What do you think?

At the bottom of the article it says that these are just safety warnings but Perez was told by an Official who "ticketed" him that the problem better be fixed by the time he came back or there would be a fine.
I think there is a time and a place for everything...and this was not the time or place to be even "hinting" at fines for violations like this.
It also pointed out that the stores were closed, so no one could just go to Best Buy or Lowes and get what they needed to fix it, nor were they given a specified amount of time, but that the next time he came by the problems needed to be fixed. A bad move, I think.
I see it was mainly for pools, electrical. But still this is beyond people's control. Give them some time.
I think warnings are okay....pools without a fence are dangerous for small kids...many drown...add downed lines to the pools and it's worse.
Might be they were also just protecting their butts from being sued, I don't know.
Nobody should be fined though until it's possible to do the fixes.
@Chrissy Cross I was thinking of the safety issue with pools but didn't mention it. You are right about that.
In a crisis situation like this, you would think perhaps the city/county, whoever could assist people with providing that orange flexible fencing I have seen at construction etc zones. People may need assistance. And as you mentioned it's also a safety issue for the public.
I think it's appalling and glaringly illustrates the stand I've expressed concerning government run amok.
