It is very sad when going to select a "Category" to post here and our poor little street suffers all the issues but two. There have been a number of posts from a number of people living on this street and nothing has been done to correct ANY of the issues.
I contacted our Alderman via email, phone, and text and have not received so much as a peep. Every single person on this street is sick of the trash, noise, crime (drugs, prostitution, etc), blight, condemned property, that plague our street on a daily basis.
Since my first posting there have been no less than six used condoms in front of our homes (not to mention the piles of drug paraphernalia), on the streets and sidewalks where our children walk and we get out of our cars. I had company over and her son stepped on a used condom and it stuck to his foot and went into their car -- that is unacceptable.
I think a street meeting with some city officials is due.
