JAN, TRASH TALK, LOVE & MONEY FOR TEAM DAVE, PARKING
Parking Enforcement: I’m calling to complain about a parking ticket I got last night at 5:09 p.m. I went to dinner at Lock Stock & Barrell over on 11th and Jefferson. I came out and had a ticket on my car. There was nothing on the meter that gave me any time of when to use and when not to use the meter. Apparently the time has changed from 5:00 to 6:00, but boy there was no need for enforcing people to move their cars from a whole block of meters. Anyway, that’s what I was calling about.
Allied: I just had one of those big garbage cans delivered. They said it was a test project and I think it’s the dumbest thing I ever heard of. It will take me a month to fill that garbage can. Good bye.

Allied: I called the garbage company on Saturday morning because they didn’t pick up the garbage on Friday as usual. He assured me they would pick it up Monday morning and it would be out of here. It’s still sitting there and it’s now 1:30 in the afternoon on Monday. This is the first time it’s happened to me and I don’t know why they didn’t pick it up this time. If you would like to call me, my number is 342-7468. Thank you

Misc: We just got home from a walk and see that it looks like kids have been out doing some damage to mail boxes all over the neighborhood. It looks like it’s happening while they’re on foot due to the direction of the swings to the mail boxes. I don’t know if it happened at night or in the day time. I wonder if the Mayor and the City Council have a solution for this kind of behavior along with graffiti in the Boise neighborhoods. What do you suggest we do? We’re both fed up; what do you suggest we do? Thanks.

Mayor: I just wanted to let you know that I heard you on the radio this morning and I want to say I think you’re doing a great job. There’s no one who can do a perfect job the way things have exploded. I think you’re doing great; God bless you, my prayers are with you my dear. I’ve been around for a long time and I’ve watched you from a little one on up, so I know what’s going on a little bit. Thank you very much.
Mayor: I’m just calling to say I see you’ve got some competition here for the next mayoral election. I for one, and I know that a lot of my friends are very appreciative of the job that you are doing. I don’t think we need a change, and I would like to visit with you sometime about that and how strongly we feel about your leadership. I just want to say job well done and keep up the good work. I’ve got a couple of checks I would like to get to you from my Aunt Dorothy and myself, so hey, keep up the good work and we’ll be talking to you soon hopefully. Bye
Parking: I have a disabled issue with parking concerning the local Shopko Store on Fairview and Milwaukee. If you could, please call me and let me know how to resolve this. Thank you.

PDS: I’m right next to the Talivera Subdivision, file #CAR000045, CSH0500039. I’m very upset with the damage that the developers of this subdivision are doing to my property. I have a huge mound of dirt that they put in here last summer and said it was backfill for the fence and now they’re not doing anything with it. It’s on a section of my grass that I need to mow and I don’t have a backhoe to move the dirt that’s been left here on my property. Two weeks ago I came home and they had smashed my mail box with the arm of either a big backhoe or one of the big things; it wasn’t hit by a car because of the way it was smashed right down the center of it; it looks almost like somebody took a sledgehammer to it. I came home last week from work and they had splattered concrete all over a motor home that I have sitting at the end of my driveway for sale. There was concrete splattered all over it; we were able to get that cleaned off. Now today I came home and they have poured concrete to set some posts, and again they have back hoed huge mounds of dirt right into the motor home, right up to its tires. I will never be able to move this dirt with a shovel and I don’t own a backhoe. I have lodged complaints with Planning & Zoning and I have never heard back from anybody from the city. Finally during one of my complaints they told me one of the things I could do is call the Mayor’s Hotline. I’ve suffered one indignity after another from this development. We spoke in front of City Council in January 2006 to try and get a stub street. We understand that we couldn’t get that. I’m beside myself due to the indignities that I keep suffering from this development. I’ve tried to work with Mitch Armith; he’s misled me on many things; he’s lied to me about many things, and as I’m looking at this long dirt pile down my driveway, if I had to move this thing with a shovel, it could take me a week or better because of these huge mounds of dirt that they’ve just left here, and it’s supposed to be backfill for the fence. I really need somebody to contact me because I don’t even know what to do anymore. Thank you for your time.

Mayor: I am calling to say that I have the greatest, absolute greatest admiration and respect for Mayor Bieter and his work and the work of his staff. I feel that Boise is one city in America that it would be difficult to improve on. Things only go as well as the person at the top, and I think his performance has been stunning. I would be honored to participate on his campaign and to devote time to it. Please contact me at your convenience regarding any assistance you might need. I would like to see Mayor Bieter continue his fine work. Thank you very much.
