I am writing in response to the letter from Brenda Manion in the May 1 newspaper.
Ms. Manion, you have been misinformed. You can have a basketball goal in your yard — so long as it is not in the street or in a city owned right-of-way. No one in the Code Enforcement Department has asked anyone to remove basketball backstops and attached poles from private property.
I am interested to know who gave this erroneous information to your landlord so that we can be sure they have correct information in the future.
