We live on a small road that is a dead end & only abt 1.5 cars wide. It was all "town" until a developer came around wanting to buy up houses to develop a lot behind us. Well they conned 3 houses into getting anexed into the "city" so now we have 3 houses that are "city" & of those 3 because they were not bought out the one that was essential to the developer threatened to sue & was the only house bought out. That one house is now a RENTAL & they have parties up to 2x a week & up to 12 cars parked on our road. So needless to say if my subcompact can't fit thru between them all I'm not happy! KWIM? Now since the house w/ the cars is "city" I called their PD & they said they'd put the street on their list to check. I don't know if that was BS or what cause there is still one car there & no ticket!!! The plows had to drive around the vehicle! And I called because as the "town" we are not allowed to park on the road at any time after Nov 15 til Mar 15 and I'd imagine because our road isn't too wide that it makes things difficult for emergency vehicles to pass wich is why they put up the sign in the first place. As we protested them having a "no parking" all yr long sign there because they put it up after a few neighbors had lil Pampered Chef & whatever parties at the same time on ONE DAY ONLY. But this "party house" is once a week minimum! Either way there's NO TICKET! I don't know that they have left and come back but they were there at almost midnight still when I went to bed. Should I call the Sheriff? As the Sheriff is the "town's" law enforcement. WWYD? I want to be able to drive down my road when I come home from work & have our road plowed decently.

I'd get a plow myself and demolish their car. I'd actually call the police and explain it to them. Even if they don't come out to investigate the problem, if you continually report the issue, they will at least know about it. If there are other people on your street, it would be good for them to call in also. If they're shrugging the problem off you need to shove it in their face, I say!

I want to call the county sheriff as if the PD won't do jack bout it, then the sheriff could. They have jurisdiction over the whole county sooooooo. But hubby said not to start stuff, but man if we could get ticketed why shouldn't they??? Plus they had one car remaining and it didn't move til 2pm this afternoon! GRRR!

The first thing I would do is check with the county and see if the contractor had a right to use the right-of-way to get to the houses he built. The right-of-way may have been to your house only. I would for sure get the county in on it.

The developer has not built any homes he's building a STRIP MALL. He bought one house & has 1 others under exclusive contract to purchase & 1 house that is done w/ the devloper's BS & is now refusing to sell after being anexed to the city & the developer defaulting in his purchase agreement. But with WM going out & there being no big draw he can't afford to buy the lot behind the 3 houses + all the houses & get tenants. He's making it all commercial. But the house that was sold due to a threat of being sued by the homeowner. The problem as it's a rental to 2-3 single guys probably mid 20's - early 30's until the guy can get his act togeather to buy out the other 3 properties & or the economy improves. IMO the city only owns 1/4th of the road/just whats infront of those 3 houses the remaining 9 houses in our neighborhood are ALL township. Sorry it is rather confusing.
