  • 807 Maine Street Vallejo California - Vallejo
    RV parked on Maine street. Pop-outs have been opened and generator has been running on and off. NOT ABANDONED. People are living there. (City should make the hook ups at the Solano Fair Grounds available to homeless in this cold weather.)
  • 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%
    Fire.. 2%
    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.

  • 1021 Tuolumne St Vallejo, CA, 94590, USA - Vallejo
    Homeless guy still sleeping on the sidewalk close to the bus stop. Has a solution been found yet?
    We will keep asking until permanent housing is found for this man.
    This is unacceptable.
    Location is Outside Baskin Robbins at Tennessee and Tuolumne.
  • River Park Vallejo, California - Vallejo
    Stocky bald and sometimes violent guy that spreads trash through out the neighborhood from apartment dumpsters has been camping at river park whom also rotates living and trashing on the lots on each side a Farragut at mare Island way. Please site this blighted person whom constantly does illegal dumping etc.. All that is being done is telling him to move and thus here we are again with no progress and wasting our resources with no real solution
  • 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.

  • 3962-4252 Sonoma Boulevard Vallejo, California - Vallejo
    Once again the homeless have taken over this area again and the properety owners are doing nothing about it. Garbage has been on the side of the road for over 2 weeks, i cant believe that the city of Vallejo has not seen this and picked it up! Are the employees only aloud to pick up garbage on our streets when theres a work order telling them too? This has to change! Have a little pride and pick it up when your out driving around! Everywhere you drive in this town theres garbage littering our streets, the city has only a few people picking this up, i realize this, but people passing through see this and think, what a dump of a city, put more people on cleaning up and present a cleaner looking town! The mayor should be ashamed!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • 1200 Florida St Vallejo, CA 94590, USA - Vallejo
    Homeless camp on railroad tracks. This is shameful that the city allows people to live like this.
  • Mare Island Way Vallejo, California - Vallejo
    Tents, 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.
  • 1660 Tennessee St Vallejo, CA - Vallejo
    This man is not only a Biohazard and public nuisance, but he is in severe need of help. He does not belong at bus stops of on the street. He needs to be removed against his will and put in a mental institution. Anyone who has observed his behavior should agree.
