This reminds me of some posts you had awhile back, which were similar...

Cheeses me off....a country village, by Edmonton Alberta, and no one could offer a hand to an 86 yr old man who broke ribs trying to paint his house? Evil.

86-year-old Alberta man sells house to pay village painting bill

William Yarmovich has lived in the Village of Ryley, east of Edmonton, for nearly 20 years. He’s loved all of it except the last couple- he claims he’s been bullied by the village’s administration.

The 86-year-old told Global News he’s been forced to sell his beloved home and move into a friend’s seniors residence after he was saddled with a $4000 bill for painting the exterior of his home, a requirement of the village.

86 y/o William started scraping paint off. Broke two ribs when he fell from ladder

His story begins in the summer of 2015 when Yarmovich says a village bylaw officer told him his home needed painting.


“I started scraping the loose paint and of course I fell off a ladder, broke two ribs and I was incapacitated for two months,” Yarmovich recounted.

While he was on the mend- he says he was issued a ticket by bylaw officers- fining him for “tall grass” on his property.

“They got somebody to cut the grass. Charged $200 for a job that’s worth $25,” he said.

also handed this $180 fee for someone to cut the grass at his house when he had 2 broken ribs from falling trying to paint.

It is bizarre. One hope a good lawyer/advocate group might see the news article and take up his case.
