Happy April 30th! We hit 100 degrees today!
Estevan Park returned to the Citizens & Neighborhood
As we reported last Thursday, we are so happy that another of our parks has been returned to its intended use for citizens to enjoy! We are hopeful that it will stay clean and safe to use. The wake of the destruction of our Mayor and Council's failed policies is still in-place with the new taxpayer funded, $350,000 playground burnt to the ground. We are confident, since we know that beds and treatment are available from our non profit partners, that those that accepted the help that was offered, were provided that help. Thank you again to all our members who sent the message that the failed policies of our elected officials are enabling human suffering for those stuck in the cycle of addition and crisis.
City/TPD Responsible for Delays Providing Accident Reports
KVOA reported this week that TPD records backlog has caused citizens up to 6 months of delay due to TPD not providing records needed to process citizen accident claims. This is another of the issues our elected officials in the City are not addressing and citizens have to go to the news to expose. City Manager, Mike Ortega admits this is a known problem. It's just like our situation with not enough officers to provide the basic services we pay for and do not get. All we hear is we don't have enough people but they don't provide innovative solutions to address. Response is always to cut services without cutting what we pay. The responsibility rests with our Mayor and Council for continuing to fail us.
