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......
At this point you are fallowing the rules. Document everything. I got to thinking even if your not to big on trusting code enforcement it might not hurt just to talk to them see what they say. It will show you made an effort to fix any problems they have. Next do a search in your city ordinance to see if they have ANYTHING any were that says ANYTHING about eye sore or anything like it. They may be pulling from one law to satisfy there visit. I'd talk to code though. I'm not backing them or anything I'm going off of what I seen work. Its hard for anyone to say your illegal if its in writing and in there hands.

Is it the same police officers that keep showing up?

I dislike making lite of religion mine yours anyone's that said . you can go to Universal Life Church - Become a Minister Online get ordained and simply tell them its a church bus .

The rules about churches are mostly vague the IRS actually puts it in writing in there publication about section 501 C3 that you are not required to apply to be considered a church for tax purposes but its a good idea if " your taking donations " .

Many locale and state laws are not applicable to a religious group . They also use the IRS standard to determine what is or is not a church .
You probably could keep the yellow if wanted as long as you make sure to post max passenger number under 15 I believe is the point between a commercial bus and non for drivers lic.

Myself have been ordained since 1988 . I also understand the cop thing worked as a firefighter / paramedic and on my days off dispatcher many officers are just there to do a job and help . but you have far to many that put that badge an gun on and feel they are right and the civilians need to follow every order immediately to many laws are written n such a sloppy manner that they can be interpreted to mean what ever someone wants them to be .

in my neighborhood I finally figured out who doesnt like my Bus.. the same lady who HATES my christmas lights with a passion..

granted, I try to put my bus away each night into my storage unit, occasiuonally I keep it home because I know I want to work on it the next AM early.. or in the case tonight I'll bring it home because im going to go on a trip in it starting tonight..

I looked and asked and called and theres ZERO restrictions on Holiday lighting in my neighborhood.. which means i can put my up my kickass Christmas lights display... that will shine lots of light across the street... oh but the bus parked in front of the house will block the light........

I just love the stuff you hear when laying on the floor inside a bus with the windows open and the peiple outside dont know your inside working... it seems sound carries VERY WELL from outside to inside of a bus...

I also learned that I believe she Beats her foster / adopted kids... one of these days im gonna catch her in the act (or my bus surveillance will).. then I can turn her in because thats no laughing matter..

Only once someone complain (note on my windshield) about me parking in front of their house. I usually park in front of my house but somebody else parked there. I like that they handled it without the police. But in your case that's just wrong to call the cops first without talking to you first.

This is my dream and I'm not letting anyone take it away.
I wouldn't do that. Contact your city councilman and get him involved. Just standing up and complaining won't do much.
