Dear Mayor's office, I have two issues I would like to bring to your attention and ask about: First, are you aware of BPD's decision to fly black flags from police patrol cars, and did you approve this? I join members of BPD and the wider community in mourning the loss of life in Dallas this past week, but I also believe that allowing the BPD to choose this type of public display on vehicles that are tax-payer funded, is improper. Can I request that these publicly owned vehicles fly black flags when coal miners are killed on the job, or when police take the life of unarmed citizens? Second, my partner and I were enjoying a swim at Bryan Park pool on Sunday, when we noticed an individual openly carrying a hand gun poolside, and standing very prominently while pacing the area. We immediately left the pool and did not directly confront the individual because of uncertainty over the law. Why is this allowed? My reading of Indiana open carry law is that municipalities are allowed to ban open carry on property they control or administer. Is this not the case? I wish to make clear that we enjoy the pool system and are grateful to the city for providing, and appreciate the work of our police force, as well. We look forward to hearing from you. Keep up the great work. Thanks, Joseph Varga 817 S High St Bloomington 347-415-1574

Good afternoon, My name is Candi and I am the Maintenance Coordinator for a Real Estate Management Company in Bloomington. I have had problems with illegal dumping in several of our apartment complexes. When I call the Bloomington Police Department for illegal dumping, they send me to the HAND Department. When calling HAND, I get the answer of the affidavit that is attached below. On this affidavit, it states the owner of the property must sign, have notarized and returned to HAND with a document from the illegal dumping site that has a valid name and address of the person who is illegally dumping to show proof. Now, we have several owners that live outside the continental USA, along with owners in various states and owners that live in Indiana but are outside of the Monroe County area. If I send this affidavit to the owner to have signed and then notarized and the issue is taken to court and they have to be present for this court date: the owner will be held responsible for false information. Since the owner is out of State, Country or County, they will not be the person who witnesses the event of the illegal dumping. So how is this form going to stop the illegal dumping, if the owner cannot always be present to witness it? As the Management Company, having signed registration forms from the owners and giving to the HAND Department for their files, we should be able to do our jobs and report illegal dumping and it be taken care of. Please Help, Thanks, Candi

Dear Mayor Hamilton, While driving on South Walnut today, I was directly behind a black and white car which obviously had been a police car. It still had the extra side mirrors as equipment and a police decal on the lower left panel. This sighting prompted me to write to you. I would like to inquire what the policy is for the City of Bloomington patrol cars which are auctioned. Are they stripped of any exterior equipment before they are sold? With crimes against the public, particularly women, involving individuals impersonating police officers, I would hope removing any visible signs which might confuse or falsely indicate these cars are police cars is a mandatory procedure taken prior to auction. Thank you for your attention to my concern.

Drainage or Runoff

2316 E Linden Hill DR

Case Date:

Ms Hammond left a voice message on 4/18/16 saying she has problems with storm sewer runoff in her backyard that has gotten much worse this year. She didn't know if the city could help because the storm sewer comes off The Stands Dr with a culvert that ends right in her back yard.
