    I live next door to this house, it took over 3 months for the city to get the owner of this home to do something about the huge tree limb on his roof. Yesterday he had two homeless guys remove it without a permit using a sawzall. This house is owned by a slum lord. He does zero maintenance to get the house up. The condition of the yard and house is appalling. I know there is a lien from the city on the house. Yesterday two homeless guys show up at the house with a sawzall and an extension cord whom he hired to cut off the tree limb. This limb was 24" in diameter. They stood on the ground cut off the limb with the sawzall which dropped off the roof and fell onto my fence and destroyed the fence. Pictures enclosed. Then they leave a note on my door step saying they were sorry. I am 67 years old, I don't have the money to replace a fence that is less then 2 years old because a cheap scape hired homeless people to take down a tree. the fence is a custom build and painted shadow box fence. There is no matching it and the way is was crushed it cannot be repaired. What am I supposed to do. To replace the fence just in that area is a $2000.00 hit. I do not understand how we have to suffer because the city let this guy go for months without doing anything. There are parts of the limb hanging partially off of the tree just waiting to fall on someone or something. Plus parts of the limb all over the roof.

    I have multiple pictures showing the damage.

    This is related to Issue ID: 3936432 which was closed yesterday.

    The owner of this property has built their own handicap wheelchair ramp out of plywood which is extending onto the street and taking over two parking spaces. The parking on this street is very limited and with this ramp in the way we cannot park our vehicle in the street where it belongs. I have moved the ramp several times so I can park in front of my house. There is no reason why this should be allowed this is not a handicap parking space and the person using it does not even have a car. She just does not want to go down to the corner where there are built in ramps. Someone is constantly driving over this ramp. Please do something about this
