    For background information, please see previous report #94904 Multiple Violations/Issues at apartment complex:

    Most issues were addressed shortly after original report. At this point however, the Resident Parking Sticker program has only worked with residents who already follow the rules. The gang of men who are responsible for most, if not all, of the issues previously reported, have not followed the Resident Parking Sticker program and continue to have multiple vehicles, without a parking permit sticker and non-residents, parked in the front row taking up spots for residents. The apartment management has been informed but refuses to take action! These same men continue to get drunk and hang out in the outdoor common areas getting more and more belligerent as the beers go down. A few nights ago, they parked in the parking lot for well over an hour, occasionally stumbling out of the truck to public, in broad daylight! The apartment management is being discriminatory and violating Renters' Rights laws as well as their own Leasing Agreements by allowing only this group of Hispanic males to continue to blatantly break rules and create an unsafe and undesirable environment.
    More importantly, no one (neither city, nor the apartment office or the management) have done ANYTHING about investigating how many adults are living/staying in this particular apartment (as well as others). There is no doubt that the number of men staying at this one particular unit FAR exceeds appropriate or allowed numbers. Over the weekend there were 4 untagged vehicles parked overnight and all weekend for this one unit, with AT LEAST 5 adult males staying in the apartment. Police are still having to be called on a regular basis, just for this one group of men. When residents call the apartment office, all we get is, "We will look into it", or "We will talk with them"! After over 7 months of this and plenty of opportunity and time to fix and correct these issues, it is long over due!! And considering some of these guys cannot even supply an ID when asked by cops, Immigration/ICE needs to be involved as well! Enough with law-abiding citizens having to put up with non-law abiding whatevers! Come on Haltom City, Richland Hills and Rio Vista Apartments, try having just a small morsel of pride and responsibility. Talking and going through the motions has not worked for over 7 months! This problem should be fixed (like as in EVICTION of the trouble makers) IMMEDIATELY! Not next week or tomorrow, but TODAY!

  • 2900 Block Of Markum Drive & Belknap Haltom City, TX - Haltom City
    The Belknap and Markum drive intersection badly needs repair. Lot of older patients use the T & R Clinic and Nursing home on Markum Drive
  • 6324 Baker Blvd Fort Worth, TX 76118, USA - Haltom City
    All of the lights along the entire back area of the Rio Vista Apartments are out. These lights are posted in the field which is marked as GOVERNMENT PROPERTY. Not sure who is responsible for fixing this, but it is up to the city to ENFORCE and to serve as liaison to other public entities to get things on government property fixed. This is the same area where large groups of male dayworkers hang out getting drunk. It is also where cars, trucks, four wheelers, etc. drive into field to do/buy/exchange drugs and who knows what else. It is pitch black dark back there now and is presenting an even more significant public safety risk!
  • 3146 Ray Dr. West Haltom City, TX - Haltom City
    We have serious curb and street problems on the circle of Ray Dr. West. The street was resurfaced in 1987 and no curbs were redone. At the time it was done in asphalt. It was not installed even with the curb and therefore has pushed the curbs into the yards and destroyed them. The curbs have deteriorated beyond repair and are now very hazordous to walk around or over. My husband tripped on one and broke a rib and the trash collector fell and hurt his back. This no doubt has cost the city money. We have appeared at CC meetings, spoken to the Council and spoke to Mayors White and Lanford all to no avail. And likewise grass is growing up through the destroyed paving. This greatly needs to be addressed before or along with any other street projects.
  • 5312 E. Belknap Haltom City, TX - Haltom City
    there are two dumpsters behind this asian market. except for one or two days a week, they are overflowing with garbage. this is potentially a health hazard as well as an eyesore as it is directly across the street from our city's new animal shelter.
  • 4404 Starlight Drive Haltom City, TX - Haltom City
    The utility/drainage easement is not being maintained by the city. Trash, debris and water are being allowed to collect here creating a health hazard and breeding ground for mosquitos and west nile virus.
    This easement runs along my parent's property and they are a retired couple and should not have to take care of an issue that is the city's responsibility.

  • Dana Drive Haltom City, TX - Haltom City
    We use to have a wonderful walking trail for a short time but now I'm afraid to walk in fear of tripping on the grass that is now taking over the path. The path is in dire need of attention. Do you not furnish weed trimmers for your employee's? I see that City Hall and other other City buildings are being taken care of by a lawn company. Maybe we should get them to take care of all the Parks as well. My question is does the Parks Department have any kind of Supervision. Please help if code can write tickets for high grass to residents maybe code should drive through our Parks.
  • Haltom City TX 76117, USA - Haltom City
    Does your city even have such a thing? I called to find out hours of operation and had to contact the local police switchboard. I was attempting to locate my lost dog and find out when I could view the animals for adoption. I left a message that was never responded to and still have no idea when this location is open. Do you guys have any responsibilities to taxpayers? Any accountability? Don't you're a disgrace on many levels. I'm writing to my city council people asap. Your job is to help the public and find their owners or adopt them out. How do you expect to accomplish that when even the police dept has no idea what your hours of op are?
  • 5804 Diamond Oaks Dr N Fort Worth, TX 76117, USA - Haltom City
    Cars leaving and going to golf at the country club and general through traffic is flying through the neighborhood. Perhaps the golfers are leaving the course after consuming several beers, I don't know but the traffic needs to SLOW DOWN. 30mph is the posted speed limit. Residential streets should really be 25 MPH. Either way, these people are blowing through here at ridiculous speeds.
  • Pot Holes Archived
    5619-5799 W Broadway Ave Haltom City, TX 76117, USA - Haltom City
    Why I am having to report this is beyond me. City employees and police definitely have to slam into these holes daily.

    Service Road:820 @ Haltom Rd Haltom City, TX - Haltom City
    Many people turn right onto Haltom road here.
    The right side of the pavement has fallen away, leaving a drop off next to a deep ditch.
    What is needed is a right turn lane and road repair, before some car ends up in the ditch.
