  • 500-534 19th St Oakland, CA 94612, USA - San Pablo Gateway
    People continue to park on unpaved surface in a red zone, drive on the sidewalk to access, drive through the park to get out when blocked in. enforcement is not consistent on this, some meter maids do ticket this, most do not and just drive by.
  • 1911 Telegraph Ave Oakland, CA 94612, USA - Downtown
    Vehicle has not moved in two months, has a handicap placard and prevent it from getting parking tickets. The Fox theater had purchased six spaces on the street to accommodate tour buses and we are unable to use the space because the vehicle is always there.

    Today was supposed to be the follow up date for Code Enforcement.
    As predicted on the last report, he is filling the sidewalk with 2 cars, a forklift and more junk. But never mind as you have stated it's his sidewalk easement, so it okay. Issue Closed???
  • 600 Redwood Street (Payless Shoe Source) Vallejo, California - Vallejo
    Garbage with a human living inside. Should have put that cyclone fencing up to the street to keep this out of the parking lot.

    When will the City of Vallejo figure out that there is no incentive to stop illegal dumping - without enforcement. The City must change their disposition of not pursuing or fining violators. At some point we have to be fed up with that attitude. The City will have to put forth some effort with the City Attorney. The theory that it costs less to just have it cleaned by the City Grounds Crew as apposed to the legal costs of finding and fining violators. This policy is not working for the residents of Vallejo, it shouldn't just be law of the jungle out there.

    Even when given photographic evidence with the vehicle, license plate and face of the offender in the process of dumping, nothing will happen, even though they ask you to report it. When I spoke with the city attorney he could not recall one case of illegal dumping coming through the system.

    Check this out regarding illegal dumping in the City's Municipal Code:
    7.44.160 - Rewards.
    Every person giving information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person for a violation of Sections 7.44.080, 7.44.090, 7.44.100, and 7.44.110 is entitled to a reward therefor. The amount of the reward for each such arrest and conviction shall be fifty percent of the amount of the fine paid by the person convicted under this chapter and received by the city. If the reward is payable to two or more persons, it shall be divided equally. The amount of collected fine to be paid under this section shall be paid prior to any distribution of the fine that may be prescribed by any other section with respect to the same fine. (Ord. 1595 N.C. (2d) § 2 (part), 2007.)

    Enforcement is the answer, without it there is no deterrence and therefore it will continue. Being offered free neighborhood garbage bags and saying “that we’re working with several departments to find a solution to this problem”, seems to be falling short. Take a look at any other city and how they handle the problem - which is to follow through with the fines and prosecute the people. I understand the logic of cleaning up these messes promptly, otherwise who would want to buy a home here? Just out of curiosity I’d love to know what the city spends on cleanup of illegal dumping, they tell us how many pounds they haul away daily. What else could we get done with that money?

    You will not see curtailment of dumping in this city until there is enforcement, at least for the most egregious violators. The city’s disposition to just clean up after dumping because it’s less expensive than the legal process of fining them $1000 has to change....

  • Graffiti Acknowledged
    628-640 Mare Island Way Vallejo, CA 94590, USA - Vallejo
    Graffiti on Ballard, graffiti on K rail. You may also see the trash in the background. That has been there for a while and the responsible department/party has yet to be determined and pick it up.

    14 Kentucky Street Vallejo, CA 94590, United States of America - Vallejo
    Repeat offender, parked on the sidewalk again, this vehicle belongs to 16 Kentucky St., yes, 16 Kentucky St. that property that has been an eyesore for years. Stoped by community services which is one block away to ask if somebody could write a ticket, but of course no one there has the authority to write a ticket for a vehicle on the sidewalk, although they have the authority to give tickets for parking in the handicapped space if you were non-handicap. Please try and send somebody from traffic enforcement out today, I would call but there is no answer and no response and no action as I have been told there is not enough resources or officers to enforce this type of violation.
  • 300-400 Capitol Vallejo, California - Vallejo
    Capitol Street between Santa Clara & Sacramento St., nothing but trash and non-operable vehicles. So much has pilled up it's falling down the embankment to the parking lot below. Street is right across from City Hall and gets no attention.
  • Other Acknowledged
    515 Branciforte Street Vallejo, CA 94590, United States of America - Vallejo
    Yellow pages came to this neighborhood and distributed new phone books, by throwing them indiscriminately on the ground in front of vacant lots, garage doors, at the bottom of steps leading to the street. None of these phonebooks look like they made it to anyone's doorstep. Should they be responsible for coming back and picking those up?
