960 S Sara CT

Case Date:

Report revised from 6/22 Illegal Dumping in Drainage Easement and Common Conservation areas in Gentry South- Course construction sand (over 100 square feet and up to 10" deep) plus tree brush and other mulched woody material, large insect ridden sawed cut logs (including 47" logs), small rock and trash items have been dumped into the drainage easement area behind my house (nearest the back property line). The area that serves to hold flood water is being filled in, invasives are taking hold where the sand is, and the large debris is damaging trees. I know the area was free from this for at least 6 years prior, even during record water flow. The first occurrence was in early April 2020 and happened again the next year during early April 2021. These dumps are sudden. It was free of more sand at the end of March. Then, a week later there was suddenly a large dump of sand again. I was quoted $4,000 to remove the first dump of sand. The first sand dump is not easily seen from Google maps. Additionally, someone has dumped what looks like yard mulch/waste twice in this neighborhood’s Common Area/Conservation Easement. I have some idea regarding how this is happening but will not put this information on a public report.

939 S High ST

Case Date:

Tree limbs and overgrowth are growing into the public utility lines, along High Street. The sidewalk is unsafe, has not been cleaned, is covered in debris, yard waste, and mud. The excessive water drainage from the house, has caused a pothole in the public street (High Street), with a blacktop patch, that is unsafe, and collects water and debris. Not even level with the roadway.

Sidewalk & Curb Complaints

700 S Park AVE

Case Date:

I don’t know if this is the right place to report this, but this seems like it might be a problem. The owner has covered the entire yard and the tree plot with gravel. It looks like they’ve done some additional planting lately, but the gravel is eventually going to stop the water from getting to both their new plants and to the street trees. I don’t think this is OK/legal. It looks like a student rental.

Debris Removal

212-398 N Smith Rd, Bloomington, Indiana, 47408

Case Date:

On Smith Rd. between Morningside Drive and the railroad overpass, there is lots of debris along the road, there were sandbags that were put out around the drains which have since then broken up and laying there probably preventing water from going down the drain. The weeds along the sidewalks on both sides need weedwhipped. It's very unsightly. Thanks.
