No trash pick-up/credit on bill
ISSUE: His trash as well as others in his neighborhood was not picked up last week due to sewer construction on Tioga St. He called Utility Billing to ask for a credit because the service was not provided and was told that there was no credit being offered and that he had no recourse in the matter. He wants to know if that’s correct. He wonders how the city can legally take something without returning the service.
ISSUE: This is the fourth time he almost got hit in the middle of the day in the pedestrian cross walk when he was trying to cross Vista in front of Vista Village. He talked to the police but they still haven’t done anything to increase patrols. He is half blind and is a combat vet.
Action Taken: Contacted by phone

She submitted a Public Records Request in writing to find out about the case and was told there is no record of this incident. A copy of the dispatch was requested from Ada County Sheriff’s Department and they said to request Incident #BP10067196.
