City of Dearborn Heights
6045 Fenton St, Dearborn Heights, MI 48127
I have been trying to get the street fix in front of my house for three years!!! Had a water main break, city fixed it... A month later the street area that they tore up started to sink!!! Three years later some cars cant even pull into my drive because street is too low and new driveway is splitting apart!!! REPEATED calls to the city / water department is useless!!!
Now I get the news that the new garbage pickup is going to be by "Rizzo"!!!! Yes, the under FBI investigation Rizzo!!! Did our illustrious major and city council even check on the reputation of this company??? Did the phrase "kick back" ever get brought up mr. mayor???
YOU PEOPLE LOST MY VOTE!!!
I have been a resident of Dearborn Heights for the past 32 years. I have watched the city improve and spiral down SEVERAL times. Currently I feel the city is on a downward spiral. I NEVER see cops unless it is at 7-11. The streets looked filthy, codes are not being enforced on EYE SORE HOMES. For instance my neighbors back yard looks like a junk yard, cat size rats!!!! I feel the MAYOR NEEDS TO STEP UP AND GET CONTROL!!! Last winter my side streets were HORRIBLE. Hopefully this year will be better being that I live on an emergency/school route! The trailor park on Pelham and Ziegler is NOTHING BUT TROUBLE and I NEVER see cops patrolling through there, IT'S FULL OF DRUGS, DRUNKS AND TROUBLE! STEP UP MAYOR AND GET CONTROL!!!
With the flood on 08/11/14 we have only 45 days to put in a claim with the city, I put in a request for the form over a week ago and still haven't received it as yet, I have called back to DPW Dept. where you are to call and request. I was told that the Mayors office has sent all forms out and she didn't know what else to tell me..We only have 45 days to put in for the flood claim and now I only have 31 more days left to get the form and send it back in for them to review it....Am I going to have to call the Media about this issue sense Dearborn Heights is not sending out the forms for claims?????
The Dearborn Heights Water department is one of the worst. If you have an emergency after-hours, you listen to the recording and select emergency and it hangs up on you. Also, if you ever need them to come out to your house, you better stand there waiting for about a week and they will show up as they please. The drivers are liars, and the people operating the switchboard are rude, and its astonishing they actually still have a job.
I just moved to Dearborn Heights, MI and I have to say i feel very safe in this city. The police are everywhere, including constant patrolling of the neighborhoods. They will even do a driveby if you request one while you are on vacation. I am impressed with the police force of Dearborn Hts, Thank-you!
