Special Olympics Kentucky suing over use of collection bins

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Special Olympics Kentucky is suing the city of Louisville to stop an ordinance that would take effect in two weeks.

It clamps down on donation collection bins that some say have gotten out of control.

Many of the bins are not maintained, and have become an eyesore.

The new ordinance limits the number of bins and slaps a $300 annual fee on each one.

The CEO of Special Olympics Kentucky, Trish Mazzoni, says that would cost the organization more than $27,000 a year.

She wants a judge to stop the ordinance from taking effect, and for council to re-work it.

Mazzoni says it should make exceptions for legitimate non-profit organizations, and should require that a significant amount of the money made off bins go to charity.
