Good Day Charon:
Subsequent to our conversation on Saturday at the Town Hall Meeting and a VM I left in the recent 1/2 hour, I am forwarding you the email chain regarding the catch basins we spoke about. As Ms. St. Martin indicates in her email, I have been working on this for the neighborhood for over three years. The problem has become insurmountable since the addition of the Roberts Market/Walgreens construction due to them being built up and the additional water flowing into Dublin and Nelson Streets. Please see listed catch basin below. In addition, I have also attached photographs of the areas effected by these non-functioning catch basins.
Please email me back, or call me directly to let you know that you are in receipt of my request and with follow-up information on whether these have ever been on the "schedule" or when they will.
I thank you for your time. It has been most difficult and exasperating to deal with DPW. I am hoping for better under the new management team.

Mr. Jernigan:

The email exchange below was forwarded for me to you, by Ms. St. Martin, yet I still have not heard back from anyone at Public Works, nor have the issues been addressed. I would like to know when the catch basins will be cleaned. The rain this week caused substantial flooding and was primarily due to the 6 of the 8 basins listed below that have not drained since pre Katrina. I have spent countless hours documenting the flooding and sending emails to the Public Works office...yes, when Mr. Mendoza was there...unfortunately, I received the same response as the one I have gotten from you. Nothing.

Please either email me back or call me directly at (504) 975-8287 to discuss when we can expect some action and resolution from the Public Works Office.

Ms. St Martin:

After yesterdays' rain, I am writing to ask that you have the following catch basins cleaned immediately. I have written to you and Mr. Medoza (I am aware he is no longer with the city offices) about these many times in the past and still have not gotten anything done. The area is flooding EVERY time it rains, no matter how fast or how hard the rain comes down. This is not due to the fact that the pumps can not handle the rain, as there are two drains that work...the ones listed below have NEVER drained and were NEVER cleaned after Katrina. I spend time cleaning the outside areas and have asked Roberts market in assisting me with the ones that surround their property. We will be working on this today.

In my previous emails sent to you in the past several years, I have also attached photos. If you feel these are still necessary to get this issue addressed, please do not hesitate to ask and I will provide them.

Please see the list below: If you have any questions you may reach me back via email at this address or call me directly at (504) 975-8287.
