City of Flagstaff Website Lists A Property Maintenance Ordinance
By Elisha Dorfsmith
In the WTF (Welcome To Flagstaff) category, a friend just sent me a screen capture of the City of Flagstaff website showing a Property Maintenance Ordinance in the drop down menu.

As I have reported several times in the past, the Flagstaff City Council voted to reject a Property Maintenance Ordinance at their January 8, 2013 Council Meeting. Opponents believed it was dead but that turned out not to be the case.
The PMO reared it’s ugly head again in the first draft of the Regional Plan. I brought this up at council meetings and had several discussions with City staff and was told that this language was an oversight and would be removed.
When the public review draft was released a couple months ago, the PMO language was still there. I was told last week that this language would be removed in the final draft. I’ll believe it when I see it.

With the PMO now showing up on the official City of Flagstaff website, I think the City owes us an explanation. Why do they insist on pushing a Property Maintenance Ordinance on us when residents have made it clear that they don’t want one?
