Wood pile’s smaller but still an eyesore

It’s understandable that Fairview Heights Alderman Scott Greenwald doesn’t want his constituents to see the size that he normally keeps his wood pile in his front yard. Thus, he has brought the pile down to much smaller size over the last month as letters were written about it. Even so, he still keeps it in the middle of his front yard.

A picture of what his wood pile looks like most of each year is worth a thousand words.

If it were in his back yard, where it would be out of sight and would not be an eyesore, it would not lower property values of surrounding homes.
