‘It’s getting worse’: Residents complain about an illegal dump site in Atlanta neighborhood | Getting Results – Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta, Georgia 2021-09-24 20:58:00 –

Atlanta (CBS46)-Dramond Street in Atlanta, just west of the city, has more than just annoying problems.

Jeanie Driscoll complained to the Atlanta City Code Enforcement about illegal dumping across the street, but said it was getting worse after six months.

“It happens. They ignore it. Oh, it disappears. It doesn’t disappear, it’s getting worse,” Driscol said. “Everything is sneaky. Manure is over there. We are thinking positively about it.

Michael Moore is also fed up with trash. He said it attracted mice, cockroaches, and flies. So we contacted the Atlanta Legal Enforcement Department and they sent inspectors to assess the turmoil.

“It used to be very nice and beautiful,” Moore said. “It can smell on the spot when it’s really hot and humid. It’s uncomfortable to sit here because there are mosquitoes and flies in the evening.”

According to tax records, the property is owned by Ashview Holdings of Atlanta. I contacted the company but couldn’t contact the CEO.

Code Enforcement said a notice of the breach was mailed to the property owner in July. However, no action was taken. The city is currently willing to issue a quote and remove debris and debris if the owner does not clean it.

“A lot more. Nobody wants to do anything about it. But this is a historic MLK area and I have a lot of respect for him. It’s rude,” said Driscoll.

Driscoll said Morehouse College owns real estate next to the garbage dump and can’t help solve the problem.

The Office of Public Works sent a statement to CBS46 on the issue, stating that it had taken proactive steps in response to illegal locations in the city. The crew will then remove debris and debris at 9am on Saturday.
