We have had another incident in our neighborhood.
A young, maybe 20, black man approached a woman working in her garage. He asked if she knew of any work for him. She went into her house to get something to write his name and number down. He followed her into the house and he left with her purse. The police were called and all information taken down. If you saw this person or have any information regarding this incident, please call the police at the non-emergency number, 427-1222.
Please beware when you are approached by people you don't know. If you see someone in your area that just doesn't seem right call the non-emergency number. The police will be happy to check it out if they have time. If it is an emergency call 911.
We have been told that the city will not be picking up leaves again in our area. However, I spoke with Jason Arp, our 4th district rep today. He suggested everyone call 311 and express their concern that we still have so many leaves to be picked up. Our area was first on the schedule this year, when very few leaves had fallen. It may not do any good this year but the city might reconsider their schedule for next year. When the city is considering changes the first place they go is the 311 log of calls. This tells them how many people have complained or commented on a certain situation.
As of right now it will be necessary to bag any remaining leaves and call 311 for pickup. Hopefully next year this will change.
Please share this information with your neighbors.
