Have had several citizens advise me that often damaged, unsightly, hazardous situations around the City tend to be ignored by the City. A number of years ago reacting to the very same problem, the police department as part of its community policing initiative instituted “Action Grams”. These were forms where the officer noting a sign down or destroyed, a code violation, or a hazard would fill out a brief form which would be forwarded automatically to a designated location for action by the appropriate city department.
It was very successful and the City Manager expanded the program to all City Departments. For some reason, this program (as well as others) was abandoned. We need to reinstitute action grams, perhaps updated and made electronic.
