    Over 8,400 code violation citations issued by the City of Bowling Green in the year of 2007 does not show they are doing their job well nor does it show they are doing it with compassion. It shows they are abusing their power and "sticking their noses" in where they are not needed nor wanted. They live to serve over zealous "citizens" with nothing better to do and feel they have the right to control and command unfair action of other citizens of Bowling Green by constantly reporting every little possible violation. Around "town" the code enforcement board has the reputation of unfair politicing and harassment. They constantly inspect, site, and harassment parts of town while other parts of town go completely unchecked. Their job isn't an "honorable"'s one of "big brother" and "big city" city policies and harassment. If this is the only award I could win, I would be ashamed to claim it. In the 1970's the title for these people was "weed inspector" still should be!!!
