Since the Buckley Backers claim they don't read the Blog I went back through and found the interview that I did with the Mayor who brought along the City Attorney who signed off on this posting in it's entirety as true and correct. Here is the part where Mayor Buckley gets caught not telling the truth. Please defend this Buckley people, come on Keric and Julie it's your job to protect the guy who gave you huge raises and took out a 2 million dollar bond to keep you happy right?
This was copied and pasted from June of last year...
The Clerk Treasurer says there is no compliance person, the City Judge says there isn't one and I can't get the Mayor to respond to my request for copies of the citations this ghost of a person has written. The mayor has not responded to 3 info requests I have sent and refused to meet with myself, chief swartz, and julie l.ockwood, and dan mcmillan
Ever heard of a mayor refusing to meet with the citizen of a city? Remember when Buckley and his son were raising hell in city council meetings because they could not be heard and now the mayor refuses to meet with his citizens.
Rental Codes – what is the % of housing in BG that is rental at this point? (houses not apartment units) 2010 Census is 33%
Enforcement? IF so, when? If not, why? It is under consideration.
Who is the compliance person for BG? Currently the DPW Director. Contact info for people to report issues. The DPW Director issues citations and tags properties. Mayor’s Call Center – 317-803-9111 or you can email at email@example.com
Someone from the positive side of Beech Grove please respond to this and give us some valid reasons why the mayor would say on the record that there is a compliance person, then find out there isn't one, then find out that even if the person was supposed to do it they never wrote a citation.
I know we could really use some around District 1. You would think that the city council person for District 1 would drive around and see stack of pallets as high as that gutters on some houses. a red truck on 12th and churchman that is wrecked and has been parked there for months with nothing done about it. on and on.
The City of Beech Grove Judge Andrew Wells was asked during the City Council Meeting earlier this week, "How many cases were filed in the BG City Court by the Compliance Officer."
Judge Andrew Wells responded, "Zero."
The Mayor interjected and said all of those cases were being handled in Environmental Court. Let’s find out if any Citations are being written at all and if not why isn’t the Compliance Officer writing them.

I am requesting copies of all Compliance Citations issued by the Compliance Officer or any other appointed or acting Compliance person from the time that Mayor Buckley was sworn into office as Mayor.
I had requested this from the City Judge but he stated that the Mayor stated in the last City Council Meeting that all of those Citations were not filed with the City of Beech Grove Court but were filed with the Environmental Court of Marion County.
It is my understanding that the City would need to keep a copy of all such Citations filed so that the person writing the citation would be able to reference them when testifying on behalf of the City of Beech Grove.
I am also requesting a copy of the job description that is on file as of this date 3/6/13 for the Compliance Officer and I would like to be informed as to who this person is currently.
I am requesting that Mayor Buckley please give an explanation as to why the City would not file these cases in Beech Grove Court so that the fines derived from the Citations would be realized by the Taxpayers of Beech Grove instead of the City of Indianapolis.
Here is the response from the Clerk Treasurer...

Sorry I am just getting back with you, I have been extremely busy. In answer to your question the city has no compliance officer. There are no compliance citations that i am aware of. Since taking office I have used Code enforcement or zoning compliance or board of health. If they have filed anything in the courts I am not aware of such filings.
I have numbers for these offices if you want them.Just let me know.
