Koreatown hoarding home: LA City Council pledges to clean towering mess

A home in Koreatown is catching the city and the neighborhood's attention for all the wrong reasons.

FOX 11 was on Harvard Boulevard where piles of trash and debris were stacked on top of each other at the homeowner's driveway.

Neighbors tell FOX 11 the hoarding had been an ongoing issue at the home for about two or three years. The home is occupied by a man and his elderly mother, neighbors tell FOX 11.

On Tuesday, a statement from Los Angeles's 10th District City Council Office revealed that crews will make their way to the home to clean up the area.

Cleaning efforts will kick off Thursday, according to city officials.

Below is a statement released by Karly Katona, Chief of Staff of the 10th District City Council:

"Ever since this location was first brought to our attention in late August, the 10th Council District team has actively engaged the Fire Department, Building and Safety Department, City Attorney's Office, as well as appropriate County agencies and neighbors, in an effort to bring swift resolution to this concerning matter. At the request of our office, the Neighborhood Prosecutor from the City Attorney’s Office is in court today seeking support from the court to address the public health and safety concerns by allowing City crews to clean-up the property in a timely manner."
