    Non electric vehicles (like this one) are often parked in the only EV spot (other than a handicap space) in the lot. I have reported it repeatedly to the police department and it has almost always been someone working for the department. Since there are no statutes governing parking in an EV parking space, there is nothing the police department can do. The town of Hamden should consider an ordinance to allow police enforcement of posted parking restrictions on EV parking spots. Also, it doesn’t make sense to have one of the only two EV spots restricted to handicap parking. I have never seen a vehicle parked there.

    hen will the panhandlers (2 men and a woman) that work the Mart and S & S parking lots be driven out of town? They take shifts, they arrive by car, they don't want food, cash only. I have been told they are not homeless. What can be done???

    Our new website looks awesome, but I keep finding errors. This time, there is an inconsistency with the links to our departments. Each department listed A-L is appropriately hyperlinked to its corresponding URL; however, this is not the case with departments listed M-Z. Rather, the name of each of those departments is not linked to any URL. Instead, there is a hyperlink on the term "Link to page" under each department's description.

    If this sounds confusing, please go to the following URL's and you will quickly see the difference.

    This one is optimized with hyperlinks on each department's name:

    This one has hyperlinks on the term "Link to page" under each department's description:

    Our town's website is the portal to Hamden for the entire world. Isn't there anyone employed with our town who should be looking at every webpage to ensure they're correctly configured? I feel like I'm doing someone's job, but I'm not being paid for it. If you would like a detailed report about every error on every webpage, please let me know and I can provide assistance, after we discuss remuneration.

    Dear Mayor of Hamden,

    I just sent a fix-it report to the Engineering department and want to make sure that you have a copy of what I sent. Below is what I wrote.

    "I sent a letter (by certified mail) to Mark Austin, Hamden Town Engineer, on May 24, 2018 asking the town to repair the sidewalk on Thornton Street near the corner of Whitney Avenue, as it is in dire and dangerous condition, as you can see from the attached photo. None of the cement pieces are stable and I fear that in its condition, it is inevitable that somebody will fall and possibly suffer serious injury.

    In the letter sent on May 24, 2018, I included a letter signed by several neighbors who are witness to the unsafe condition of the sidewalk and join me in the request for immediate repair in order in order to make it safe.

    You can reach me at 203.288.8100 if you have any questions.

    I thank you in advance.


    John Weinstein, Member of Branford Property Management, Owner of the building located at 1834 - 1842 Whitney Avenue."

    Our new website looks beautiful; however, it looks like some of the pages were neglected. At the URL for our Arts & Culture Department, the following links all go to our homepage:

    Mailing List
    Cultural Directory
    Hamden Art Groups
    Sponsorship Opportunities

    Also, at the bottom of the page, almost nothing is correct. The phone number reads 123-456-7890 and the link to email is linked to a phone number.

    Also, the physical address reads as follows:
    Address Line 1
    Address Line 2

    Also, none of the links to "Spotlights" have been completed. They read as follows and each one directs the user to our homepage:
    Potentially Longer Example Spotlight
    Example Spotlight
    Potentially Longer Example Spotlight
    Example Spotlight

    Also, none of the "Quick Links" have been completed. They read as follows and each one directs the user to our homepage:
    Quick Link
    Longer Quick Link Goes Here
    Quick Link Example
    Longer Quick Link

    All of these issues are IT101. It looks like nobody was tasked with taking care of this webpage. If you need assistance taking care of this webpage and all of the other webpages which remain neglected, please let me know and I can help, after we discuss remuneration.
