Georgia city sued by fed-up residents over 'ridiculous' fines for chipped paint, driveway cracks

Brucker is part of an Institute for Justice (IJ) lawsuit against Doraville, a town of about 10,000 people just northeast of Atlanta. The lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of Doraville "using its law enforcement and municipal court system for revenue generation."

  2. Doraville is known for many things and this shouldn't startle anyone. Also, the have a militant police force compared to our (fill in the blank) bunch.

  4. For years, borough residents have complained about the weak code enforcement. Now that the Borough implemented a stronger code enforcement policy, some residents are upset with the Quick Ticket program. We can't have it both ways. We either want the code to be enforced, or not to be enforced. Though it's not perfect, the policy has been very effective. Columbia is a much cleaner and a more well kept borough. Homeowners began repairing their properties and there is a renewed sense of pride in the community. This is a new program; just give it chance while the Borough corrects the issues.
