Case Date:

I am following up on case number 167563 which was assigned to a Mr. Peden. He said they came by and assessed the problem but they looked at the ditch in the front and the problem is not the front it is the backyard and the water comes from the north property onto my property in the backyard and is so high that sometimes it almost floods my house.

Trash

7045 McCormick Ln, Bloomington, Indiana, 47401

Case Date:
3/2/2019

This house is outside of city limits. Hello, I would like to know I contact about neighbors letting their trash build up. The neighbors are in section 8 housing, but there is no reason to not keep up with burning their trash. This is causing a health hazard to the rest of us. One of my other neighbors just told me he has already talked with them and they don't seem to care. He even stated that he called the police, but the police, said they can't do anything about it because outside of city limits they are allowed to burn trash. But the problem is they are not burning it, "IT IS BEING PILED UP BY THEIR HOUSE" (yellow house on McCormick Lane), this is causing a rodent issues and problems for the rest of us. The same neighbor told me he woke up this morning with two dead mice floating in his dish water...very nasty he said. If you are the right people I should be contacting, please point in the direction of those I should contact. This problem needs to be address, before the rest of us are over-run with rodents and other unwanted critters. I would like to remain anonymous, but if not so be it! Thank you.

Potholes, Other Street Repair

605 N Fairview ST

Case Date:
3/2/2019

The small stub of West 10th Street that runs West from Fairview to another short street called Curve Street and runs for one block is a disgusting muddy mess. If you are not going to maintain this street why don't you dig it up and turn it into green space? During the recent rains the City storm water system was so backed up in this location that the entire area completely filled with water (causing water infiltration into the basement of the house I own at 605 North Fairview. The storm sewers are often blocked and the culvert at the bottom of the park is inadequate to handle the water that runs off Ernest Butler Park. The whole situaiton is a mess and largely caused by City mismanagement. Additionally, the City has repeatedly allowed Mr. Goodman to violate City rules and codes and directives and his mess and non-running cars adds to the mix of this mess--once again a case of City mismanagement. This horrible situation has persisted for years. As the owner of 605 N Fairview I am seriously considering hiring an attorney and taking formal legal action against the City for its inattention to its own rules. If the Goodman property were a rental property that I owned I would be getting a complaint notice every other day. Both Matt Murphy (who owns the commercial property which adjoins my house at 605 N Fairview) and I have invested significant money in keeping our properties nice and generally contributing to the uplift of the Near-Westside. Too bad the City is not helping us! My number is 812-322-2050 and I would be interested in hearing if anyone at the City has viewed the situation on this one block section of West 10th Street.

Water Utility Problems

463 S Bay Hill CT

Case Date:
3/4/2019

I am having an issue with the pipes in my house vibrating for the last two weeks. The issue started on Feb 19 and has persisted since. The issue only happens during the day when the temp seems to be above 35. It happened Friday and Saturday over the weekend, but not on Sunday. I can hear tings in the wall that I never heard in the past. I have checked the water meter in the yard and over a time frame of 2-3 hours during the vibration there is 0.00 gal of water in use, but I have noticed when the pipes are vibrating my neighbors water meter is going up fast even when nobody is home, but when the vibrating is not going on their usage is none. It sounds like it could be air in the pipes or a high water pressure. I have flushed all pipes in my house and then turned the water back on and the issue is not fixed. Called a plumber and they could not figure out the problem.

Unsafe Buildings

4182-4318 N Old in-37, Bloomington, Indiana, 47408

Case Date:
3/6/2019

1723 W Gray St, Bloomington, In 47404 This house has set vacant for almost 20 years, you can smell the mold and rot from a distance. We live very close to this house and see animals climb in and out of the chimney, the inside of this house is completely filled with mold, the floors are totally rotted. It's a major eyesore on our street, and has a major negative impact on our home values. Sometimes people break into it and it harbors questionable characters especially for a building that isn't livable, has no water or plumbing, etc. I'm afraid my kids one day will try to explore it since it's not locked, and they get hurt inside (I've explicitly told them to stay away from this building). Nothing on this property is maintained and since living one house down from this place, we have never once seen anyone come to mow, maintain, clean, etc. this property. We notice a lot of mosquitoes from this property and it worries us with new diseases developing with mosquitoes, this puts our neighborhoods kids and people in general at risk. I would highly recommend this get condemned. It's within City Limits.

Drainage or Runoff

1725 E Hunter AVE

Case Date:
3/13/2019

After the heavy storm a month ago the parking strip (city property) in front of 1725 East Hunter Ave was severely eroded with the gravel/crushed stone swept down the street and the tarmac beginning to crumble. The city installed a storm water sewer in this location a couple of years ago but it doesn't catch the surface drainage from Hunter. The upstream neighbour has heavy round river pebbles in their parking strip which seem to resist erosion. Could something like this be put in the problem area? Or is there some other solution?

Drainage or Runoff

1107 W 6th ST

Case Date:

In the easement at the back of my property there is an old water meter. (I think it is abandoned and that it probably belonged to the house that also abuts the easement. It is full of clear water and this water is flowing out into my backyard and turning it into a swamp. I'm not sure what is going on, where the water is coming from, etc., but the fact that it is clear leads me to think that it is coming from the city's water mains. The lid was off of the meter when I found it. It may not show in the image, but it is full of water and, as you can see, the water is seeping out.
