            Louisville spends millions of tax payer dollars cleaning up and tearing down abandoned property. But in the last decade, the city has collected little in fines from property owners.
            “Our inspectors are out every day,” Mims, told WDRB-41. “We try to reach the property owners with notices. Sometimes it’s impossible.”
