Street Snow Removal

2713 E Rock Creek CT

Case Date:
1/22/2019

This is my second year reporting this issue. My family purchased this home on a cul-de-sac 4 years ago. Last year we removed our mailbox and installed a retaining wall because of already existing poor driaining issues in our area and the city keeps piling snow on top of our property and now the wall. I called Sunday evening and the woman I spoke with said, "cul-de-sacs" were tricky and the guys were out there long hours and were working in bad conditions while being exhausted. But she would be sure to give Joe my address and he would look into my complaints." I called Sunday because the had packed up a huge amount once again on our wall and blocked off half of my driveway. I was then told if we could get in and out of our driveway this should not be an issue or an emergency. Understandable but if the job was successfully completed then first time you would not have to come back. I woke up Monday not surprised to see even more snow had been packed up to our ever growing pile. So my issues are where is all this water going? There is no drainage in this area and all this snow will cause hazardous conditions with melting and freezing and having nowhere to go. Why are you bringing all of the snow into our cul-de-sac? Why are you continuously putting snow on a stone wall where someone could get injured after I have now reported it three times? There are a ton of kids in our neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods and kids like to jump in big piles of snow. I will not be held liable because the city of Bloomington will not listen to or work with its residents. Finally when you contact the city of Bloomington instead of working with you why do they always seem to retaliate against you and make the situation worse? This is what happened last year when the plow driver asked me how I suggested he plow with my "plow experience." I have many other picture but this shows the pile today and how large it is and how spread out the city left. If it snows anymore my neighbors might not be able to back out of their driveway. Is this acceptable??

Street Snow Removal

1216 E Skylark CT

Case Date:

Hi--we love the work the city road crews do to plow snow and sand for safe travel. We do have one request for our cul-de-sac, though (Skylark Court, east off of Highland Avenue). We'd appreciate it if the plow drivers could return and plow the large pile of snow covering the lone storm water drain off to the side, so as to uncover the drain. Also, in the future, can they please avoid piling snow that storm water drain. It is the drain for the entire cul-de-sac. In the photo, this location is shown approximately by the red arrow. When snow is piled over this drain, as snow melts from anywhere uphill, or if it rains, the snow pile caps off the drain and the bottom of the cul-de-sac floods. The storm water drain is at the bottom of the cul-de-sac, which is all one slope, so A LOT of water runs to that one drain. One concern we have with the flooding is that several utility hook-ups (electricity, telephone, and cable) are just a foot or two away from the drain. Things have been done this way for years, and we have always taken it upon ourselves to shovel the drain clear, but this year we realized it would be a great idea to ask if the plow drivers could do this instead. Thank you!

We had our landlord come and check out the house and they didnt find any leaks. We’ve been gone all month so there’s no way we could’ve used that much water. What can we do to ensure that we don’t have to pay a huge bill for water we couldn’t have used? Thanks

I contacted James last week since our water was yellow/brown when turned hot. He said to let the water run for a few minutes then put water from each faucet, hot and cold, into 2 clear water jars, from each faucet. The color is still present, but the water is much clearer. What should I do next? My address is 812 West Cherokee Drive, Bloomington IN, 47403

The person that this is addressed to does not live here at 5314 S. Southway Drive. And we keep getting bills for them. Have came to report this in person and also attempted to call your office with no results. Please get this taken care of. If not to stop the annoyance to me, to help this person keep their water on.
