    Ky.Gearheads are Outlawed,Need Help!

    If you care about your livelihood,hobby.or property,Please Read!

    The wonderful state of Ky. is working overtime to get its KRS.381.770
    Section 2. To be enforced in all Ky. Counties. It has been around for a while but now they are pushing it.

    My Son and I ran afoul of this law and got the nasty letter that follows.

    Your property located in Henderson County at------------------is in violation of KRS 381.770,Section2 in that
    it is unlawful for the owner or occupant to permit a public nuisance,which includes accumulation of junked
    or wrecked automobiles,vehicles,machines,or other similar scrap or salvage materials,rubbish,or the excessive growth of weeds or grass.You may present any facts bearing on this violation at the office of
    the County Codes Administrator,Brian Bishop or Assistant Codes Administrator Randy Tasa at (270)-827-6030 or by email at bbishop@hendersonky.us or rtasa@hendersonky.us at any time prior to the expiration of thirty (30) days for receipt of this notification.If you feel there have been errors made in these findings you have the right to appeal the administrative official's decision under Article V,Section 5.01(W) of the Henderson County Zoning Ordinance.....................
    So..
    Some Definitions are needed..Machines..We have a soda pop and a candy machine on the Carport..Bluff City,Ky is 13 miles out and all the folks,esp.
    the younger ones enjoy them being there! For $1.00 you can get a pop and a candy bar or any number of other treats.We have even seen the Police on late night patrol getting pop! Dangerous Nuisance?

    Scrap and salvage materials:3 Barrels with crushed aluminum cans and
    other recyclables! 4 piles near the Garage,but behind privacy fencing,of steel and other parts we use! (Henderson County is obviously going Green,send it all to the landfill ! Recycle Naught!) I did recycle plastic and glass too!

    Rubbish:1Large Compost Pile (4'x4'x3')
    2 piles stacked walnut and cherry lumber,saved from an old barn!
    2 piles split firewood (How I heat the house and shop!)

    Our grass does get a bit tall out back of the house! On our 3 acres my 2
    registered Hafflingers seem to enjoy it that way! They are broke to Harness and with gas prices going up...We won't be walking!

    Old Cars etc. 56 Chevy,53 GMC,75 Torino,75 Olds Cutlass,59 Stude Champ 69 Chevy 1 ton wrecker (used it to clear neighbourhood roads 2 years ago on July 23 no one else could,and many neighbours have used it thank you!) 76 Ford one ton ewb. Mod street 81 Firebird

    My son and I do a lot of backyard creating out of our shop! We were recently commissioned to make two vehicles for the HADI Shriners. One being a car that could have both Halves drivable and the other a trick trike! So we got 5 f.w.d. cars,2 for practice! Saving old classic cars and trucks and hopefully uniting them with a new owner to restore them or at least make good use of the parts is another passion of ours! The Hadi vehicles will be done for $0.00,in fact we won't even claim the deduction for a charitable contribution or even get the cost of parts! After all it is for a good cause and we enjoy a good challenge! The old classics we save we usually just break even and in fact many times have lost a bit. Well worth it though when you see one in a car show! No neighbours complained by the way and all that is done is way in back and barely visible from the road except in Winter,or by air.

    Here is the Ky. Constitution Location site (I don't want to bore you!)
    .........http://www.lrc.ky.gov/Legresou/Constitu/intro.htm..................

    ....My lawyer..http://womacklaw.lawoffice.com/.....Dax Womack.....

    The code enforcers...bbishop@hendersonky.us or rtasa@hendersonky.us

    Henderson County fiscal court judge. Sandy Lee Watkins,e-mail not known

    Our Bank,the account under Property Owners Legal Defense Fund @ Ohio Valley Financial Group.....http://www.ovbank.com/index.html.

    As you can tell I am leaving the field wide open to your own means and
    abilities! Anything any one can do to help from contacting Officials to speak your mind,(keep it legal!) e-mail or otherwise Please do so!It is going to cost $15,000 to fight all this mess on Constitutional grounds.

    I can't win this alone! I don't have the resources to fight a whole dang
    State! Please Contact Me or the Attorney! It seems like a big hill but if
    we all don't pull together we will all fail!

    Thank You,
    Will

    I live in Bardstowm, KY (Nelson Co.) and I got nailed on the same nuisance ordinance crap in March 2003. My nosy neighbor came onto my property with a camera and took photos of a spare tire, some misc. pcs of scrap metal and 2 vehicles without license plates.

    We called the Co. Judge Exec. and told him the non-plates vehicles were for racing, and he said that's o.k. because it was a hobby.

    They gave me 30 days to clean everything up, I had it done in 5.


    That judge executive and his cronnies went to work on that ordinance right after he got re-elected.

    Scum bag politicians want to tell us how, where, and when to live it seems. :x

    Sounds like someone needs a camera shoved up their butt.

    this is a example of people taking good ideas ,and ruining them-
    keeping a area clean, and free of toxins, mosquito's,weeds, rats,and garbage
    isn't the same as making laws- to FINE YOU-/CLEAN IT,AND FINE YOU--OR JUST TAKE IT FROM YOU :evil: :evil: :evil:
    CHEM WAIST -IS NOT A COUPLE JUNK CARS, THAT SOMEONE WOULDN'T SELL! :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
    a old mans cars ,and his memories shouldn't be ruined,because he doesn't cut the grass every week--
    cleaning the place doesn't mean giving 20,000 in fines,or court costs,just to keep there own stuff-

    who's town is next????

    Went through this a couple of years ago with my neighbor.Inspector came out personally.Stated to me new city ordinance cars to not have to be tagged and insured.Just cant be on blocks for long time and as long as car can move 3 ft in either direction on its own im good.Thankfully my cars both cranked and moved while he was there.Finally put neighbor in their place and no futher problems.
