The Covina City Council, I'm sure, has the interest of the people and the community as a whole at heart. It certainly is their onus to maintain the pleasant appearance of Covina's neighborhoods and keep the community from deteriorating. ("RV Decision Postponed," Times, Oct. 4).
I'm sure as ombudsmen they also have the onus to investigate activities of government agencies that may infringe on the rights of individuals.
I'm certain the council, in its infinite wisdom, has considered the plethora of decisions mandated from the courts relating to the unconstitutionality of various laws such as above (that have held) that zoning restrictions purely for aesthetic reasons are unconstitutional.
To enforce these laws would necessitate an enforcing agent to enter onto private property, uninvited, without a search warrant and without any probable cause or an exigent emergency condition to mark the tires of all 30,000 motor vehicles-plus in this city. The agent would have to repeat this endeavor every 72 hours on each vehicle to ensure a balance of compliance to these laws. Failure to do so would also flirt with a violation of the Constitution.
