Fence Requirements

I have a dilemma.

The neighbors in my Town can not get along. Currently our fence ordinance allows fences on the property given the written consent of your neighbors. One woman can not get along with her neighbor. The Town supervisor wants the fence ordinance amended to require a certified survey of the property if the fence is located on the property line.

Are there any communities out there with such an ordinance??

We require the owners to get the neighbors to sign a waiver, but we don't deny permits if the neighbor says they don't want a fence. Makes me wonder why it is in the ordinance at all. We try to encourage CSM submittals, but we also allow owners to substitute a printout of a digital map if they can't find a csm.
