As a citizen of Archer City, I have great concern with how complaints are handled by the city. As it was explained to me(by a city employee) if a complaint by a citizen is made to the city, city personnel will contact the person of the address in concern and advise them that someone has made a “complaint”. Understandably then, the person complained on starts to assume who the complainant is. This presents a major problem amongst “neighbors “and AC citizens.
It is beyond me, as to why the city cannot address this matter as a city matter only. The city has Ordinances and codes that address all kinds of matters. These matters shouldn’t only be addressed when there is a citizen complaint. Code violations should be enforced at all times and apply to all people equally.
The standard letter and Courtesy calls that the citizen who receives a complaint receives needs to be modified and addressed from a city’s officials position and not as from a citizen.
I am now in a position to do damage control with a neighbor, who received word that a “complaint” had been filed against their property and unfortunately, they assumed it was me. Please do not allow this practice of notification to continue, it is grossly unfair to all involved.
