Being a resident of Mt. Lebanon, I read with great interest Colin McNickle's “Saturday essay: Annoyed in Lebo” (April 27 and TribLIVE.com). While I do agree with his viewpoint that the residential zoning laws in our community are excessively restrictive, I disagree with Mr. McNickle's means of personal protest.

I feel that forcing the township to replace his sidewalk because of its 4-inch mismeasurement is a waste of taxpayers' money (my money). I believe McNickle adequately expressed his dissatisfaction with Mt. Lebanon zoning policy through the “public forum” in the Trib.

His belief that by requiring the township to relocate his sidewalk he is somehow teaching the local government a lesson displays a “tit-for-tat” mentality that serves no one.

Editor's note: The request to move the sidewalk was tongue in cheek.
