Mike Cooper’s Hissy-Fit

Follow this diagram or suffer the consequences of Sioux Falls code enforcement.

Mike Cooper from the City of SF responds to the code enforcement audit: audit-response

Highlights of his rant;

1. Audit was overstepping and not within city ordinance (how dare we expect our audit committee do their job and be critical of the GREAT Mike Cooper)

2. Opposes a citizen review committee of code enforcement (because golly - he has other protections in place to ensure everything is running in tip-top shape)

3. Complains the flowchart in the audit report has the appearance that code enforcement is ‘overly bureaucratic’ (Hey, Mikey, because it is!!!!!)

4. And finally he defends the fact that the process is NOT bureaucratic and tedious, than says the final audit report should be struck of any recommendations that would make code enforcement less bureaucratic and tedious, by telling them they need to follow bureaucratic ordinances (I think I had a heart murmur in the middle of typing that sentence.)

Enjoy – it’s red tape and bureaucratic pissing matches at its best!

That house looks more aesthetically pleasing than 90% of the houses that have been built in SF in the last 15 years. Maybe one of our local builders will use it.

Yeah, they are good at stealing boring ideas.
