Neighborhood Update

1) St Joseph’s Terrace Sewer Repair  – Happening Currently 

See Below: A Message sent from our councilman- Ron Bailey

We discovered a 12” sewer collapse and an associated sinkhole on St. Joseph’s Terrace last night. We will be responding today with our emergency contractor to initiate bypass pumping and make the repair. We are working with DGS to get a tree cut down as well before we can start digging. This sewer is a clay tile pipe installed in 1891.

2) To Report Problems with  Illegal Trash or Other Issues in the Neighborhood:

The Department of General Services (DGS) now has an APP that you can down load on your phone.

The APP is called SCF (See Click Fix). This APP allows you to list the issue, photograph it and send it in to DGS in Albany. When the trash is on private property, DGS contacts the owner and gives them 5 days to clean it up. If this is not done, DGS picks the trash up and bills the property owner.
