Waters Edge Landscape Damaged by City Crew

Will DPW officials also try to blame this on the Tuff Turf vendor?
WatersEdgeMr. Kisela,
There is an area at the front of the Waters Edge subdivision where the City has a pump station.  This is an area that is landscaped with St. Augustine grass and is cut and trimmed weekly by the HOA.
Although there is a designated concrete pad right off of the pavement for service vehicles to park on, City trucks are being driven through the sodded area on a regular basis.  The City truck that was out there this morning really tore up the grass.  Take a look at the picture please.  Can this be addressed?
Thanks,
Scott Stiltner

    Could someone please tell me how a Sevice Vehicle with an 8′ boom could possibly service this pump station from the referenced concrete pad? I did a Google earth on the location.Impossible! Perhaps we should pour a concrete access to the station if we don’t want ruts in our landscape.This should have been noticed in the site plan from the get go. The developer cheaply hid the pump station and neglected to provide access. I’m sure the HOA can afford an improvement to keep their residents happy. Maybe they can relocate the unsightly stinking pump station out next to the access pad so the Service Vehicle can reach it. This website is is transforming from a useful Governmental Watchdog Site to a self serving whiners club.

      The location and layout of this pump station was approved by the city’s senior utilities engineer. The driveway is not the only deficiency, It is also located in a swale making it prone to flooding which would cause a considerable sewage spill. Another of his great accomplishments. He needs a raise and some administrative leave.
