    Could some grass seed be plated in front of the baseball backstop in Hunt Park? Home plate is pretty muddy after a rain now.

    On 1/2/2019 the City of Ann Arbor commented: "thank you for letting us know, we will take care of it soon."

    Five months later the sink hole still needs to be filled. It is marked with a tall orange cone.

    Status of original request: Open

    The sink hole that was originally reported was filled in back in late July 2018. However the sink hole opened up again and needs to be refilled. The new hole appears to be quite deep. It is dangerous. Someone could break a leg.

    The hole is in the NW corner of the park on a line between the tall fur tree near Spring St and the park shelter, closer to Spring St than to Sunset.

    Can't pay property taxes online

    From the web page https://www.a2gov.org/departments/finance-admin-services/assessing/Pages/Pay-Taxes-Online.aspx I click on the button "View Taxes/Make Payment" which tries to take me to the URL https://accessmygov.com/?uid=283, but instead my browser displays this message:

  • 1035 Daniel Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    The light over the drinking fountain (north wall) at the Hunt Park shelter is not working.
  • 314 Spring Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    There is a hole in the middle of the street. It is under an orange construction barrel. The area under the hole appears to be hollow and fairly large. The construction barrel has been there for many weeks. Can this hole be fixed soon?
  • 910 Spring Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    There is an approx. 2 foot deep sink hole in the NW corner of Hunt Park. It is a serious trip and fall hazard. Someone could break a leg. The hole is on a line between the tall fur tree near Spring St and the park shelter, closer to Spring St than to Sunset. There are several other shallow dips throughout Hunt Park including a low spot that often fills with rain wanter in front of the baseball backstop. Could these be filled in if you have a truck with some dirt up to fill in the deeper sink hole?

  • Trash on lawn Acknowledged
    1311 Brooks Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    An old box spring and mattress abandoned partly in the street at the corner of Brooks and Vesper near Sunset. We stopped and pushed them out of the street and on to the lawn. The City should remove them.

    A sign appeared in the last day or two on both the women's and men's restroom doors at the Hunt Park shelter that reads "Due to Recent vandalism the restrooms will be unavailable for use." I'm requesting that the restrooms be fixed and made available for use.

    I don't think all users of Hunt Park should be punished for vandalism by unknown people who may or may not live in the neighborhood. There are drinking fountains in the rest rooms that should be available to kids and adults playing soccer, tennis, or basketball in the park, particularly in the heat of August. In the heat of summer this is a health and safety issue.

    The drinking fountain on the outside of the shelter has been covered over with a black trash bag for several weeks, so there is no drinking water available anywhere at Hunt Park now. Also within the last day or two a sign appeared over the outside drinking fountain that reads "Due To sand blocking the drain the drinker will be unavailable for use." Can't the sand be removed and the drinking fountain be put back into use? Can't a different drain cover that is less likely to allow sand and dirt to block the drain be installed?

    If the vandalism occurs at night, perhaps fixing the two lights on the outside of the shelter could help reduce the problem. The lights haven't been working all season. They have been reported elsewhere on See Click Fix, but no action or a reply has occurred.

    This a follow-up to issue ID: 2461824 from 5/4/2016. The issue was closed on 3/23/2017 and is now archived, so I cannot comment on or reopen it.

    The several picnic tables and park benches in Hunt Park that need some sanding, painting, and a few rotten boards repaired/replaced have not been repaired. A comment when the issue was closed said "this was closed because a work order was made during the winter for the work that you identified. it will be addressed, sorry that was not communicated."

    What is the status of this work? Is it likely to be done this year?

    It would make sense to replace the light switches in both restrooms at the Hunt Park shelter with motion activated switches. The lights would then be off when the restrooms are not in use, would turn on automatically when someone comes in, and we'd save a little energy.
  • 1035 Daniel Street Ann Arbor, Michigan - Ann Arbor
    The drinking fountain on the north side of the Hunt Park shelter is turned off and has a black trash bag covering it. What is going on? It is important for the drinking fountain to be available during the very hot summer days.

    Utility pole on north side of Sunset across from Hunt Park is leaning or bent to the point that I wonder if it is safe. The pole has three large electric transformers at the top and three metal tags. The tags say
    "HY-POLE NPSK 60, DTE 1 50, 812, McBain, MI";
    "DE 1 50 ND 1"; and
    "DE 13 50 ND 1".

    Outside lights on the north and south walls of the Hunt Park shelter do not come on at night. They should, shouldn't they?
