I found my way here after seeing the name of Joe Hyer attached to a pretty disturbing suggestion of his was recited in The Olympian. The article is called, "Problem vacant lot stirs Olympia city council" From the article: Councilman Joe Hyer asked, "Why can't we just issue a condemnation ordinance? Buy the property, clean it up and resell it? At this point that seems like the cheapest, simplest thing for the city to do." Am I the only one who thought his idea to seize what I presume to be the only asset of this woman, callous and elitist thinking? She faces maybe $1500 in fines. This guy clearly would abuse power, if allowed. Can any explanation excuse such a mean-spirited suggestion?
