Just read New Haven's warning about residents blowing leaves into the street and the fact that they will be given a hefty fine if this occures. The maintenance crews at Saint Raphael's Hospt. are allowed to blow their leaves into the street on Chapel Street and they are picked up by the city' street sweeping crew. As a former employee I've seen it with my own eyes and as a New Haven home owner and resident I resent the special treatment and double standard. I am a tax payer! The hospital is non prophet thus they don't pay taxes. With that reality I am paying for this pick-up! All tax payers in New Haven should have a hard time with this practice and protest.The tree lines strip was planted by the city. Why should it be my labor and expense to dispose of THOSE leaves? If our mayor can find 4 grand in the city budget to buy uniforms for two receptionists maybe SHE can pay for my leaves!

Residents were issued parking permits because of the heavy congestion. However, the signs were supposed to be posted months ago, and still aren't up, rendering the permits useless and residents with an ongoing parking problem.
PLEASE enforce parking ban on Putnam st. There are 4 cars between Howard and 181 Putnam on the odd side of the street. These cars do not belong to residents. Residents are following the parking ban and are all on the even side. When the ban is not enforced, the entire street and Dewitt street do not get plowed. last time it snowed the street was NEVER cleared!

When is the city going to put out that stuff that kills mosquito larva in the catch basins? Usually it's done when they do street sweeping, but it's very evident that it hasn't been done at all this year. You cannot go into your back yard without being eaten alive, and I'm talking about in the middle of the day with the sun beaming down, not dawn or dusk. Me and my neighbors try to keep on top of any standing water but we need the city to do its' part.

This home is run down and unsafe to live in. There's garbage on the front porch accumulating. The lawn is over grown, the side of the house is filled with cars that look like they haven't been driven in years. The inside is cluttered with garbage and is a fire hazard and unsanitary. Rats and or mice have been observed and roach droppings. And there's a foul smell coming from inside. The basement smells of mold and stagnant water.
As you can see from the picture, the sidewalk is in absolute need of replacement. It is unsafe, an eyesore, and an accident waiting to happen. Difficult to tell from the angle of the picture, but it has to be raised 6" off the ground.
