Re: ROSA Enforcement
- Our experience is similar to Matt's. Joe, I haven't hit DPW with a ROSA
request (yet), but generally they've been pretty responsive on this end
of Newton over the years. Tyler has had a long-standing problem w/ CUA
student parking nuisances, as have others here on Newton. So let me
just add to Matt's post...
When dealing with DPW...
* Keep a log. Be sure to get and note your call center report
date/ time/ Intake person's ID#/ name if allowed
* Be a little pushy (nicely, of course) with relevant questions:
--Who (specific names) is in charge of enforcement/ inspection for W 5?
---Share that info here and on any of your relevant listservs
--What's there direct phone number, fax, email address?
--When, exactly (no later than date) can you expect action to be taken?
--Let them know you're keeping a log of your complaint(s).
* Ask them to call you back to confirm action has been taken.
* Repeat... requesting new complaint no.(s), if necessary... and/or...
* Call and email Ayawna Chase in CM Thomas' office when you've
made reasonable attempts, to no avail
--Provide her a copy of your log details
DPW should know the Thomas family very well-- and that they have a long
history of commitment to DPW-related concerns on behalf of their Ward 5
