Within 100 yards of my house are 2 drainage ponds. They are full of scum, trash, weeds and clogged drains. Soon they will morph into a breeding ground for millions of mosquitoes and the diseases they transmit. You would think those fools in the building department would be involved, as I am sure the owners have a responsibility toÂ keep these cesspools clean and functional. They are much more interested in making sure aÂ 70 year old man spends his Saturday on his belly stuffing chicken wire under a fence to protect his dog which was put at risk by their ridiculous and outright incorrect enforcement of a lame drainage statute.
My Alderperson responded, at least, even tough it was lame and insulting – prepared by “staff” as they say. The Mayor’s office didn’t even bother to give me a blow-off response. Totally ignored me.
I would guess friends of the City Council / Building Department have some involvement with these drainage pools, as they only hassle the poor and disenfranchised – those without ability to defend themselves. Total bullies.
Oh yeah – these pools stink – just like our city government.
