Message :   http://www.aurorany.org/Staley2.html Weird. But what does that mean - a structure on 327 that extends to 331 Main St? Did they build something on someone elses land? That cant be legal?

Message :   I have read and reread all the remarks and cannot find one even potentially libelous remark, and since it is all in print certainly no slander. Why the threatening tone? Observations and opinions are free speech, yes?

Message :   because code enforcement here is a shambles - the Officer, an employee whos salary we pay, runs wild & is inconsitent arbitrary, biased, unfair, - ignores law for some & invents new rules for others, while our VB, PB, ZBA, & CPP dont sack him. Why????
