Junction City Reviews

1 review
There is a reason this little town has the nickname "Junky City". There are some streets that are nice, while just around the corner is a house with furniture sitting outside, old junk cars, trash, debris, etc. Even though there are ordinances for these issues, good luck on getting the city officials to do anything about it. Some streets are in serious need of repaving and a street that leads to the city park is very unsafe-steep drop offs that if a car gets over too far, it would bottom out. On several streets in Junction City, there is a drainage issue that leads to a very severe mosquito issue in the summer. I personally would not live in Junction City, KY.
