Charleston's Livability Court
The city began a bimonthly "livability court" on Monday to hear cases dealing with such common irritations as barking dogs and trash-strewn yards. Eighty cases are expected each month. "These issues can substantially affect the quality of life in our neighborhoods," Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. said. The court also will consider violations of tourism ordinances, such as companies conducting tours after hours or in unauthorized neighborhoods.
