Ordinance #2740( An unfunded city-wide mandate) was passed with a resounding 6 to 1 vote, and it allows for the citizens of Cedar Falls to forcefully give the government keys to their comercial properties through universal ‘lock boxes’. The intent of the program is to provide increased safety and protection to personal, private property which include businesses, apartments and some rental houses– which by the way– comes at the expense of furthering wayward erosion of fundamental constitutional rights.
I’d like to know how putting the keys to your building in a universally accessible box will increase safety and protection? You might as well be hanging the key on a hook right outside the door.
The amazing thing is that the City Council doubled down in the face of resident outrage and passed this outrageous law.
