Guess the cops are making up the rules as they go along and that's a game I have no chance of winning. Really sucks.
It's time to tell them, if you can't articulate an exact law or ordnance I'm violating& how your in violation tell them
DO NOT STEP FOOT ON MY PROPERTY AGAIN, then get their names & badge numbers & file complaints against them every time.

Just to reiterate, talk to Code Enforcement (as mentioned) and get the pertinent information you need to defend yourself. As long as you have the exact language from the law, you are covering yourself. And yes, continue to file grievances against them for harassing behavior, up to and including mayor and council if they continue to do so.

Thank you for all of the great advice. As it happens, we are friends with the daughter of the head of city council here, so that's encouraging. I also re-read the ordinance regarding the parking of large vehicles and I don't know how I missed it, but it lists BUS among the other large vehicles. I measured and I'm 70 ft from the street.
In other news, I saw the neighbor taking their dog for a **** in the city owned woods behind my house. I tried to take a pic and that's when they started yelling and called the cops again. According to this officer, it's okay for them to do that. SMH. I informed the officer that I was in compliance with ordinance 452.16 (a) and she replied that it didnt matter because the bus was an eyesore.
You know, if they really want to see what an eyesore looks like I think I could arrange it......

Hi,
There is an old discussion here about that somewhere?
Because a grumpy neighbor kept calling land use about an abandoned vehicle I had to tag,insure and primer way before I was ready but monthly insurance 12$ and inspection and a case of spray bombs isn't that bad to get rid of a neusance.
And can't store any framing material in sight of someone passing bye?

Also I had the Boy Scout troop I work with bomb the bus and they were also more than happy to paint eye soar and a crude red,white,blue eagle on that neighbors side of the bus and no more problems with county land use.
