    There is a parking lot at around 21st and Rice Road that we use for Car Pooling that looks like it has been bombed especially at the entrance. Can this be fixed?

  • 3111 Se Powell St Topeka 66605, United States - City of Topeka Council District 4
    Illegal vehicles parked on the street blocking the road. One blue expedition with huge camper on the back displays expired tag. Also black pickup with race car and trailer also displays an expired tag from 2015. Both are illegally parked facing the flow of traffic. This is a serious problem. The tenant lives at 3025 Powell he and his wife are meth and heroin users. They have little kids in the house. Can someone please do something this is ridiculous and most importantly very unsafe with the vehicles on the street making it hard to drive. They also have an entire parking lot full of stolen motorcycles.

    Noticed your water tower at 29th & California is now getting long overdue repairs. With the few upgrades I have seen from the ground there has been one thing that has bothered me for some time which the city keeps ignoring. Your lighting issues. Even though it may not be required for the height it is common courtesy in many cities that all municipal water storage tanks be properly lit with FAA approved lighting regardless if the tower is in line of airspace travel in that area of town. This tower for some time has not had a very well lit light if working at all especially recently since they did minor repairs late last year when they added the new tank access on the top of the storage tank. I would hope you are going to invest in a new improved light, a LED/strobe version similar to what the VA hospital went with on the top of their tower a few years ago. No maintenance, no bulbs to change. It's money well spent. I also noticed you had someone raise your lighting on your Montara area water tower a while back to clear over all the obstacles that have been added to that one. Great job. Only issue is you have the same issue on your water tower behind the Soldier Township Fire Department. That light fixture also needs raised and or upgraded. With LED fixtures taking place of the older incandescent bulbs you should probably budget to upgrade all the lighting on your towers over time. As far as the one behind Soldier Township Fire Department you can't see that light working well at night because it's being blocked by all the clutter that's been added. If Forbes Field and the V.A. takes lighting that seriously so should the city. I hope you will seriously look into these issues....

    Another city of Topeka failure to act.
    I reported dumping of tree limbs on both public easement and private property by the city's lowest bid (and lowest quality) street slurry subcontractor. I sent pictures of the sidewalk and handicap sidewalk ramps covered in what may have been asphalt millings. I was put off by the city for 3 months for a reply. The city stated that none of the work performed by the lowest bid lowest quality subcontractor was complete until the city says it is complete. The city has now closed the complaint with no action whatsoever. The multiple piles of limbs are still there looking terrible. The sidewalks were never cleaned. What are we paying our high taxes for?
