I'm hoping this is the right place for this comment. I have a complaint about the Taste of Bloomington...if this isn't the right place, please tell me. anyway, the problem stems from the public hand washing stations located by the Port A Jons. I used the restroom, walked over to one of the stations to wash my hands. Soaped my hands up and proceeeded to wash the soap off. There was no water. At none of the stations...I was stuck with soap all over my hands. I had nothing to wipe my hands on except my shirt. which then left an ugly and embarrassing design. I was not happy. And later on, when I bought more food, (a Jankos ribeye sandwich), it tasted like soap. Not pleasant. If you're going to have a hand washing station, either make sure there's an ample supply of water, or use straight hand sanitizer that requires no water.

Last night in the pouring rain we hit a pot hole that was full of water and it flattened our driver side front tire and we will know later today if it damaged our wheel. Our car is only about 3 weeks old. Purchased new at Toyota. What is our recourse on the pothole Pothole located between CVS (South) and Chase Bank (South). What is our recourse on this unrepaired pothole that damaged our tire and possibly our wheel on my new car?

511 E Hickory Stick CT

Water is hazardous! Apparently a young boy drown in one of the ponds in Wylie Farm subdivision, i was told it was this one. I fell in this one myself, there is an extremely slippery plastic sheet that covers the entire bottom of the pond, up to the edge of the water. If the water is high you don't see it, if its low it's exposed on the edges. When it was low i went to the edge to take a picture of the water. I fell in by slipping the instant my foot hit the plastic sheet, all the way up to my shoulders and i fell down 3 more times trying to stand up. I ended up having to get on my hands and knees to crawl out in order to get enough friction on the plastic to move and pull myself up by grabbing handfuls of the grass growing on the shore! A small kid would almost certainly drown there. A very insufficient "fence" made of 3 almost invisible plastic wires had been put around one of the ponds. A much, much better fence needs to be put around all of them, or eventually another kid will drown.

Our next door neighbor (to the west) have a giant pile of garbage and a separate pile of kitty litter in his back yard. Both piles are several feet tall and several feet wide. You can smell the piles around the neighborhood. They are also hazardous since they are right next to an open water drainage ditch. I know that these same people have been reported to the city several times before about the same thing (by the previous owners). What can be done to address this issue?

There is a burst pipe over spot 316 in the 4th St parking garage. Also, when I was parked in this spot yesterday I came out of work at 5:00 to find water pouring onto my windshield from this pipe. Note that this water was not coming from the break in the pipe (shown in the photo above), but from a location directly above where a Prius-sized car's windshield would be.

910 N Madison ST

Case Date:
9/20/2013

Recv'd request to check out the existing water service at 910 N Madison St. Property owner, Chris Sims, explained that the road was raised awhile back and now the meter sets much lower than the current street elevation. He plans to build a new 2-bdrm home soon on this lot and wants the meter raised to meet the elevation of the new home & the street. He requests that CBU evaluate his request and call him back at 812-327-6290 to advise him whether work needs to be completed before he begins to bring in additional fill for the lot. I also mentioned to him that he will need to complete updated new service forms to ensure that the existing service will be sufficient for the new home. While CBU is on-site, please verify the status of the existing service...will it need to be updated/changed out, or is it adequate for the new home going in?

I live on the east side of town and frequently drive through the Hillside Drive roundabout. There is an irrigation system around the roundabout which seems like a terrible waste of money and water by the city. This is particularly true when the sprinklers are working despite the ample rain of the last few months. Also, if you drive through the roundabout around 8pm you will notice that the sprinklers in the north east corner of the roundabout spray out over the traffic lane which is an additional waste of water all to keep a little bit of grass green. I think the city should have landscaped this and all other roundabouts using native and drought tolerant plants and little if any grass so that money and water are not wasted keeping the area green.

Dear City of Bloomington Staff, Thank you for your excellent service! Bloomington is very well-maintained and I feel very much at home here. I am a regular user of the Winslow Woods Park at 2120 S. Highland Ave. Just outside the tennis courts, there is a water fountain. I was wondering, is there a way you could install a hydration station there? They have them at my campus (Indiana University) and they provide clean, filtered water to students. If a hydration station is impractical, could a Brita Hydration System (http://www.britahydrationstation.com/) be an alternative? I drink regularly from the fountain and would very much appreciate a source of clean, filtered water there. Thank you very much, Olivia Lograsso
