*******Despite best efforts and neighborly contacts, trash and yard waste are still being dumped into the drainage ditch west of the even numbered houses on South Hampton Road. This is not acceptable; it is a public health and safety issue in addition to creating a flooding problem.

Metro Code Enforcement has been notified; future violations shall result in official notices and summons. Hopefully, residents will take it up on themselves to stop dumping and put the yard waste and debris in the WEEKLY Rumpke collection. Bellemeade City Government shall stay on the issue until it is solved. Thank you.

******Warm weather is HERE!  Folks are enjoying the fresh air wafting in through the open windows and relaxing on the patio.  Please be considerate of your neighbors and manage your canine friends so their barking won’t disturb your neighbors.
