Breaking the law

Original post made by Not so fast on Dec 19, 2007

From today's PA Weekly:

"LAYING DOWN THE LAW ... December seems like a good time to review some of Palo Alto's lesser known laws, and their penalties. Raccoon sellers can be slapped with a $250 fine and those who keep bees close to a property line can be charged $100. Using a false name at a hotel might earn you a $50 fine, but landing your plane somewhere other than the airport will cost $1,000. If for those planning to dress up as Mayor Yoriko Kishimoto for Halloween, think again — impersonating a public official will cost $250."

If this is the case why hasn't Ms Kishimoto been fined???

Sorry Walter, you aren't important enough.
NSF only cowtows to certain city officials and bullies others.
