I come from the land of bylaws (Canada); a place where you can call the city to report your neighbor letting his lawn die and get gross and ugly (esp. if you pay condo fees.) I know this becuase my mother actually did it. The city people came out, issued a warning, told them if they didn’t do it within a week they would and send them a bill. The lawn got cut.
Now I’m in the land of filthopolis and every morning I have to wade through garbage flies because my neighbors have left 3 huge bags of trash out front to simmer and cure in this heat. They have been strategically placed between their old, broken washing machine, TV, chest of drawers, and freshly hung laundry.
Is there not someone I can call to MAKE them remove all this crap that not only stinks, but is about 10 feet from my own front door? Does Taipei city gov’t have any sort of bylaw against letting shit pile up? I’ve asked them to get rid of it and they won’t.
