To the editor:
Recently, my husband came home from work to help a
neighbor. He parked in the yard and ran across the street for about
The next day we received a letter from the city inspector with a
picture of OUR truck parked in OUR yard. By parking in OUR yard, we
had violated a CITY ordinance.
I was under the impression it was our property. We pay the house
payment, we pay the property taxes. Apparently, because our yard is
not gravel or asphalt we are not allowed to park in it. We were
given seven days to correct the problem or else face a $75 fine.
[to top of second column in this letter]
Have no fear, city of Lincoln, the violation was corrected as
soon as my husband finished helping our neighbor. Lincolnites, be
aware of what you are allowed to do on your OWN property.
