City People

We’ve had the man from the city out here to draw up plans for a gray-water system. He’ll be back soon to redesign our outhouse as well. He was a very nice guy, and he’s being very helpful, but I’m frustrated by the local government’s involvement in our lives. I want them to stay away, to concern themselves with legitimate areas of their authority and not with my home. They mean well, I’m sure - like our code officer, the evaluator who just came is patient and friendly, and didn’t seem to mind that we currently weren’t up to code, but I can’t help be feel that as a decent person, he shouldn’t be working to enforce unnecessary requirements. It would have been nice to have stayed under the radar.
