Watching issues created after: 2015-10-12

I am a public watcher interested in fixing issues as quickly as possible after they arise. I don't "fixes" that do not permanently address the problem, nor do I want the fix to take so long that it creates an issue of its own.

    This property continues to be a nuisance to the neighborhood due to an absentee landlord. The vacant house is now being used by individuals "cleaning" the property overnight. I doubt much cleaning is happening at 12:30 AM when we hear someone banging on the door to be let inside. To our knowledge no one has rented the property, so why are people there overnight?

    What is it going to take for some form of enforcement on speeding issues on Chicamauga Trail!!! Wreck, injury, the news!

    The issue was closed by the city but no information regarding the issue. The speeding is getting ridiculous. What about a speed sign that lights up and takes pictures of license plates and shows speed, traffic patrol, redirection of traffic, more speed bumps, something.

    Residents are running a commercial business from the home. Mulch and debris are constantly piled up. Mulch washes into the street and into the storm sewers.

  • Invisible curbs Acknowledged
    3600 Lakewood Rd Nw Huntsville, AL, 35811, USA - Huntsville
    As you enter the neighborhood on Lakewood Road, off Mastin Lake, just past the island, the curbs on both sides are nearly invisible at night, especially when raining. Several cars have run up into the yards over the last several months. Would it be possible to put some sort of reflectors in this area and possibly the opposite side?
  • 1417-1479 Perimeter Parkway Northwest Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville

    Leaving Perimeter Parkway, there are three lanes. And the middle lane should be a straight or left turn (based on many, many years of this setup).

    Perimeter Parkway recently was repaved and arrows were put down but the arrow for the middle lane (straight or left) was never put back so it can be confusing for people since there's no indication that is allowed.

    Can you put down markings for the middle lane letting drivers know that a left turn or straight movement is allowed at this intersection?

    As shown in the picture, a new light-utility pole has been set as the old pole is broken. However, the repair team then tied a rope to the top of the old pole to hold it or secure it. This appears extremely unsafe due to the high winds we are prone to having and if the old pole breaks completely, it will pu down the new pole as well possibly.
    Your assistance is appreciated.

    The garbage dumpster and the crepe myrtle bushes located at the roadside next to my driveway make it nearly impossible to see oncoming cars before I back into the street.

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been stuck at this red light with no cars coming through the intersection. There’s clearly an error in its programming. Can you take a look, please?
