The lawsuit, filed by San Carlos Deputy City Attorney Linda Noeske in San Mateo Superior Court on Jan. 22, seeks a permanent injunction forcing House to maintain garbage service. City officials are also seeking to recoup from House the costs of the lawsuit.
The lawsuit claims House broke the city’s municipal code requiring all residential, commercial and industrial properties to contract with Allied Waste for pickup at least once a week — a standard requirement in most cities, San Carlos Deputy City Manager Brian Moura said.
Moura said the suit was the result of complaints from neighbors about House burning garbage. House says he only burns wood. http://www.examiner.com/a-1187195~City_sues_man_for_canceling_trash_service.html -via Geek Like Me
