Every shop in Greenbriar, on Galene Drive, has a number posted near its door; in the J Town Center, however, only about 7 of 17 shops facing the Taylorsville Road parking lot are so posted.

If a homeowner fails to comply within three days after notification, he would then be subject to citation and a possible fine in Police Court. "We pro--ble- i 41 u.
