      Chief Lanier, I want to thank you and the members of your team for stopping the illegal dumping business that was operating on Upshur Street NE.  In less than a week you have solved an issue that I have been trying to resolve for many months.  Great job. I am very proud of my city government and of you.

      There are several large trucks full of commercial debris parking daily in the 2100 block of Upshur Street. NE.  They bring smaller trucks, back them up on the wrong side of the street and then transfer the trash, while completely blocking the alley.  The trash sometimes sits there all night and all weekend, rain or shine.  When they do dump during the morning, the process just starts again around 4:30PM.  Clearly it is illegal for this commercial activity to happen on a residential street. One of the trucks also parks within three feet of the alley every night making it a hazard to drive out of the alley into the roadway.
      Is it possible to assist in resolving this environmental nightmare?  We would love to celebrate Mothers Day without the smell or sight of trash.  Calls to 311 have not been helpful.  Thank you in advance for your help.
