The crosswalk signal at 18th Avenue and 4th Street is inoperative on the east side almost all the time. It is a serious public safety hazard in that folks on the west side push the button, see their flasher working but when crossing the street may nearly be run down by oncoming traffic in the east lane because the signal is out, like my wife and I this morning. This has been reported before, and the signal has worked for a day or so, either because of luck or City action, probably the former as I am sure the City would have fixed it, if it observed it not working. Occasionally it still works for a few hours; I think when it is raining, but who knows? If City inspectors find it working, have them check it everyday until it doesn't. As an engineer, I know it is hard to fix something if it is working at the time you are there. Thanks for your assistance.
When the new road surface was installed, the new grade does not allow for drainage from the street. Photo is after a light rain shower. This was previously reported right after the street was finished several weeks ago. Please correct.
I called in a couple weeks ago to report the garbage trucks speeding through the neighborhood, rudeness and garbage being spilled all over the streets. It’s not a once in a while issue. This has been happening since our former regular guy retired this year. We’ve NEVER had issues from him. Yet this new guy trashes our streets and we have gotten tired of cleaning up after him. By the time we clean up the streets again, the trash cans be half full! I’m sending pictures in this time to show it’s clearly not a few pieces of little paper that flew away in the wind. This guy is straight up CARELESS and SLOPPY! There is more in front of my neighbors house also. We would appreciate it if this problem STOPS as it is not our job to have to come and clean up after their carelessness. We keep our streets clean around here and don’t need anyone trashing them who should already be concerned with keeping them clean
Couchtastrophe 2019 Continues! Now TWO MORE COUCHES have magically appeared in the vacant lot at 135 18th Avenue SE (alley side). I reported the first couch several days ago (but there it still sits). Now TWO ADDITIONAL COUCHES have made an appearance. This is NOT a duplicate issue: there are now THREE COUCHES IN THIS LOT. CAN SANITATION PLEASE REMOVE THESE COUCHES BEFORE ANY MORE OF THEM POP UP? And to those who are dumping, why are you doing this?!? You can call the city, and they will come to your house and pick up these items (couches, mattresses, etc) FOR FREE! So why are you dumping it on someone else's property???? You're actually having to do MORE WORK by driving/dragging your nasty sofas and soiled mattresses over to someone else's property...not to mention THAT DUMPING IS ILLEGAL! SO PLEASE STOP IT!
