Hundreds of People at House Party

PUBLIC SAFETY, UNLAWFUL USE

Resident report:  "There were probably 300 to 400 people at the party. It was in a vacation house that was rented in violation of the governor's order.   Multiple neighbors called the police but it took hours to break it up. Our cars in our driveways were completely blocked by illegal parkers.  That party was a Covid-19 petri dish."

Would-Be Buyers Scared Away

DRIVES DOWN PROPERTY VALUES

Resident report:  “I recently witnessed the following:  Real Estate Agent parked in front of the listed home and prospective buying couple visually surveyed the property and the area around the house. At same moment, about 5 young kids went to max volume with the laughter and noise typical of kids jumping into the swimming pool on hot afternoon. The buyers pointed to the rental sign in front of the house and after a few minutes of conversation, all drove away without even entering the house that is for sale.”
