They've been warned, but now Lexington officials are letting people who live in student populated areas know they're serious about curbing wild parities and messy homes.
Code enforcement officers and Lexington police walked through neighborhoods near UK's campus Friday morning.
Officials were following up on complaints over the past months of trashed houses, parking violations, and out of control parties.
city officials focused their inspection on University Avenue, State Street and Waller Avenue. They issued notices for muddy yards, which occurs when vehicles park in the grass; trash; and structural problems. Lexington police wrote tickets for cars parked illegally, including those in yellow zones and those blocking driveways.
Code enforcement director David Jarvis said the situation in those neighborhoods has improved since last year.
He said the crew plans to continue periodic sweeps of the area.
