According to research, after being provided a tip by an anonymous reader, IPL Chief Code Enforcement Officer John Flood is the inspector who cited Alan and Nancy Morris on Newburg Rd for having weddings on their property.
Flood has also changed his signature on email from Chief Code Enforcement Officer to Executive Administrator. Funny huh?
As you know the Morrises story is one I have been following since January and continue to follow daily. Read my prior posts for background information.
On to the topic at hand. Proof of John Flood's citation notice can be seen here:

Chris Poynter, Mayor Abramson's spokesman, has stated that John Flood does not issue citations etc.
AS YOU CAN SEE this is not the case.
So this begs the question for the Morrises, and anyone who has received a citation from Code Enforcement's John Flood, one I stated previously.
Is there a legal challenge for these folks based on an illegal citation?
I am no lawyer but it would appear that most definitely in the Morrises case, since John Flood acted as an illegal "special officer," that their problems started with his illegal citation and therefore they should be entitled to redress from the City for their expenses defending themselves.
Since Jim King is surely aware of this problem what is his motive for continuing the fight?

There will be more on this to come I am sure.
On another note concerning Code Enforcement it has been told to me by an anonymous reader that Bill Schreck, the man who runs Code Enforcement, retired officially sometime ago and Mayor Abramson rehired him.
This, if proven true, would mean that Bill Schreck is "double dipping." While this may be a common practice for State employees, and one I disagree with totally, it is NOT acceptable for Metro government. This is an issue I am investigating today.
Additionally, the State lists Bill Schreck as the ABC administrator in the City of Louisville, and on a separate County list the ABC administrator for Jefferson County.
Would this mean quadruple dipping?
Seriously, how many paychecks are we feeding this guy? Not to mention the numerous Schreck's on the payroll. http://datacenter.courier-journal.com/government/salaries/search-results.php?last=schreck
Regardless this would appear to be a major conflict of interest for Mr. Schreck to be ABC administrator and Code Enforcement Director at the same time wouldn't it?
I will research these items and update as I get info.
We need to seriously start questioning our spending and our leadership.
