17. That is why you should ask her for a letter stating WHY and ask her to please site the ordinance.

 

Look if your Municipality has posted its ordinances on line. Many have.

Now, all Municipalities MUST have their ordinances available to the public. Many are kept in whatever passes for their City Hall. Many are kept in the County Courthouse. The Key is you have to be ABLE to read them to know what you can and can not do. If the ordinances are NOT available, then they are invalid.

Please remember "Available" means it is available to the public during normal business hours. Pre-Internet it was often hard to find them, but they have to be some place. Thus keeping them in a back room of City Hall, that is only open 9 am till noon and 1:00 pm till 4:00 pm may be sufficient. Worse it may be OK, if only an handful of people know where it is, and those people are NOT the people working in City Hall.

Thus your best bet is to write a nice letter to the Solicitor asking if she can mail you a copy of the law that forbid you from having livestock and the law in regard to garages.

I would also walk down to City Hall and ask if they have a copy of the City Ordinances.

Please, if your municipality has a library, many such libraries contain those City Ordinances, thus to to the library and ask. I have found such libraries a wealth if data when it comes to city ordinances.
