“There’s a difference between someone making an unintentional mistake and what I think amounts to […] reckless disregard for the laws which is what we appear to have here,” Grifoni said. “Maybe we can […] increase the fines for intentional reckless conduct that are much heftier than where we are at right now while still providing just a sliver of leeway for someone who makes a mistake.” - Read more here: Marco Eagle, 10/30/19

"It just seems un-American that this property that the city owns, you are required to maintain and you are required to replace in full," Grifoni said.
