Associated Issues

Details:

Il American water repaired a water break under the driveway of 4112 W Creighton Terrace in Peoria on or near the last days of December or the first few days of January 2018.;It was bitterly cold and while they stopped, repaired,the leak, they left the property in,a terrible mess, I.e. heavy mud and dirt. The weather soon changed and became warmer above 32degrees. This then made the excess mud and dirt a huge wet dirty mess. Nobody from IL American or the City returned to clean up the area in the least. It was on tires, shoes, yard and tracked everywhere in the area. The resident who takes care of a disabled woman also,had to wheel her through that muck and mud. The mess was then tracked day after day down sidewalks and into the street with other cars driving through the mess. Several houses had a mess and still have a mess as of Feb 4th. I feel this mess should have been cleaned up in some way by the men and company that made it. This is an eyesore and it’s caused many secondary issues with the resident incurring costs for cleanup of vehicles and possessions. The resident and a few neighbors actually shoveled and swept a large portion of the mess when it was realized nobody was returning to clean up their mess. I’m positive these workers would not have allowed this mess to remain in their yards. Please have someone check this and see if it warrants an attempt to have the responsible parties for the mess return and do what should have been done the first time. I am positive the mess would not have remained if the leak was downtown, in a City Officials yard or anywhere where commerce would have been affected. It’s a shame that hard working honest residents who follow the rules have to deal with a so called professional company’s half hearted work ethics.
