This should be the year where follow-through occurs. Two weeks ago we were to have two meetings of the defunct by design Ethics Review Board. But when the dates of the meetings arrive -- the board still doesn't meet.
City de-ices Hazelwood house's problem leak - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Pittsburgh's 'redd up' crews Friday shattered a threatening mass of ice that was growing from a vacant Hazelwood home.This is sad. This is a trend. The other house in Hazlewood burned and cause damage to other houses that were NOT empty -- until then.
Fed by a leaky water pipe inside the house on Orinoco Street, the ice threatened to flood Beryl Powers' home next door on Steele Court.
Powers, 69, complained repeatedly about the problem to the city's 311 response line since Jan. 29, but received no satisfaction.
A story published yesterday in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review illustrated Powers' problem and spurred city officials to respond quickly.
Repeated requests of citizens went without action of the city.
