Open hydrant - need help!

The hydrant on the corner of Campbell and Cortland has been open for six hours. I've called 311 two times to report it. Am I out of options to get the city to respond? Any advice?

  • JeannyB Old Apartment renovator, architect,

    You're wasting your time with 311...if they even bother to answer, the issue will be ignored. Yep, you need to call the Fire Dept. or 911, if you can't turn it off yourself, that's the only way to get results. Same with streetlites...one needs to notify the traffic dept. and follow the links from there...at least you'll get the issues addressed.

  • Or maybe just walk in to the local fire station and ask them to turn it off.

Drive-By 3000 W Cortland

Didn't see this show up, I assume because there's a typo about the address.

    they are still holding the beat meetings as they have been for years, which everyone should attend. they just don't call it CAPS anymore.

  • I'd be up for attending whatever it's called. I know this doesn't just affect others, but clearly, me as well. I am extremely aware and always keeping an eye out. Not just for myself, but everyone in the area - that isn't a gang banger of course!! HA

    Allen has no future...pretty tough to look forward to something that doesn't exist. But point taken....#bloomingdaletrailforall

    That area is a paradise compared to what it used to be. It's better now, and getting better all the time. Not that long ago it was inconceivable to imagine the Bloomingdale Trail. Those tracks were a common spot for gang members to shoot at police and rival gang members....

    That area is a paradise compared to what it used to be. It's better now, and getting better all the time. Not that long ago it was inconceivable to imagine the Bloomingdale Trail. Those tracks were a common spot for gang members to shoot at police and rival gang members. It was difficult to patrol because police cars couldn't get through the brush and navigate the rail road tracks. Whenever there was a shooting, the CPD had to get up there on foot,many blocks away. and work their way to the scene from opposite directions.
