Neighbor parks business truck with business plates on our block

Neighbor parks his business truck plate truck on the block backing really close to the person behind him as to conceal the plate. He will do it to anyone of the neighbors. Butt usually his wifes car.
This also makes it difficult for neighbors to pull out when someone has parked behind them. What can we do to stop this?

  • He should put puck locks on his van then. Most of us know what he's up to....

  • Andy x

    The problem with them tying up resident's parking spaces is there aren't enough now. It should be parked at the business. or off the street. We all work too. Some of these guys park on the very end. Pulling out of an alley can mean taking your life in your hands if you can't see. I've almost pulled out in front of a speeding car more than once because of one guy. work trucks usually take up more space too. There are a lot of reasons to restrict them.

How do you think a Doggie Daycare business would do in the area ?

Really excited about starting a doggy daycare business but havent been able to figure out the perfect location. Any feedback?

    I take my dog to Found twice a week. It would be great to have something closer. What I like about Found is they don't just let all the dogs loose in a big play group. They evaluate each dog and match them with the best suited playmates. In the beginning, my dog was leashed and in a small group with dogs that had good non-reactive temperaments. Now he does one-on-one play dates with female dogs only, most of the time. I can't find another place that does this. I have 3 or 4 friends that also have dogs that wouldn't do well in traditional large format daycares, and they all go to Found and their dogs thrive there. They charge $30/day and I have to block out our days a month in advance. Definitely a need for daycare for those of us "difficult" dogs.

Terrible Experience with Colletta Construction

Where to begin? Unprofessionalism via bad communication, disorganization & false promises. Inadequacy by negligence. Ineptitude by poor craftsmanship.

- Less-than-half of the work was “completed” in 2.5 weeks when “3 to 4 days of work” was what we were initially told

Where to begin? Unprofessionalism via bad communication, disorganization & false promises. Inadequacy by negligence. Ineptitude by poor craftsmanship.

- Paid him 50% down and an extra $1,000 and received less than half of the work complete (plenty of which needs to be repaired as the quality was extremely poor)
- Less-than-half of the work was “completed” in 2.5 weeks when “3 to 4 days of work” was what we were initially told
- Many promised work days that resulted in “no-shows” with no explanation given
- Damage done at site
- Discord amongst employees and “he said/she said” back channel communication
- Bad communication including: raising voice to customer, not answering calls or texts, not reaching out when absent from scheduled work day, full voicemail box)
- Ignored addressed inconsistencies/concerns with the work-to-date

I wouldn’t recommend this “company” to anyone and would, in fact, highly advise anyone looking for work done to NOT go with them.

  • Fisch Web Developer / Musician

    Good call, DarkAngel. I had used Chase QuickPay and immediately tried to redact it but was unable to. I'm glad that you can at least see the experience we had with Colletta and make your decision based off of that.

  • File a complaint with small claims court. You can get three times your costs, court cost and fees and maybe more! Cost about $80 to file. Take your complaint up to the law library and write up a solid complaint.
