The proposed legislation
- Absolves the city of any liability if a
hunting accident occurs – and we believe it will in a city as densely populated
as ours (2000+ people/sq. mile). It does not require hunters to have insurance!
- Says homeowners living next to a
hunting property will be notified. But it does not say how or when. Nor, does
it give you an opportunity to object if you feel your kids or pets are at risk.
- When you sell your home, who will buy
it? How does this legislation impact your property value?
- Councilman Dave Kos begged his
colleagues to exempt areas around schools and day care from any hunting. And he
got voted down!
- None of the sponsors have said how much
it will cost to conduct this hunting program. Solon Oh spent nearly $100,000 last year on
police and other personnel overtime.
Avon Lake says they are broke. So what services will get cut so
deer-hating council people get to kill deer.
And that only begins to explain the serious shortcomings of this legislation!
