Who's responsible for cleaning up the creek area that runs underneath the road at the corner of West 22nd Street and Hartford Avenue? I noticed there was a refrigerator crate and other trash in there.
According to Megan Gilliland, communications manager for the city, the city is responsible for cleanup of areas that are considered public right of way. Private land would need to be cleaned up by the owner. Without knowing for sure if the area is public or private, Gilliland recommends complaints such as this be lodged with the stormwater engineering division, 832-3123. Matt Bond, stormwater engineer, will review this area to determine whether it is a public or private issue.
