LA City Council promises to clear towering clutter

A home in Koreatown catches the attention of the city and the neighborhood for all the wrong reasons.

FOX 11 was on Harvard Boulevard, where piles of rubbish and rubbish were stacked on top of each other at the homeowner’s driveway.

Neighbors tell FOX 11 that hoarding had been a persistent problem in the home for about two or three years. The home is inhabited by a man and his elderly mother, neighbors tell FOX 11.

On Tuesday, a statement from Los Angeles’ 10th District City Council office revealed that crews will go to the home to clean up the area.

Cleaning work begins Thursday, according to city officials.

Below is a statement issued by Karly Katona, Chief of Staff of the 10th District City Council:

“Ever since this location was first brought to our attention in late August, the 10th District District Team has been actively engaging the fire department, building and security department, the city attorney’s office, as well as relevant county offices and neighbors in an effort to resolve this issue quickly. “At the request of our office, the Neighbor Prosecutor of the City Attorney’s Office is in court today and seeking the support of the court to resolve public health and safety issues by allowing city staff to clean up the property in a timely manner.”
