Mayor won’t respond to Green Valley issues
I have been trying for eight months now to get Fairfield and Mayor Harry Price to address issues such as graffiti, trash, dead landscaping, broken glass, etc., in Green Valley’s Vintage subdivision, with no success.
Every time you call either Public Works or Code Enforcement, they either don’t get back to you, they get back to you and advise that they thought it was done or tell you that “they forgot.”
I have made five phone calls, sent three emails and attended one meeting over the past eight months and with the exception of graffiti, nothing has been done. (Kudos for graffiti – the last two times I reported it since August it was removed in less than a week).
I contacted Mayor Price as follows:
- July 17, I mailed a seven-page letter to the mayor at his office – no response.
- On Aug. 20, I sent an email to the mayor at the email address listed in the city of Fairfield’s website – no response.
- On Sept. 11, I called the mayor and asked if he had received my letter and my email to him. He said he didn’t recall. He gave me his personal email address and asked me to attach the letter and send it to him and said, “if I didn’t hear from him in four days, call him.” I emailed him the letter that day and he immediately responded back that he received the letter and that he will “follow through.” No response or follow through.
- On Oct. 7, I emailed the mayor again and he emailed me back and said he was out of town dealing with a family issue and that he would contact me when he was back in town “next week,” which would have been Oct. 14.
It is now the middle of November and again, no response.
This is what we passed Proposition P for?
