I’m posting the links to three recent articles for my blog readers:
- The first story involves the efforts of a condominium association in Jupiter, Florida to use a dog’s individual DNA to help identify canine offenders (and their owners) of the community’s "pooper scooper" rules.
- The aggressive approach taken by a homeowners’ association in Pembroke Pines to collect delinquent maintenance and other fees–brought about in no small part by the foreclosure crisis–is the focus of the second article.
- Finally, a very sobering report from the Palm Beach Post on the battle brewing between Florida’s emergency managers and the Federal Emergency Management Agency as to whether every emergency shelter in the state is required to be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. According to this article, the cost to bring each of the hundreds of emergency shelters in Florida into compliance with the ADA may exceed One Billion Dollars–and the last time I checked, our state doesn’t have that kind of money in its cookie jar.
I hope you enjoy reading these three stories and look forward to your comments.
