July 10 – 16, 2010
Hillcrest Shopping Center
ISSUE: She is curious about what is going on in the Hillcrest Shopping Center where they have torn down the old Grand Central building and the buildings around the new Hillcrest Library. Nobody has ever done a news story or told the public what is going on, about what they’re building, or what they’re going to do there.
No action taken
Verification Process for Dam Disaster:
ISSUE: He is concerned that the verification process for a problem with the dams above the City of Boise takes too long and by the time verification occurs, the citizens of downtown Boise would already be in great peril. He suggests a web cam on the Lucky Peak dam if not the other dams that monitors it at all times so if the dam did break, someone could instantly review the webcam and verify it. The public could be alerted much faster and have a much smoother evacuation process in the city.
ROUTED TO: ID Parks & Rec. by email
Action Taken: Left msg.; gave him State Parks & Rec. phone #
Moose Run Ct.
ISSUE: She originally thought there was graffiti on a side wall of Ustick Inn located at 8050 W. Ustick Rd. It’s very confusing whether the message is for or against meth and she doubts that it was approved by the Idaho Meth Project.
ROUTED TO: PD
Action Taken: Left msg; gave her graffiti phone #.
Looking for Work
ISSUE: He has been unemployed for two years and is looking for work.
City is Over-spending:
ISSUES: Mayor and Council are over-charging for sewer and garbage to make money. Stop the raises; the elderly on social security did not get them. Cut back on the money and get that $3,800,000 under control. Stop all this excess spending.
ROUTED TO: Mayor & Council
Business Operation in Home
ISSUE: She is calling about a resident at 3000 N. Maywood Ave. in their subdivision who is running a landscaping business from his home. There are trailers out front, people arriving at 6:30 – 7:00 in the morning making all kinds of noise, coming and going off and on during the day.
ROUTED TO: PDS (2nd complaint, no way to contact for more information)
Boise, ID 83704
No More Dog Poop Parks
ISSUE: She doesn’t want any more of our city’s parks used as poop parks for dogs. Parks are for people and kids, not for dogs to poop in.
ROUTED TO: Parks & Rec.
N. 33rd St.
Boise, ID 83703
Violation of Clear Zone Area
ISSUE: The property at 2019 30th St. has a fence that needs to be removed due to violation of the 40 ft. clear zone area. He has talked with Mike Garner in Code Enforcement numerous times, but nothing has ever been done about it.
ROUTED TO: PDS
W. 37th St.
Garden City, ID 83714
Misleading Unattended Vehicle Sign
ISSUE: He unloaded some boxes in front of Southwest Airlines and took them into the terminal. The lady attendant was very rude and gave him a ticket for $100 for leaving an unattended vehicle. The sign is very misleading.
ROUTED TO: Airport
Heavy Equip. Causing Sidewalk Damage
ISSUE: Construction of curbs and sidewalks behind Boise High School directly across from 1010 W. Franklin St. Heavy equipment is cracking the sidewalk, tearing up the curb, and cracking the storm drain structure. The high school or the contractor should fix the problem.
ROUTED TO: Emailed to ACHD per their request
