my daughter witnessed our "favorite" city commissioner's family blowing grass in the streets not long ago, wonder if they were cited.

check the curbs, see the leaves lets see if they get cleaned by storm water. I bet not, Other cities with this law cleans the leaves, by the way CPD goes with storm water because as of right now storm water does not have the power to write citations
no no no

heres an idea why not gravel in your whole front yard, then you can park in it too and get away with it, and if you are restoring an old car why not put your mailbox on the top of it then it would be concidered fedral property, then you can work on your car in the front yard and nobody has to worry about grass being blown out in the street cuz you dont have to mow.
Not impressed

Look I agree the city has some rediculous ordinances, such as the parking in the yard and the grass clippings. However, its still the law which means the police dept has to enforce it, its the same as speeding or disorderly conduct. There just doing there job the same as you and me. Now i'm not faulting anyone for getting on here and speaking their opinions but this is not the place to do it, if you have a major issue with this take it the next commission meeting. Express the way you feel there not on a stupid forum. Bitching about that stuff on here does about as much good as wiping before you poop.

As a citizen of Coffeyville I will be happy to take note of those who leave their clippings in the streets. You have to understand that if you leave that stuff in the streets it works it's way into small cracks, grows and causeS major cracking in the streets. It's your grass. So, clean it up please. Plus it looks much cleaner. Who wouldn't want that???

Hi! Clueless people can't get a clue. And they have no respect for the city. Thats sad. Those guy's are out there trying to help keep the streets clean and these people don't care. That sickens me.

the city needs to respect the people of this city and quit trying to force things upon us just because the people that think they know better want certain things.

Since you're so highly educated then you should know that grass clippings hoLd seedlings and when blown out by the mower, weed eater or blower they land in the cracks. I think it's called GERMINATION. Hummmmmmmm???!!!!!! LOL! Peace, my friend!!

The earth MOVES. Don't you get it?? The streets get cracks just like the walls in your house. And the constant weight from vehicles does a number on them as well. Common sense people. Where is it??

The seeds will blow on the wind, fly from a birds butt and be beaten down by the weight of the vehicles rolling over them... Clippings still do not grow....

But you are a lot of fun.. Peace be upon you too, my friend.

Lets all send city hall a ticket for the grass GROWING in the streets and not the grass that has been mowed. I just love going downtown and seeing 6 inch grass growing in cracks.

I don't get what the big deal is about getting grass in the street. Grass is natural and it's biodegradable, it's not like we're putting chemicals or trash in the street. And I'm not gonna sweep leaves out of the street when they fall off the trees and get blown by the wind back into the street anyway.

The city enacted an ordinace a year or so ago, making it illegal to blow the grass clippings into the street when you mow your lawn...Yet the city still blows them into the street. One of those "do as I say, not as I do" deals.

They were having a slow law making day and needed something to amke them feel relevant.
