  City bureaucrats recently came thru the apartment complex where I live. Each apartment building has one "permanent" handicap stall, and one or two "temporary" stalls as needed by the tenets. Well, in his/her infinite stupidity, they ordered the removal of all "temporary" stalls, for not meeting "city code". So about fifteen of us, myself included, got shafted by the city. My stall was taken, as explained to me by the apartment manager, because two stalls CAN NOT use the same van accessible ramp. The manager is going to talk to the city on Monday to try and get me an emergency exemption, as I have a pacemaker, and COPD. If that fails, plan B, will be for the manager to talk to the other tenet using the permanent stall (they have a temporary permit, whereas mine is permanent) to surrender it to me (their currently using it, so I won't park there, as I don't want to play musical stalls).
  I'm going to find out who this self-righteous fool is, and have a long talk with his/her superiors.

Amendment 1: Per city code there can be only 2% handicap parking in a given area. The complex has 14 buildings with 1 permanent handicap stall each, and about 500 stalls in the complex. So that equals 10 handicap stalls, with 4 overflow, but requirements are 1 per building. I suspect the city code exempts the permanent stalls. I plan to talk to the ADA in Tampa Monday about the situation.

Amendment 2: I kept forgetting to go to the office, until Tuesday. As I entered, the apartment manager told me that they were tired of the back and forth bickering with city hall, (they agree with me on the permanent stalls being exempt) they reinstalled my handicap parking sign. So right now the apartment management, and complex owners are going to fight next time the self righteous little man comes around, and orders my sign removed.
