  • 57 Rock Creek Road New Haven, Connecticut - Amity
    This is the second report: there are two abandoned/unregistered cars in front of 57 and in front of 63 Rock Creek Rd. They are allegedly owned by the tenant at 57 Rock Creek Road. One is a black Honda, the other is a Chevrolet Blazer. Both have been there for months with smashed windows. They are gathering litter and taking up two valuable parking spaces. I reported this a week ago and got a response that the police tagged the cars. So far, no tags have appeared and/or the tags were removed and the vehicles are still there.

    Chamberlain Place New Haven, Connecticut - Annex
    On 5/14/15 I reported deep potholes on Chamberlain PLACE (not Chamberlain Street), near the intersection with Fulton St. The issue was "closed" as having been addressed. However, months later, nothing has been done.

    26-138 Rock Creek Road New Haven, Connecticut - Amity

    My tenants at 65 Rock Creek Road had their trash bins stolen in 2014.
    Around February of 2014 I called Public Works asking for a replacement. After being told that I needed to file a police report, I did so.
    I called the department back, gave the clerk the police report number and was told that a new bin would be delivered within 45 days.

    After three months - nothing. I called again and was told that there was no record of my first call. I repeated the process - still no delivery in 45 days.

    Around August 2014 I called for a third time - still no results.

    Now my tenants are reporting that the trash collection crews are throwing the tenants own trash cans into the truck, leaving them with nothing.

    What now?

  • Ley St New Haven, Connecticut - East Shore

    About two weeks ago I reported a natural gas leak in the street at Ley St, near Townsend in the Morris Cove area to the Southern CT Gas Company. They sent out a technician who indeed confirmed a leak in the main gas line or a lateral gas line in the street. He marked the area, was told by his supervisor that a road crew would repair it and then he left. Nothing was done for a week. I called the Gas Company again on the 15th of June. The dispatcher simply sent out the same technician again. I pointed out to her that that action was redundant and wanted to know when the leak would be fixed. She said that was all she could do.

    Again, the same technician came out and reconfirmed gas was leaking out of cracks in the street. Nothing else has been done.

    This is the kind of thing that caused an explosion in NYC. Natural gas can seep underground and find its way into home basements. Has the Southern CT Gas Company cut back their staff so much that they are unwilling or unable to do safety related repairs?
