A heap of garbage growing at what some are calling the “Ballard Jungle” near the Ballard Locks has spurred one Ballard resident to cry foul.
Terry Pratt called the Mayor’s office twice and the Health Department last week after walking by the pile and seeing at least 20 bags of garbage just off the railroad tracks south off the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks parking area.
“This hill of garbage is not under a Freeway overpass, nor is it in an industrialized area. It is located in the parking lot of Hiram M. Chittenden Locks. A very big tourist attraction, if you didn't know. More importantly it is across the street from my HUD housing. It is a health and safety problem,” Pratt wrote to the City.More ›
