Since I moved here back in 2010, there was a vacant row house on a relatively nice, quiet block, right near the 103rd precinct and in the downtown Jamaica section, which was being used as dumping ground by people who did not live there (I actually caught two individuals one night dumping garbage and they lived up around Hillside Ave). I filed probably over 50 complaints, contacted the elected officials in that district (Comrie when he was councilman and current Council Member Miller, Assembly Member Scarborough (before his ass went to jail), Queens Borough Hall, DOS, etc. Sure it would get cleaned up, but then in now time, the dumping would continue. Since is was a small row house, the logical solution would be to secure the vacant house with a secured fence to stop the garbage being placed on the property. Well, I guess a light bulb went off in someone’s dim head. And this is a reason, why there must be tougher laws put into place with higher fines and other penalties to force property owners to act immediately.
I know Senator Avella, my senator and this falls into his district, has been intervening on my behalf, so i do not know if this was due to him or not. And really this type of issue should fall on City Council, not a State Senator.
But FIVE YEARS and probably more before I moved here. REALLY, for a simple fix.
Now a fence does not mean it would stop completely, but this is not the dirty true ghetto of South Jamaica, where a notorious vacant lot, which at times literally resembles third world garbage dump, every times they put up a fence or repair it, the native savages cut a hole in it (How about a much more secure type of fence and monitoring this huge vacant lot.
