10/17/2019 A Voice From the Gallery

NOTE:  Significant beneficiary of this change Of Planning & Zoning is Alcester City Councilman Lance Johnson who by his admission in the March meeting wanted to build a garage on North Anderson Street to house his fifth wheel trailer.  First Lance Johnson has already violated “regulations, agreements and conditions running with land” on the parcel ID 01.11.10.1035.  #1. “… No structure shall be erected on any of said lots except for residential purposes…”Residential purposes shall be defined as a single family or duplex residences…”   #4. “No residential lot shall be re-subdivided…”

Folks we have a councilman who has seems to adhere to the theory of self-entitlement Alcester City Councilman Lance Johnson during the April Mayoral Election allegedly destroyed campaign signs put up by Mayoral candidate Mike Bucholz, a witnessed event.

Then Alcester City Councilman Lance Johnson got all Roosterie, a squawkin’, flappin’ his wings, puffin’ his chest out and struttin’ all stiff legged down to the Police Department alleging I trespassed on “his prop purty” and threatened to arrest me for criminal trespass.

What did I do? I asked the work crew where the building permit was, standing in the middle of Anderson Street. An’ ol’ Alcester Councilman Johnson got all bent out of shape. Imagine what he would have done if I had torn down his campaign posters?

Folks the definition of criminal trespass is below:

SDCL 22-35-6.   Entering or refusing to leave property after notice–Misdemeanor. Any person who, knowing that he or she is not privileged to do so, enters or remains in any place where notice against trespass is given by:

  1. Actual communication to the person who subsequently commits the trespass;             
  2. Posting in a manner reasonably likely to come to the attention of trespassers; 
  3. Fencing or other enclosure which a reasonable person would recognize as being designed to exclude trespassers; is guilty of a Class 2 misdemeanor.  However, if such trespasser defies an order to leave, personally communicated to him or her by the owner of the premises or by any other authorized person, the trespasser is guilty of criminal trespass, which is a Class 1 misdemeanor.  (Source: SL 1976, ch 158, § 35-2; SL 1977, ch 189, § 71; SL 2005, ch 120, § 290.) 

 But Alcester City Councilman Lance Johnson seems to think it is okay for him to rip down a campaign poster and signs—–stealing campaign signs violates the law.

So Councilman Lance Johnson it is okay for you to rip down and destroy campaign signs during an election but you threaten me for asking where your building permit is while standing in the middle of a public street?

Let’s talk about the building permit. FO Pat Jurrens says there is no requirement when the permit should be posted—

WRONG, LOOK AT THE PERMIT

LOOK AT THE APPLICATION—THIS IS RESIDENTIAL LAND NOT AG LAND—ALCESTER CITY COUNCILMAN LANCE JOHNSON FALSIFIED THE APPLICATION.

                                              THERE IS STILL NO PERMIT ON THE PROP-PURTY

 

ALL BUILDING MUST STOP UNTIL ALL VIOLATIONS ARE CURED!
