City of Philadelphia department of Finance Unfounded fine for littering Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
11th of Jul, 2011 by User656742
A letter I addressed to the Mayor of Philadelphia, will explain it all: Dear Mr. Mayor Nutter, I am emailing you out of frustration. We recieved a code violation for littering in Philadelphia, at 743 South 6th Street, at 7:03am on June 15th.
We are not in Philadelphia our business is in New Jersey, Willingboro NJ to be exactly. We recieved this violation for $150.00 saying our name was on some litter? We are a retail business and have been in business for over 37 years, our name can be on many items that we do not have control over. Furthermore no one who works for us was in Philadelphia in June much less June 15th, we are a small retail store and I question all my employees. Secondly anyone could put anyone's name on litter including your name and leave it anywhere in the City and then the City of Philadelphia finds it and then sends us or you a fine for $150.00, which now we have to take time off from work to respond to a false statement. This is a heck of a way for Philadelphia to incur income just sending out random fines. If Philadelphia has proof that someone from Sports Paradise of Willingboro drop litter in your City, that would be different but no person responsible to Sports Paradise littered in your City. It is like saying every Coke can you are going to fine Coke, or every Marlboro butt you are going to fine Marlboro. I have instructed our counsel that if Philadelphia pursues this issue we should contact the local media to show how Philadelphia is randomly sending out fines. We tried to call the department of code enforcement to see how this can be resolved since we are not the responsible party leaving the litter, and they explained we have to show up August in court. No, not going, to waste our time or my employees time for an offense not caused by us, that you have no proof it was Sports Paradise, there is no reason to come to Philadelphia and incur costs because someone in your code enforcement dept found something with our name on it. I am informing you the Mayor of Philadelphia this is ridiculous and unfounded and I want your City to recine such a fine. Sports Paradise or any of it's employees, did not litter, anyone could drop litter in your city with anyone's name just for harasment. Please do not hinder the reputation of Sports Paradise with such unfounded charges. Sports Paradise has not committed any unlawful actions. Respectfully, --
