Day 29.  Still there.  I took this pic at 7 a.m. this morning.  The "Handyman" vendor truck is in front of the renter's house with the dumpster with the renter's customers' garbage stored/parked illegally in a residential driveway doing vendor business.  Illegal.  I took a pic of the street sign.  This house is on the corner of W. Elm Street and W. Sycamore Court.  The renter lives in the house with the dumpster in the driveway, his commercial truck parked on W. Elm St. and the "Handyman" vendor truck parked in front of the renter's house on W. Sycamore Court.  The renter took off in his business commercial vendor truck and left his customers' garbage behind for the neighbors to see and to degrade our neighborhood.
I put in a "verified statement" against Bruce and Bill.  They have a lot of explaining to do about this illegal activity that they are doing.  They should be put in jail, in my humble opinion.
I bet the Police Chief has been giving you the wrong address, as he is a chronic liar, as I have proven.
The address is 409 W. Sycamore Court.
Get rid of this illegal business in our residential neighborhood now.
I have "verified statements" ready to turn in tomorrow for a notary to sign for more folks within our City Council who allow publicly corrupt officers to continue illegal businesses in our town.
Berthoud is under going a similar investigation.
Corruption is rampant in CO!!!!!!!

4.  Residential low density R-L. The residential low density R-L district is comprised of typical urban density single-family residential areas.


   7.  Commercial neighborhood C-N. The commercial neighborhood C-N district is comprised of areas to accommodate mixed residential and commercial uses. Uses in this district shall be strictly reviewed to ensure compatibility.


Commercial community C-C. The commercial community C-C is a district comprised of areas to provide for a restricted range of retail sales and services including opportunities for a limited variety of comparative shoppers' goods.


Commercial business C-B. The commercial business C-B is a district comprised of areas to provide for a full range of retail sales and services including opportunities for a complete variety of comparative shoppers' goods.



 Our neighborhood is number 4.  ONLY!!!!

 Our neighborhood is not numbers 7 -9.

The renter's customers' garbage is stored illegally in this illegal commercial vendor dumpster in their rental driveway for weeks now running an illegal vendor business out of a residential neighborhood. 
Here are the dates that Code Enforcement has already removed this commercial vendor dumpster doing illegal vendor business in a residential neighborhood.

May 23 - May 28
June 24 - 27
August 10 - 11
August 31 - September 4


I sent e-mails proving this renter is allowed by Code Enforcement to break our residential laws of not allowing vendor commercial businesses in our neighborhood.  It is immaterial of the size of the commercial dumpsters, trucks, etc. that are used. 

The point is that it is illegal to run commercial vendor businesses out of residential neighborhoods in our City, and City Council and Code Enforcement knows it also.

Code Enforcement had the renter owner of this commercial dumpster move their commercial dumpster these 4 dates above.

Code Enforcement can have this illegal commercial dumpster business stop in a residential neighborhood.

If Code Enforcement did it in the past, they can do it now.

Why is this commercial vehicle being allowed to stay in our neighborhood now? 


I have painted a picture for you with pretty water colors to refresh your memory for our residential codes for no commercial businesses allowed in our neighborhood ever.

I have held up a mirror for you folks to see your illegal, publically corrupt ways.

Do you get it? 

City Council allows Code Enforcement to break our residential laws for favoritism.  It is also against our ethics code for public servants...you folks.


September 17 - October 11
This is how long City Council has allowed Code Enforcement to break our residential laws for favoritism.  It is also against our ethics code for public servants...you folks.
I am sure City Council and Code Enforcement chooses to ignore this district category law.  So utterly shameful and completely disgusting behavior.
Public corruption is rampant in our town, because City Council allows it.
I have any e-mails from you folks forwarded straight to my legal council, because I know they will be uncivil and full of lies.
I don't need e-mails from you folks. 
I just walk to the corner each morning to take a pic. 
If nothing has changed, no e-mail full of evil lies from City Council/Code Enforcement will change the illegal activities this publically corrupt City Council allows.
Here are the pics from today for my proofs.  Updates will come daily until this is cleared up.
The lying Police Chief sent me this e-mail in May, 2012 stating "tagging before removal" of illegally parked/stored commercial vehicles in a residential neighborhood.  The Police Chief had the vehicle removed over and over again for about 1 year.  How corrupt can it get? 
Here is that specific e-mail.
Then our lying Police Chief gives out another City Code (that he makes up; e-mail below) ,and he claims it makes it, so he does not follow the residential parking laws in his lying, corrupt, uncivil e-mails to me. 
I have received more than 1 lying, corrupt, uncivil e-mail from our illustrious Chief of Police for months on end, just like this one. 
Then the Police Chief sent me another lying, corrupt, uncivil e-mail telling me he will look into the matter.

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.
