My Letter to Baltimore City Government Regarding Reforms at the Environmental Control Board

UPDATE: All of the ECB related documents I have collected are now available here: http://goo.gl/kdGZe

For those of you not local to Baltimore, the Environmental Control Board informally known as “trash court” is an agency of the city government that does administrative hearings on trash, health, safety and related violations. My experience with them about 2 years ago reminded me of Kafka’s Trial more than American democracy. I have been to an administrative hearing once before in NYC, before the NYC’s traffic court and it was a very different experience. Here in Baltimore, they basically rubber stamp the citations, occasionally reducing some.

In any case, below is a letter that I have been working on for quite some time which I recently sent to the city government. You can download it here as a PDF file or read below:
