I spoke to dispatch at the Crescent City Police Dept this morning, and 2 officers came to meet me. We discovered there are what looks like more than one person squatting at the house next door to us. They are defecating in the yard as well as inside in the toilets (no water service is currently on) and on the floors. One of the men I saw coming out of that drive this morning was wearing a dark, hooded sweat shirt with SANTA CRUZ printed in large letters on the front and he walked over to Discount Liquors to drink FREE morning coffee which they provide. Many of the homeless, alcoholic, and drug addicted population of Crescent City start their day at 7 am at the Liquor Store.
I spoke to the City Council at the December 15th meeting about this situation. I included copies of my correspondence to the acting Police Chief to Councilman Richard Enea, because of his hard work to eradicate blight, and to Councilwoman Kathryn Murray, because she apologized to me for the condition of residence, and that I should not have to live next door to such filth and crime in a home we have owned for over 30 years.
When will it end? This situation has been on-going for years. I implore you all, PLEASE help me take back this neighborhood. Let’s organize a Neighborhood Watch.
