This ordinance, allows for the "government" to enter owned property and owner/occupant may be forced into court for not allowing an officer of code enforcement to enter his/her property.
After notice has been given, "Any inspection conducted pursuant to an order permitting right of entry"; is done still in violation of a person's right to privacy, and unreasonable searches.
The fee schedule passed at Tuesday's city council meeting specifies the fines for high grass and weeds, inoperable vehicles, littering and derelict/unsecure structures. Each fine class was reduced by $50 before final passage. All fines not specified in the fee schedule will be set at $50 for a first violation, $200 for a second and $450 for subsequent violations. News Star Article
It is not, for certain if there is any fees reduction, for seniors; and certainly nothing is in place for the disabled, veterans or otherwise.
Injunctive relief is necessary for further review.
At the least an elected official, should request an Attorney General's Opinion on the validity of this ordinance. However, it would appear, that every political office holder is in lock step, with this egregious attack against basic civil liberties of a specific group in this society.

Just recently, a mishap led to dire consequences.
Over Fifty (50) years of endeavor, nearly lost, affecting thousands.
I can only imagine, the depths of the agonizing disbelief of the efforts ancestors of our deliverance from captivity in Ouachita Parish, West Monroe, Louisiana and the twin city Monroe, must be reeling from in their resting places.
Things really began to melt, with the debacling circumstances of the South Monroe economic development apparatus devolving in to chaos; at the same time a Bail-bonding business was the scene of a double murder.How, could it thusly be so rude of an awakening to the public, under the gaze of "hard-fought desegregation" memorial pillar of the Wildcats Stadium.
Economic Development, Murder and School Desegregation.
The most recently debacle of the Ouachita Multipurpose Community Action Program and the thread like hanging on of its continuing through September 30th, of a hallmark "head start" program. 2016 is an unforgettable year.
OMCAP Head Start program to end
A watershed, Landmark program. Coupled with the recent up-stir at the Monroe City School Board; this latest incident should be proof, that we need to fight for "hard-fought" gains. When, School Board Officer Brenda Shelling, stood & disrupted the Board meeting, calling a white-male board member out, as an instigator, subjugater and "inside facilitator" for the destruction of the predominantly black, City School System.
The good doing white-folks' negroes, said Shelling needed to stop being a disrupter. From OMCAPS Head Start, to Neville High School's repair, the bastion for the "white seperatist, under the guise of desiring to participate in the federal court's mandates the white board members thoroughly disguised themselves, as seekers of justice.
And the gullible, "can we all just get along crowd" crowed in this garden of gethsemane, against the Truth. OMCAP's demise is the proof.
I would imagine the members of the court-ordered bi-racial committee of the early 70's, by federal injunction; are saying, "i'll fight you till hell freeze over" as A.G. Facen said, back then. But, this tired generational residue from back then, don't believe in " agitate, agitate" no more.
I can remember, my father's comments about the Rev. P. Rayfield Brown and the constant efforts in the formation of the "CAP" program. It dealt with Poverty and the affects of it; in education, health and housing. Folks had issues. Integration and desegregation were the watch words. Everyone in position were required to maintain the cause in their position(s).
In a lot of ways the ball has been dropped. And, when someone grabs the ball; those in position now, act like they don't know what is going on.
The Federal Courts in 2016 still dealing with desegregation?I recall not to many months ago, the superintendent, pushing "the Neville pull-out plan with BESE.
But, we want to act as if we are not aware, that the same folk are trying to desolve the Monroe City School System.
Shelling turned and shouted at board member Bill Willson, saying he was smirking.
"That's what you've done, you racist pig," she yelled at him, pointing to emphasize her words.
In a June 2015, "extemporaneous" ; community meeting concerning Neville High School repairs, "Board member Bill Wilson asked the crowd if they would like to see Neville become a charter school and no one raised their hand. When asked if they believe Neville should stay with the School Board, almost every person in the crowd raised their hands". North Monroe Skullduggery !!
Board member Jennifer Hanline said after the meeting; that it isn't a time to pick sides and board members should want to see the community get better.
She thinks Shelling's actions were unacceptable and that sort of behavior gets in the way of progress especially with a board working to help the school system.
"I want to say I'm so sorry we are suppose to represent our community and we're suppose to represent the people who elected us, and the children that are coming to our school", Board Member Jennifer Haneline said. Community-Members--Leaders-react-to-the-Monroe-City-School-Board-Meeting ..
What we need to understand is the suit, Jimmie Andrews et al was filed by black folk disenfranchised by segregation. And so, in the midst of a federal hearing of the status of Monroe City School Systems, everyone goes off their rockers, like they don't know; that the white-folks crying foul, cause they ain't invited "to the D.C. federal DoJ meeting".. .In the memorandum, Willson, Dayton and Haneline attest that board President Rodney McFarland and Vice President Brenda Shelling have frustrated their efforts to participate in implementing the consent decree by:
According to the memorandum, these statements "establish nonfeasance and bad faith on the part of the MCSB and, potentially, collusion between certain MCSB members and the United States with respect to the appointment of a court monitor. ...
"The United States was either complicit in the actions of the MSCB or, through nonfeasance of duty, ignorant of MSCB’s backroom tactics to select EPG as the Independent Court Monitor."
Discouraging them from attending a September hearing on consideration of unitary status. Failing in to adequately inform all board members of the ruling on unitary status.
Refusing to include all board members in the negotiation process for the consent decree adopted in December.
Refusing to include all board members in the process to select the independent court monitor required by the consent decree.
Soliciting the votes of board members Daryll Berry and Brandon Johnson to adopt the Educational Planning Group without prior discussion of the group with all members. Monroe City Schools
The illusion, that the very same set of folks who are the descendants of those, who perpetrated separate but equal; should be involved in conversations with DOJ is the epitome of white privilege.
Neville Group sought to intervene. To none effect. It is noted here because, folks is forgetting the doggone avarice amongst these illegitimate usurpers.
At a midday school board meeting Wednesday, Doug Lawrence, the board's attorney, said that five
communications from the court had moved within the past 24 hours. Those were:
The Tuesday order by Hayes that permitted NAFA, Jones and Hanks to intervene;
an order from Hayes vacating that order filed Wednesday;
notification that Hayes will no longer be involved in the case and setting all motions before James;
a notice referring the motion for permission to intervene before James that was filed Wednesday;
and a corrected caption on the notice filed the same day.
"Judge James personally is taking over the entire case, which is inclusive of the petition to intervene in the lawsuit filed by an outside group, so the prior judge that issued the prior ruling is no longer involved in the case," Lawrence said.
Court documents state anyone who opposes the request of NAFA and the two parents to intervene should file a memorandum in opposition within 21 days. After that, they "may file a reply within 14 days after the memorandum in opposition is filed."
Additionally, court documents indicate James does not plan to set a hearing date on the matter.
One Judge Overseeing entire Case.
Finally, the outcome of South Monroe Economic Development, is critical to Black advancement in Northeast Louisiana as a whole.
We do not have the leisure or the time, to linger and prolong "the real elephant that is in the room.We got to meet ourselves, and come to a conclusive outcome on the infighting amongst US. Whether it is on the streets or in the Council Chambers, Board Room, News Media or whatever.
We need to meet, "by the River at midnight" if need be, for Us to discuss Us!!
When the white-folks plot against black-advancement, where do they meet? Bayou DeSiard Country Club?
I Ain't Done Yet; but I got to go!!

President Barack Hussein Obama is being blamed for the execution of a Shia Cleric in Saudi Arabia, amid the insanity of a presidential campaign in which a megalomaniac is inciting global implosion on an altar of "pseudo-religious sacrifice" of "jihad john's" Islamic Faith.
America's fascination with a "megalomaniac" who doesn't really give a damn, about Islam; but does give a damn that Barack Hussein Obama was famously accused by the same Megalo, of being "unamerican or nonamerican" and himself [POTUS] a Muslim.
This is the same President, who was famously derided in his christian-belief under the tutelage of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, and the Reverend's Liberation Theology. Which theology is a basic staple of "the true black church"! In affect, american "robbed the african president of america" of his religion.
Historically, a twice done "damnable heresy" ! His african-father would have been born a Muslim, converted from christianity. This constant slight of his opponents with the Islamic adherence issue; is a "colonial-masters" racist attack, returned to the vestiges of the american slave market!
A note of interest, United States of America, and its causcasian demigoguery: Black America will not forget, how your voices harangued incidiously against your own President. And how your tea party, GOP, NeoCon republican movement has gotten us all the way to Oregon. There is no turning around, now. Hell and chaos is on the american horizon.
If Mr. Obama had more-aggressively attempted to save the Iranian Cleric, the republicans would all has further said, the prexy was a true "muslim-lover". No different than the ostracisation of caucasians who were "termed" nigger-lovers.
Finally, the "gun control" executive action is a necessity.
However, it is my hope, that clear-focus, would be taken to In-Custody-Deaths. It is our position, that this is a human rights issue. The killing of Americans, in "incarceration-centers" or in-police-custody; is a violation of human decency.
In Morehouse Parish Louisiana at the court-house, was the scene of a tragically killed inmate, while being transferred by a Fourth JDC, courthouse official police, the man committed suicide by-cop.
Inmate dies in Morehouse courthouse shootingA
Following a shooting at the Morehouse Parish Courthouse, one inmate is dead with no other injuries reported.
According to Sheriff Mike Tubbs, the MPSO responded to a shots fired call at the courthouse at approximately 2 p.m. on Tuesday. An inmate in the courthouse, whose name has been released as Keith Atkins, age 43, was confirmed dead via suicide following a scuffle outside of the courtroom. According to Tubbs, no personnel or civilians were injured when the incident occurred because of the location.
On February 16, 2015 Atkins was involved in a hostage situation involving his estranged wife. After Atkins was taken into custody — the hostage was freed after Atkins came in contact with the MPSO — he was booked on charges of second degree kidnapping (domestic violence), aggravated assault on a police officer, possession of schedule II (meth) and possession of a firearm while in control of a controlled dangerous substance.
According to Tubbs, as MPSO personnel was involved in the incident, the LSP was called into investigate. Tubbs said LSP detectives were at the courthouse Tuesday afternoon and will be releasing additional information as it becomes available.
The courthouse was closed for the remainder of Tuesday but is expected to reopen Wednesday morning.
