Citizen cites violation of the fourth amendment.
Monday night the Franklin Town Board of Aldermen were presented with agenda items regarding minimum housing code and nuisance ordinance violations for properties within the city limits. While the town board was addressing enforcing the ordinances, one Franklin resident was questioning the constitutionality of their existence.
Angela Moore, who has run for town board in the past and has filed to run again this November, signed up during public comment to express her concerns regarding the town's regulations.
"The enforcement of the minimum housing ordinance as it is written is a gross violation of the 4th amendment of the U.S. Constitution," claimed Moore. "Violating the rights of people to be secure in their persons and their homes against unreasonable searches and seizures is personal. If you are violating the rights of even one person you are trampling the freedom of all of us."
