To the Editor: People dumping trash in east-side neighborhood

For three years, I have tried to get the dumping stopped in our alley.

Last year, Cindy Smith from Community Services got the logs, couches, etc. hauled off. I get to pick up all the bags and drag them out front.

I called her this year to please come and see what we got during the winter. Haven’t heard back from her.

Last year, I inquired at the Neighborhood Watch meeting about our alderwoman. The consensus was, she’s concerned about her Broadway neighborhood. Jaime [Guerrero] from Code Regulations [Neighborhood Enforcement Specialist] said Karen [Elyea—11th Ward] could get a camera put in. So I placed a call to her. No, of course, I never heard back from her.

So if anyone out there has any suggestions, I will be glad to listen.
