Abuse of Power

The Nevada City Council decided that the Patriot Act is unconstitutional! Did I miss something? When were they appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court?

I do not fear the Patriot Act; I do fear the steady erosion of my property rights by this council. The new tree/vegetation ordinance is an example of arrogance running amuck. They have no concept of responsible home ownership. Their appointed Planning Commission insults property owners at meetings and puts Commission whims ahead of the legitimate desires of property owners. It is time to take away from the Council the power they have abused.

Is it also time to recall this City Council? This Council has demonstrated that they only listen to special interest groups, not the property owners of Nevada City.
