Photos Of Illegally Parked Vehicles on West Elm St. and West Sycamore From June, 2012 to November, 2013

This kind of parking situation degrades our neighborhood from being mentioned in "Money Magazine".

Code Enforcement, The Police Chief, and City Council have allowed 2 vendor business to operate out of the Sycamore Cul-de-sac over a 1.5 year period, starting March, 2012 to November, 2013.  We in the neighborhood talk constantly of the public corruption and $$$$ changing hands to allow this illegal vendor activity for so many years.  One Vendor is "Mr. Rooter.  The other Vendor is "Handyman".




I put in a "verified statement" against Louisville's Police Chief and Louisville's Head of Code Enforcement.  They have to explain why they are allowing the illegal actions from renters in our neighborhood.  I hope some positive changes comes from it.  I also put in a "verified statement" against our mayor and a Ward II representative.  I took them to court and the situation is still continuing.  What is the point of having a court system in our city?
