When Neighbor Complains

A city councilman in Utah , Mark Easton, had a beautiful view of
the east mountains, until a new neighbor purchased the lot below
his house and built a new home.
The new home was 18 inches higher than the ordinances would
allow, so Mark Easton, mad about his lost view, went to the city
to make sure they enforced the lower roof line ordinance. The
new neighbor had to drop the roof line, at great expense.
Recently, Mark Easton called the city, and informed them that
his new neighbor had installed some vents on the side of his
home… Mark didn’t like the look of these vents and asked the
city to investigate.
When they went to Mark’s home to see what the vents looked
like, this is what they found…

So, what did the orignal complaining neighbor see when he look out the window?

The City Council said the vents can stay since there is no ordinances referring to shutter design.
