ISSUE: The two handicapped spaces in front of city hall are a mess from the snow. They need to be cleaned so those who have to use them don’t end up ankle deep in water/slush when they get out of the car.
Action Taken: Emailed ACHD
COMMENT: Hats off to the people who are cleaning the bike path. They are doing an incredible job, especially the spur from Idaho Camera to the Main Greenbelt. It’s plowed regularly and it’s a lifesaver the year-around bike commuters.
ISSUE: City’s campaign to stop people from giving money to the homeless is insane, just another way to funnel money to religious organizations to keep people from getting the help that they need. This needs to be reconsidered.
President of Taxi Drivers Assoc.
ISSUE: He also has a taxi company. He has picked up people from the airport more than four years. The last two years have been horrible. It started with punishment of 35-45 days that they can’t come to the airport. Yesterday four taxi drivers got parking tickets; it’s an unbelievable price. They charged $65-$70 and the drivers can’t get more than $10-$15 on a run. We are paying the city more than a half-million dollars a year. He would like the Mayor’s help.

ISSUE: He took a taxi cab from the airport and noticed that the fare had increased versus the same fare that he took to the airport. After he called several cab companies he realized he had been ripped off. The company he took was All American Cab Company and he couldn’t find information on them. Can the fare rates be standardized for all cab companies?

ISSUE: Last year her son’s garage, along with several neighbors’ garages, was broken into and several expensive items were stolen. He gave a list of stolen items to the police, and this year he saw his bike on Craig’s List, so he called the police dept. and they said they were too busy doing other things and couldn’t do anything about it. Although the detective said he would try to connect with the thief who had the bike, he was never able to meet with him and it ended up going nowhere. Her son wanted to buy the bike back on Craig’s List but the detective told him he couldn’t.
