Last year I had to live in my car for 6 months because my tenant told me a week ahead of move out date that they weren't leaving and I couldn't move back into my home after college.
I gave these tenants reduced rent, a four months addition on their lease, and one month FREE, and then said in writing that they would be out on move out day, but later decided it was more convenient for them to work the system and make me evict them from my own house.
This was someone I knew from high school who went through a divorce and was "becoming homeless because the ex-husband was selling their house in one month."
I was the only person foolish enough to rent to them with their two huge dogs, and I didn't get a SH rental permit because it was such a rushed, charity case - and my house is quite new and well maintained so when I eventually had to get my permit the inspector was in and out in 5 minutes.
Because I tried to help someone in a dire situation, I was liable to give back all past rent - all of it - even though they got 16 months of below market rent.
They then got to stay in my house for 6 months rent free. And I had to foot the bill for lawyer fees.
NEVER again will I try to help someone in need of housing. ... See MoreSee Less
STORMWATER NEWS: Your dog produces an estimated 3/4 pounds of poop per day. It is not biodegradable and it doesn’t act as fertilizer. Dog diets are more similar to human diets than to those of wild or farm animals, meaning that leaving your dog’s waste out along the side of the road, in Conant or Crossroads Park, athletic fields at Norris or Labrie Field or even in your yard is just like leaving raw sewage out in public. Not only is it smelly and gross to see or step in, dog poop also causes very real public and environmental health risks. As the feces break down with rain and snow melt, poop particles flow untreated into storm drains and streams, ending up in our waterbodies and rivers. One gram of dog waste can contain twenty-three Million fecal bacteria, and spread Giardia, Salmonella, and parasites to other pets and humans as well.
Many of our Southampton parks and athletic fields have kiosks with complimentary pet waste bags. To learn more about stormwater and take the PUP pledge to take responsibility for your pet's waste, visit the Think Blue website. thinkblueconnecticutriver.org/pet-waste-management/ ... See MoreSee Less
We always pick up our dog poop as we are responsible dog owners!
What about all the salt that washes down the drain?
Do they have one for Democrats...
It sounds like your one of those libbies running the town sad.
