A REPLY REGARDING THE PRAIRIE VILLAGE X-MAS DISPLAY BAN
Well it appears the Prairie Village POLICE department is going to decide who gets to do what for the Christmas holidays. As I read the ordinance if the Police Chief or any officer hates Christmas you are in deep trouble. Yes it appears that Christmas is canceled in Prairie Village because the ordinance is so vague in so many areas of what a resident can’t and can do anymore. As well, what they can charge you is very vague so hope you have deep pockets because it could be costly. In short it appears the ordinance was written in such a matter that it is going to be such an ordeal to do people will just not do so. So many will just not do anything I am guessing and even if you think it isn't too much as I said if the police department has it in for you they will shut you down. Oh you can appeal it and they have it set up so that by the time you may get an appeal the holidays and your holiday cheer will be gone.
But wait it gets better. This ordinance that is supposed to be about the protection of the people and property as they would want you to believe includes Halloween as well. In fact is in effect all year long so careful out there in your holiday planning of any kind.
Now I guess if you want to do an awesome holiday display and show it for no more than 5 days you can knock yourself out and do that with no issues.
So it appears the city police department maybe is more behind this ordinance than anyone else. So next time you see Chief Jordon be sure and thank him for taking a good part of your holiday cheer away. Some displays have become a holiday tradition that has been in some families for over forty years just might not be around anymore.
It appears a few residents of Prairie Village are upset with the new ordinance but I am willing to bet in the end they will not unite and do anything about it. That’s the problem now days our government just keeps taking away our rights and abilities to do things and everybody just sits around and does nothing.
So I ask are the people of Prairie Village this time going to let Christmas be dictated as to how it will be celebrated by them by the leaders of Prairie Village?
The ball is in your court my friends.
