update .since i first posted this thred. I did what the former village code inspector told me to do, becuse the village said they could not do anymore enforcement on village code and the village court could not do anything more but fine the business. The depew court let the business plead no contest in this matter. and said they could not do anything more for me to en force the village code , The the code enforcement officer said that i would have to take the matter to supreem court and hire a lawyer. So i spent money and hired a lawyer to help me get the business to follow the code of the village of Depew and correct the problem which is a violation. NOW THE LOVELY vILLAGE IS TRYING TO PROTECT THE BUSINESS BY SAYING THEIRS NO CODE ON RECORD ANYMORE WE GOT RID OF IT. THATS BS BECAUSE ITS ALSO A STATE CODE AND I AM READING IT NOW ON THE VILLAGE WEBSITE. WHY IS THIS VILLAGE PROTECTING BIG BUSINESS. Again this seems corrupt. The rite of the village is to protect the residents. I cant believe they will give a lawyer the runaround. They need to be on my side in this matter .
Secondly, when you say "The depew court let the business plead no contest in this matter," you need to understand how the legal system works. They can't prevent a defendant from pleading a certain way. If you ever find yourself on the wrong end of an unjust lawsuit, you will learn to appreciate the system.
Finally, with all due respect, you need to get rid of the "They need to be on my side in this matter" attitude. It's not their job to necessarily side with you. Like you, the restaurant is a tax payer, and should afforded the same rights as you.
The resturant has rights, but they dont have the rite to be in violation of the village code. They were given citations to fix the problem. If i were as a resident doing something thatis agaist the village code .I would be fined and be responisble for the issue. The point is that now that i have legal counsel to address this issue in a higher court , why is the village trying to stop me from doing so, by not giving me the ok to move forward. They are the ones who told me need a lawyer because they couldnt persue it any further in their court system. Its costing me out of pocket money to fight a big business. So when you say i have they need to be on my side attitude, I disagree. the village adminstrater, code enforcement knew well about the issue and agreed they were in violation, and agreed something should be done. Yes the business pays taxes but so do I. Just be responsible for ones actions.
;( simple solution, make the business correct the problem enforce the code.
Vietnam 1967 ,so you payed a lawyer to help you resolve this issue and he draged it out for a year and made you spend money . To fail getting anything done again in this matter.The system is not working to protect you and fight for you even when your paying them. All the comments on telling you you need a lawyer to eforce the village codes and it didnt work, I guess its hard fighting millionaires their pockets are deep. I feel the officials are blowing you off and this matter , becuase you have taken every step possible to address this issue and nothing ever got done.
The POLITICIANS, NEED TO START HELPING THE MIDDLE CLASS,AND STOP BLOWING OFF THE ISSUES THAT WE HAVE. ITS ALL ABOUT HELPING AND PROTECTING THE RICH. I CANNOT AFFORD THE FIGHT THE BIG MONEY BUSINESS, WHO IS THEIR TO HELP ME. SOMEONE NEEDS TO FIGHT FOR THE LITTLE GUY.
What is this MIDDLE CLASS you speak of.... classing people at all is... well... CLASSLESS! and also foolish!
