Stuck Fire Dept. Suburban: When I was riding my bicycle on the Greenbelt yesterday I noticed a four-wheel-drive Suburban with a trailer backed down into the river east of the Stone House. It had Battalion Chief, Fire Department on the side. There were three fellows there running jet skis up and down the river. When they got ready to leave the Suburban was stuck. So trying to get it out they dug big ruts; they actually had the thing kind of sideways up on the Greenbelt south. The front wheels tore up the asphalt; they got out, changed their clothes and left. My complaint is that if a citizen or a kid or I would have done that, we would have been described as hooligans tearing up the country. So I don’t think those guys set a very good example yesterday. I would appreciate a phone call. This happened on Sunday, June 27th at approximately 3:15 p.m. Thank you.
GBAD: I’m calling regarding the Boise Convention and Visitors matter with the Greater Auditorium District. I just want to make sure that the Mayor is looking into this situation because this could have a tremendous negative economic impact on our city if the GBAD plan goes through. There are a lot of businesses, restaurants, retailers, service companies that rely on the dollars that are brought in, in large part by the Boise Convention Visitors Bureau and to risk to lose that to people who don’t know how to market and the city to bring in those events can be very dangerous in the short term to our economy. Frankly the whole plan doesn’t seem to make sense, so I hope the Mayor is looking into this and getting involved. Thanks.

Graffiti: I know this is the hotline and I think it’s for any art work, I guess I would call it; it’s graffiti that’s in a hole in the ground on the adjacent space. I believe it’s owned by Caps. It’s next to our building which is 805 W. Idaho. Lately there’s been quite a bit of action down in the hole doing their thing with graffiti and so forth. The sooner we clean it up the better.
Action Taken: Left Msg.
Move 10 Commandments by Abe: I would like to make a request; I know it’s just my voice amongst thousands here in Idaho, but Abe Lincoln memorial was put there in the Julia Davis Park near the church, why not bring the Ten Commandments from that Catholic Church behind the Capitol over to Abe Lincoln’s statue. Abe Lincoln was a man that followed Ten Commandments, His Word. It would be a good place and a rightful place to bring the Ten Commandments back to where Abe Lincoln is. And also, for anyone who wants to, read Chapter 29 of Proverbs; it’s a daily reading about whether in ignorance of God people run wild. What a wonderful thing it is for a nation to know and keep God’s laws. Thank you and the God Rally that’s going to be happening at the Ann Morrison Park, Mayor Bieter should keep God’s Word flowing in the city and in this state. I’m serious.

$2 waived ticket: I received a post card that says I owe $2 for a ticket that apparently the people at the ticket place say that I really don’t owe it because they waived it, but it should have been waived a long time ago, and yet they won’t send me any proof that it has been waived. Now this is your office and these are your employees and I would like to know how I protect myself because the next thing I know they will be cutting off my registration or send me tax bills or put my house up for auction; I don’t know. But I expect to hear something from you. Again, these are your employees and you’re responsible for them and I expect to hear back. When I asked the person’s name, she just said Dawn of Boise Services, she wouldn’t give her last name. I guess she’s above having to have a last name. Call me, please.

Sewer truck in parking lot: I’ve been noticing that you’ve got a large sewer truck, Boise City, big yellow one with a black tank on it. I don’t know whether this guy is sleeping or just lazy or whatever. He’s been sitting up here in a parking lot for over an hour this morning, up here at Fairview and Five Mile. I don’t know what they’re doing; they’re just sitting there just sleeping or whatever. I don’t think that’s good use of taxpayers’ money, especially now. It would be nice if you got somebody out here connected with work. Thanks.
Action Taken: Contacted
Graffiti: I was calling to report some graffiti; there are several incidents of graffiti that has occurred this last week on Wildwood just south of Ustick. There’s new this morning on the stop sign about a quarter of a mile off of Ustick on Wildwood and there’s some on the railing by the canal right at the intersection, and ?? a couple of sensors this week. The other is down about at Tarash St. and Wildwood on the stop sign, on the wooden fence, and a spot on the road. One of the signs has “OL” in black spray paint. Thank you.
