3615-3699 Sonoma Blvd Vallejo, CA, 94590, USA - VallejoI have been shopping at three brothers furniture for 40 years and came down to buy some furniture on their closing/moving sale and parked in the back on the south side ofr the store. What a disgrace it is to see this in the city of vallejo. There was actually a no trespassing sign within 2ft of the chain link fence that had been cut opened for access. This homeless camp with all the others that i could see where a total mess and not to mention unsightly. How can the city allow this? I wonder if this is why three brothers is moving their store? I heard of this sight and looked it up only to find numerous other complaints regarding this area with various opinions regarding this total disregard for the law and why nothinf is being done about it. Most people are outraged others are sympathetic, for which i dont understand. This is illegal, it is posted, they are trespassing, littering , loitering, illegally camping and absolutely NOTHING is being done. How sad. What a eyesore for people coming into Vallejo. Should not the property owner be held accountable?

869-899 Sereno Drive Vallejo, California - Vallejo
Railroad crossing of Sereno Drive, as far as the eye can see in both directions is a continuous trash pile. Examination of the trash adjacent to and on the sidewalk shows a preponderance of liquor bottles of all sizes. At 11am, a man lying in a sleeping bag against the Kaiser fence was drinking, three men in the adjacent shopping center parking lot were drinking. A couple in bed of pickup next to the adjacent liquor store were drinking from a brown-bagged liquor bottle. I'm wondering what these people and the owners/landlords of this property have done to secure exemption from state laws about public drunkenness, and disorderly behavior.
Having attracted a large, high quality, medical facility to our city, why do we insult it by failing to enforce law and decency right next to its front door? It's hard to believe that someone isn't trying to sabotage Vallejo's revival.

Entire City Vallejo California - Vallejo
According to our City Manager's bi-weekly report, recent Fire Department calls were for:
EMS Calls... 75%
Good Intent (non-malicious) false alarm calls... 11%
(Malicious) False Alarm calls... 4%
Vehicle Accidents... 3%
Service Call (none of the above)... 3%
Non-fire Hazards... 2%
Grass Fire... <1%
Together, emergency fire, non-fire, and rescue activity accounts for less than 10% of all our "fire" department activity, while medical "emergencies" are over 75%.
Yet all of our fire department and equipment are configured for fire fighting operations, so that calls for medical attention (emergency or otherwise, often simply a sick person unable to get to their doctor's office or hospital) are routinely serviced by a fully equipped fire engine and crew, even by (in my neighborhood, at least) a hook-and-ladder truck!.
At the same time our city has contracts with a private contractor for delivery of ambulance and onsite EMS services. Again, in my neighborhood at least, the private ambulance often arrives before or simultaneously with fire service vehicles. Fire personnel stand around watching the EMS personnel service the patient and load them into the ambulance.
I am neither a city services expert, nor a statistician, but I do see that when one of the most expensive city departments is fully equipped and staffed to handle 8-10% of its job responsibilities, while spending 75% or more doing something entirely different, while an entirely different, singularly specialized, profit-making company is paid to do the very same thing, there just may be the possibility of re-structuring to both improve service to the citizen, along with achieving cost savings to the tax payer.

Mare Island Way Vallejo, California - VallejoTents, sleeping bags, carts of possessions, and more unfortunate folks sleeping overnight in Waterfront Park, adjacent to the area cordoned off. Would CSS please ask VPD to patrol at night? This iappears to be the same orange/white tent I reported yesterday. The group of people around it looked bigger. I will call watch commander this afternoon, but it would be helpful if this could be done inter-departmentally too.
