Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.
It is with deepest concern that this complaint is forwarded
to you. A person can suffer just so much bureaucratic oppression
before something has to be done.
I am attaching a copy of a letter recieved by us around the
first of the year. This is based on an ordinance adopted by the
aldermanic board and approved by you on December 16 and December
This particular amended section of the code is not practical
to perform or to enforce, this seems to be entirely harassment
of the citizens of this city who use gas, and for any plumber or
person involved in connecting of appliances. If this section of
the code is retained it will be necessary for us and I am sure,
many other contractors, to discontinue the practice of connecting
heaters, gas dryers or gas ranges. The performance of work
under the conditions ‘of the amendment would be prohibitive
for us and for our customers.
When citizens want their work done we will have to tell them
that the City of Atlanta Government has made it impossible for’
us to perform such work, we will send them a copy of your ordinance
and advise them to take their case to the source of the oppressive
We would appreciate an opportunity to discuss this with you
and to explain the impossible situation that this presents.
very truly ypurs,
