A woman was cited into court on Bryan Street yesterday for allegedly forcing a child to live in filthy conditions.
Officers were dispatched to an apartment at 309 Bryan just before 2 yesterday afternoon to settle a dispute between a landlord and tenant. The tenant—37-year old Dawn Boganwright of Hopkinsville—had custody of a child and Officer Robert Sibal asked to see inside the residence.
Officer Sibal writes on the citation that the floor was covered in animal waste and urine, trash and cigarette butts. He writes that the smell of ammonia, mold and mildew was so strong that he couldn’t stay inside long enough at one time to take all of the photos he needed.
Neighbors told police they heard the child coughing through the night. The child was removed from Boganwright’s home by social workers and she was cited into court on endangering the welfare of a minor charges.
The boil water advisory that was issued earlier today for Oak Grove residents living on the west end of Walter Garrett Lane near 41-A and in the Mace Lane Area has been cancelled.
A news release from City Hall says the boil advisory will be in effect for Monday instead.
On Monday, residents are urged to boil water for about 3 minutes and let it cool down before its used.
Officials say the water isn’t believed to be contaminated, but the advisory was issued out of caution after a water main had to be repaired near the north end of Mace Lane.
Residents living in the affected areas, are encouraged to contact 270-439-5433 if they have any questions about the boil water advisory.
