    Neighbors report corruption in Transportation, Traffic & Parking Dept. They say Parking Enforcement officer is friends with owner of illegal vehicles on First St—which is why problem never gets fixed. Is this not true? >>THEN PROVE IT—and get rid of these vehicles: https://seeclickfix.com/issues/6789012 AND https://seeclickfix.com/issues/6789042 AND https://seeclickfix.com/issues/6789084 ***And I don’t want to hear that “illegal registrations are not dealt with by TT&P Dept”. If that’s so, then act like an actual taxpayer-paid ‘public servant’ and find out who IS responsible for taking care of this problem and pressure THEM to take care of this until the problem is fixed! (I hope the next mayor completely ‘clears the deck’ and hires new staff when he takes office…)

    An oldie but goodie! Green & white BMW with VT marker FRT 486. Registered in VT--despite fact that owner has resided in first floor apt of 80 First St for about 4 years. I reported this almost a year ago: https://seeclickfix.com/issues/5163818-illegal-car-3-first-st-between-greenwich-howard BUT who cares? I'm sure city employees have much more important things to do than collect the revenue THAT PAYS FOR YOUR SALARIES!!!!

    White Chevy van has expired temporary plate 40725D4, expired Aug 20, 2019. Please ticket. NOTE that this is an ongoing problem on this block: multiple illegally-registered-out-of-state vehicles. All belong to 1st floor tenant of 80 First St. WHY can't this be taken care of? This has been going on for YEARS!! On This one block of First St! If the city really doesn't need tax revenue, is there a way for the rest of us to opt out of paying taxes? Please explain how one does so and I'll share this opt-out-of-taxes information will all my neighbors!
  • Street Sweeping Acknowledged

    GREAT JOB! on Second St dead-end. Drivers of both sweepers were great, but driver of No. 113 [the 2nd sweeper] was particularly thorough, going back and forth numerous times to get all the debris in this often-neglected spot. THANKS!!

    tan Mercedes station wagon has temporary marker plate that expired over a month ago. It soon will be replaced by yet another 'temporary' marker plate, as has been done for years now. In the meantime, please ticket this vehicle. >>This is just one of MULTIPLE illegally-registered vehicles on this single block of First St, between Howard & Greenwich Aves. Most (if not all) belong to the first floor tenant of 80 First St. I've been trying to get this taken care of for about a year--with no results.

Apparently it's easier to raise our property taxes rather than collect what's due from these scofflaws.

    White Cadillac with expired temporary marker has been parked on First St for over a year (alternates between the 2 blocks of First St). Owner is not paying New Haven car tax that’s due. Needs to be ticketed and booted—or towed away. Elm City Wrecking on Middletown Ave pays $125 for junked vehicles. That’s $625 the city could get for the 5 illegal vehicles I’ve reported on First Street alone.
    **ALSO can we get an update re the FOUR OTHER illegal vehicles I reported last Friday morning? https://seeclickfix.com/issues/5163803 AND https://seeclickfix.com/issues/5163810 AND https://seeclickfix.com/issues/5163818 AND https://seeclickfix.com/issues/5163823
    “Are you upset with how much car insurance costs? Then park your car at The First Street Illegal Car Zone™ where cars are unregistered, uninsured—and where vehicle-related laws are never enforced! It’s a scofflaw’s paradise!”
