E-mail question for city council:

This is an enquiry e-mail via from:
Tabitha Steele <>

I have a question and problem in the city of Louisa about leaves. My parents live in berg sub-division on Kennedy St. and their neighbor blows all their leaves in my parents yard.  The leaves plugs up all the drains. No one in the city seems to know what the laws or oridiancee is. The chief of police says he didn't know of  a law or ordinance, and City  Law code enforceer Cory Longstreth seems can't do anything about it. Can you help?
