I live in Louisville.
For the past 1.5 years, the Police Chief and
City Council have allowed 2 separate
businesses to operate out of our residential
neighborhood, which is against City Code, as
our neighborhood is classified residential
only. We have commercial and
industrial areas in Louisville from which to
operate commercial/industrial vendor
I have sent "verified
statements" to our Municipal Court pressing
charges against the Police Chief and City
Council for allowing illegal businesses
to operate out of our neighborhood.
Our court system in Louisville still allows
the Police Chief and City Council to
continue to allow these businesses to
operate out of our neighborhood.
We in our neighborhood
suspect bribes. One neighbor told me
that she sees constant Code Enforcement and
other business activity close to her house
in our neighborhood.
Here is a quick comparison
for laws via pictures.
You can see how large the
illegal commercial vendor dumpster is
compared to a compliant residential

except with the following exceptions: I-Industrial."
It even states right

Here is the URL address for
all my legal picture proofs for the past 1.5
years. I have lots and lots of
pictures. This URL addy includes all
the City laws that City Council and the
Police Chief have broken for over 1.5 years
now, too. It also includes e-mail
conversations between myself and the Police
Chief and City Council and their
excuses/lies for not having new residents in
our neighborhood follow our laws. Code
Enforcement will not tell the new residents
the truth about our laws. City Code
tells these vendors how to actually skirt
our City laws.
Even though home
improvements occur in our neighborhood
regularly, our assessment values have gone
down in our neighborhood with this allowing
illegal storage of commercial vehicles and
operations of illegal vendor businesses out
of our residential neighborhood, when City Council and the Police
Chief allow Code Enforcement to not do its
job. Our "Ethics Code" is
supposed to prevent this type of situation,
but our Municipal Court allows it, even when
presented with our legal laws.
We hope you will find the
time to check into this matter, like you did
Thanks for your time.
