i would be highly curious as to who did the measuring and told them it was OK in the first place….. to be told by the authorities that you are supposed to trust and are to abide by their rules, to only then be told by another deputy something different sounds highly questionable!!! and while it’s not permissible to know the name of the person who complained? i have to wonder what their position with the city is or their “relationship” with certain personnel of the city or sheriff’s dept!!!!
maybe a plan of action would be to have it measured by the state police or the state itself.
