What A Tangle Web We Weave When We First Practice To Deceive


At the town council meeting, February 17, 2012, the town council voted 5-1 to approve the memorandum submitted by the Public Works Director to post “Weight Restrictions” signs on various streets because of the early thaw. Also on the memorandum, it stated Webster Road and Wing Street were posted year round. 

Now compare the two photos below and tell me if they read the same. The “Weight Restriction” sign is from Webster Road and the “No Thru Trucks” is from Wing Street. To me there is a big difference in these two signs. The one on Wing Street is designed to allow David Pomelow to drive his tractor trailer rigs to and from his residence. This is the manner in which Brooks takes care of his councilors to protect his police budget.

According to the Town Code Enforcement Officer: We do not have a specific definition of business in our ordinance where as there are numerous descriptions for the word business. As for what constitutes having a business in different areas of town, zoning regulates where businesses can take place. There is such a use called "home occupation" where a person can run a small business within the confines of their home and not having any type of advertisement out-side their home.

Now let’s compare the next two photos and see if this is true or a double standard for the Pomelow’s.

Both of these pictures are advertising to the Public, both are on wheels and both have a trailer hitch; so what is the difference? Both are advertising so how can anyone state that the Pomelows are not operating a business from their residence. Once again, a double standard being applied because Lori Pomelow is a town councilor and receiving special treatment in order to protect Brooks budget.
