Dear Editor,

I recently read an article in the Sun regarding enforcement of the city's municipal code. I suggest that rather than handing out citations for first offenses, warning tickets should be issued. The warning should require correction of the problem within a reasonable amount of time.

After that, a fine would be levied. I, also, wonder if the sizes of code violation fines are being set more by the need for money than any reasonable damage done to the city or its citizens. Fines should be reviewed and lowered when they are larger than necessary.

I realize that implementing these suggestions would cut into the city's revenue stream, but it's ethically questionable to depend on people violating the law to generate income.
