i wish i could say that logic prevailed in the case of glendale city vs the collards but it appears that the power of bad media has helped glendale retreat.
after numerous news articles on CBS, KTLA and other local news sources, a front page article in the la times delivered the Coup d’Ã©tat bringing the glendale city council to their senses.
yesterday at the glendale city council meeting, the city lawyer stated that they would drop the $376,000 fine against the collards.
the fine was levied after the collards trimmed some oak trees on their property in response to a fire abatement notice from the city!
