I'm writing regarding the area of South Almont Ave., Cheney St. and Melanie Blvd.
Beyond the fact that there are two vacant houses on this corner, the sidewalks of this neighborhood have become a dumping ground for trash, limbs, chunks of blacktop, mulch and weeds and no one seems to care.
My mother lives on Melanie Blvd. and as I visit her each week I have noticed the mess just getting worse. I recently took matters into my own hands and did some cleanup, but the city needs to help. Please.
Editor's note: City Manager Amy Planck said this was the first complaint received regarding the above mentioned corner. Planck noted the information and said she would pass it along to the police chief. She said the city will take appropriate steps to remedy any problem that may exist.
