Texas of course
Found this on another forum and thought yall might enjoy it if yall haven't seen it.

A city councilman in Utah, Mark Easton, had a beautiful view of the East Mountains, until a new neighbor purchased the lot below his house and built a new home. The new home was 18 inches higher than the ordinances would allow, so Mark Easton, mad about his lost view, went to the city to make sure they enforced the lower roof line ordinance. The new neighbor had to drop the roof line, at great expense.

Recently, Mark Easton called the city, and informed them that his new neighbor had installed some vents on the side of his home. Mark didn’t like the look of these vents and asked the city to investigate.

When they went to Mark’s home to see the vent view, this is what they found…




The City Council said the vents can stay since there is no ordinances referring to shutter design.
