one may be upset with. Laws need to be clear and enforced equally. Not vague and enforced conveniently.
As the old saying goes: "You can put lipstick on a pig---but it is still a pig!"
