In W-B, Rules Are For The Fools

You know, fools. As in, the electorate, Or, perhaps, the taxpayers. Fools!

A snippet from the city's published rules...

 Sec. 2-107. - Residency.
Required. All persons employed by the City of Wilkes-Barre, and members of boards, authorities and commissions, shall be residents of the city, unless specifically excused by action of city council.
Certificate of residency; liability for city taxes. All city employees and members of boards, authorities and commissions shall be required to sign a certificate of residency, and that said certificate shall declare his or her residence to be within the City of Wilkes-Barre, and the understanding that he or she is, and intends to be, liable for all validly-enacted taxes which are applicable to residents of the City of Wilkes-Barre.
(Ord. No. 19-76, § 8.02, 7-8-76; Ord. No. 

Going forward, I would suggest that the rules be amended rather than willfully ignored.

I'm just saying.
