|Abandoned boat on 2nd Street SE|
This morning while walking the dog, I saw a bright metallic blue dump truck with a grey emblem (wings perhaps), parked next to the woods near the corner of 4th St SE and Mellon Street. Weird place for a mack truck to be, then I saw that right next to and behind the truck was a new pile of tires and other junk. This latest deposit is only three blocks down, and in full view of the Ward 8 Councilman's house.
A lot of times our East of the River neighborhoods get a bum wrap for the state of our streets, and sometimes it is an internal problem and sometimes it is due to outside forces that are contributing to the blight. Not sure what can be done to combat this problem but action needs to be taken. There has definetly been an uptick in the frequency and types of commercial dumping on 2nd and and 4th Streets SE the past few weeks.
