Dear City of Minneapolis,

I really appreciate your proactive efforts to keep the city clean and wonderful for all of its residents.  But, please, for the love of God, stop sending inspectors past my house.  It can only bring me pain.

Sincerely Yours,


Yep.  They did it again.  For the second time in 2 months, some sort of city inspection has revealed some sort of issue on my property.  The first time, it was a broken window.  Fine!  I repaired broken window like a champ, even though it was too cold for the glazing compound to dry properly.  That escapade only required 2 trips to the home depot, $3.56 worth of plexiglas, and some glazing compound.

But now?  Today we received a letter informing us that our sidewalk is unsafe!?!  And needs to be fixed!?!  AND IT WILL COST US BETWEEN $950 and $1400 FOR THEM TO FIX.  This is a PUBLIC sidewalk, friends.  And, to be quite honest, it is the prettiest piece of pavement on our property (not to mention one of the only pieces of pavement since we’ve ripped up the rest of it…).  I would post a picture, but it’s too dark out there to take one now.  So you’ll just have to take my word for it when I say that the sidewalk is perfectly aligned, flat, walkable, whatever.  I have my suspicions that the City is out to get us.
