LOUISVILLE, KY (WDRB) -- If home is where the heart is, Kris Best's heart is aching. He purchased a vacant property in Louisville's Russell neighborhood hoping to turn it into a rental property.
So far, he's spent more than $1000 cleaning up tires, diapers and other trash that litters his yard and the adjacent alleyway. The city's code says it's his responsibility to clean it up.
Illegal dumping is a perennial problem in many cities. Earlier this year, Louisville enacted a new law aimed at curbing illegal dumping - those caught dumping will face fines and could see their car impounded for a year.
The trouble is -- violators need to be caught in the act.
More than 70 tires, spoiled food, diapers are among the trash left behind Best's yard and alleyway.
"This is just nasty," said Best. "I want to make people aware. I want the city to step up and I want them to start taking action."
Councilman David Tandy, D - District 4, said the city has spent discretionary neighborhood development funds buying cameras.
"So that's why we are taking the step of installing some cameras to catch people in the act that way," said Tandy.
Councilman David Tandy says the effort might be slowed because the cameras cost $3,200 each.
