Appalled at mechanic citation

Letters to the Editor


I am appalled that the city of Grand Coulee would issue a citation and impose a fine to the mechanic and an outstanding person. He will give you the shirt off his back. The other businesses who have complained are being petty. We live next door to The Picards, and we hear nothing coming from his garage. He does not block the road, there are no signs, as my husband Mark stated before. At this point, I am ashamed of our city council and we will be there to support the Picards when his day in court does come. This is one he should win. Maybe the city should ban yard sales too; they are operating a business without a license, aren't they.

To Stephanie Graves - Not to mention yard sales necessitate the use of lots of signs in the yard; at the corners of the block; at major intersections; etc., and not always collected up after, creating an unsightly town. Yard sales can, and often do create some serious traffic congestion. I would think this a greater safety concern than a mechanic working in his driveway or garage.
