Resident says city needs to remove cars dumped on Georgetown street
A Georgetown resident is calling on the city to clean up what he says are illegal cars being dumped on a street in the neighborhood.
Damaged, broken down and seemingly neglected cars can be seen scattered in Georgetown.
There are also many cars parked on the street that don’t have license plates, are missing tires or have expired inspection stickers.
Resident Zachary Vered says this has been an ongoing issue in the area for at least 6 months.
Months ago, Vered says he and several other residents spoke out about concerns they had about trash along the road, which eventually was cleaned up.
However, Vered says ever since he reached out to city agencies about the car problem, nothing has been done and no cars have been removed.
News 12 reached out to the Department of Sanitation for a response. It says it takes reports of illegal dumping very seriously.
In a statement, it adds, "We thank residents for reporting these conditions and will issue violations to anyone caught dumping illegally."
