Mayor Hamilton should resign before he wastes more of the cities money. 800k to plant trees in what the urban forester said is an unjust way. (Environmental justice isn't justice) Over 1000 people said they don't want to be part of Bloomington, and after living here two years I can see why, but mayor Hamilton thinks he knows best and has already filed a lawsuit against the state. I can't find the quote so I'll paraphrase "people are asking what's best for them when they question is really what's best for everyone." That is a truly disgusting thing for any politician to say. Mayor Hamilton doesn't know what's best for me, or my family, and he never will, so don't try to speak for us or tell us what we should be asking. Take the money from the lawsuit, the trees, his own undeserved salary that's 5 times the state average and use that money for infrastructure instead of selling bonds and raising taxes. Instead of 400k to hang skyline obscuring triangles from the new 4th street parking garage, you could have hired actual police officers. Quit giving the university sweetheart deals on property and WATER! Why do I pay so much more than the university for water? They get 9 figure gifts, while I struggle to make 5 figures. Quit wasting our money. Quit trying to exert your power over people. Just quit.

Potholes, Other Street Repair

Case Date:
4/24/2022

On Friday April 15th, 2022 around 7:35am I was driving through the intersection of W Second Street and S Adams Street in which there was a city water access hole without the lid resulting in a popped/flat tire on my front passenger side. I was wondering if the city could reimburse me for my auto repair bill considering the cause of my flat was a city water access hole where no lid was present.

Blocked Sidewalk

Case Date:
5/5/2022

The side walk along High Street, just south of Woodstock Place, has been partially blocked with the asphalt that was used to temporarily fill pot holes. As the water pushed out the asphalt, it has moved onto the sidewalk, making walking along busy High Street more dangerous.

I hope I am reporting this to the same place that I did earlier (see below) The City of Bloomington website is a bit Byzantine in nature I live at 1300 East Maxwell Lane on the SE corner of E. Maxwell Lane and Highland Avenue. Several weeks ago I contacted you about a hole in the pavement that runs in front of out house. It is situated in an offset parking area that looks to be on the easement along the front of our house. The hole is about 8 inches across and several inches deep. Below the surface of the pavement you can see the top of a pipe which extends north towards an open drainage area at the intersection of East Maxwell Lane and Highland. It would seem to continue to the south down Highland. You can see the edge of the pipe, which is open, where the hole in the pavement has formed and it looks as though water must have been draining out at this point causing the surrounding material around it to erode which allowed the pavement above it to collapse. Several days after I contacted you someone from the city did come out and look at it but said that he was not sure as to whether it was the city’s responsibility to correct the problem or ours as the homeowners. He said he would need to research the situation to see exactly what might be involved in the problem and who should take care of the repair. However we have not heard anything from the city concerning this and we would like to have it corrected before winter sets in with more rain and snow runoff creating more of a problem, which I feel sure will ultimately affect not only our lot but also the street adjacent to it. A few days after that person was here I did see a city car pulled up alongside Maxwell Lane for a few minutes but no one got out or came to the door to inquire but it could have been someone else from the city coming to assess the situation. They may have been thinking that the problem was on that side of the house since we do have a Maxwell Lane address but the house faces Highland and the problem is on that side. I don’t know, this is just a guess. Could someone there please check to see what is happening with this problem?

Drainage or Runoff

Case Date:
10/15/2015

I CAN'T GET THE LOCATION DESIGNATION TO INDICATE MY POSITION.. However I am on the corner of East Maxwell Lane and South Highland Avenue. My address is 1300 E. Maxwell Lane. A couple of days ago I noticed a hole about 8 or 10 inches across had opened up in what appears to be the easement in front of my house. It is about 8 inches deep and in the middle of the hole is the end of a metal pipe. You can just see the top portion of the pipe. It looks as though this pipe is in line with an open underground intersection of piping at Maxwell and Highland which which collects rainwater and runs south on Highland. . I don't know whether with rainfall there is water coming out of the pipe but there does seem to be erosion around the end of the pipe which I think must account for the hole forming. If someone could come look at it and determine what's going on I would be most appreciative.
