Code Enforcement,
This is the longest you have ever let a construction truck and a construction dumpster stay illegally parked and stored in our neighborhood.
Absolutely disgusting.  Utterly disgraceful.  Simply shameful.
But you don't care.  As you don't seem to have one nice bone in your physical body.
You have made it crystal clear that you and only you will decide when and how this illegal activity will be taken care of, even though there are parking residential laws prohibiting this activity in our town.
More proof of $$$ changing hands, the longer you let this situation occur. 
Again, the correct legal action on Code Enforcement's part will prove to neighbors that Code Enforcement can be counted on follow our Code of Ethics, that is obviously ignored by Code Enforcement and the Police Department allowing it to occur, at this point in time.
You need to do your job, if you want folks to respect and trust you again.
I will be sending pics daily, except Sunday.
I meditate and pray that Code Enforcement will do the right thing.

This is from our Ethics Code

"Open Government & Ethics Pamphlet 2013
Other Ethics Rules of Interest 
Page 7

It also prohibits acts of advantage or favoritism and, in that regard, prohibits special considerations, use of employee time for personal or private 
reasons, and use of City vehicles or equipment, except in same manner as available to any other person (or in manner that will substantially benefit City)."

"Last night we heard from the owners of the truck.  It belongs to a couple who recently moved to Louisville and who just purchased the vehicle.  The husband and wife are a little distressed about why the selective enforcement against them.  Commander Kingston will speak with them and convey our assurances that this is all quite routine and innocent. "

This quote is from a May 25, 2012 e-mail to me from Bruce Goodman, Police Chief.  He knows the rules.  He applies them when he wants.  He is a bully.  He does not do his job that he is paid to do.  He should be fired on the spot.  If he did his job correctly, the first time he contacted the owners, he would not be  backed into a corner to save face.  Now, he will not do his job, just to try to prove he is correct, when he is so very wrong.
