I have never been a really socially active person, but I really wish I could attend this meeting and ask questions about some of the poorly worded changes. But alas, I have a job and the meeting is mid afternoon. Guess I will just have to risk getting fined up to $1000 for using the swing set at the YMCA park or ask if these laws supersede other state laws that they contradict. :facepalm:
