What do we do to get our streets fixed?

It's been many months since winter and streets still have 6" deep potholes. It's dangerous for bikers and damages cars. I've called 311 for the deep holes I've found within a few blocks of my house with no results. Guess they only care about new speed cameras, red light and street cleaning tickets.

    I suggest getting some neighbors together, taking up a collection, buy some fill @ Home Depot and fill the holes yourselves. Calling in the local news media to get some footage is a good idea too. Sometimes, we need to make some public noise to garner exposure to these simple problems that our taxes are supposed to cover.You could make a block party out of it, and meet your neighbors too!

  • Love that idea, J. Theo!

California ave traffic noise compounded...

The construction next to the trail at appx 1800N has added a few poorly placed pieces of large metal in the road that compound the traffic noise, day and night.

Asking for help to report to 311, as I already have, and get it fixed - we'd like the young ones to sleep this weekend!!

THANK YOU EVERYBLOCK!

Garbage Scavenger

Hi, all - Just looking for some advice about how to deal with a guy who repeatedly goes through our alley dumpster at 3 am. He throws so much trash on the ground that our neighbor was fined by the city, and the noise is bad enough to wake us. We don't want to padlock it because our 6 units share our dumpster and it would be a huge pain to everyone. He does it all the way down the alley. Similar issue? Ideas?

  • Can anybody. Tell me how I could post about my missi NGO black and white shorthair cat. Near Albany and belden

    it is urgent you call animal control as they only keep found pets a few days...
    if cat is not used to being outside he may just be hiding nearby. look in nearby hiding spots with flashlight looking for eye reflection. if he's out a lot, he may come back. put some of his (used) cat litter outside your door or on edge of your property so he can find his sent to find his way back.
