Sadly, no one listens. I've sent emails to every political level, and the SCPD, all they say is they are working on it. Clearly they are not. There is no time for talk, it is time for action! All these idiots need to be voted out of office. I hope everyone else is emailing all levels of govt as well, we need massive pressure to be put on them.

Earl....I hear ya!...Send emails all the time...Attend meetings, speak to PTB...SCPD Sargent in the area....Very little ever comes of it... I've got a great idea tho'....You know how slumlords are at times sentenced to spend time in the buildings they ignore?....How about we have the Mayor and her board live a week uptown...They'd have to bring their cars and park them up there and then work in the stores and sleep in apartments...No leaving the area...No having extra cops or having the area "cleaned" before their arrival....I'd just LUV to see that happen...AND see how quickly we'd see positive action uptown...

Great idea, be nice if one of these phony politicians really cared and did something like that to show all of us. Will never happen in a billion years!!

station a code enforcement officer on corner of Linden & main from 6pm-6am on foot patrol. enforce loitering ordinances. the reason the politicians don't care is because you cannot see Upper Beirut from village hall.

That would be a great idea...But your observation RE: Can't see Upper Beirut from Village Hall is the reason (or one of the many) nothing is done...there is NO code enforcement (other than tire chalking on cars, motorcycles are exempt, because code is afraid of ticketing them) uptown at all... The rumored plan for years has been to let the area rot & then use eminite domain to acquire the buildings, knock them down and start over...The more trouble there is up there and the less & less that the Mayor & Co do anything, the more the credibility the rumor has...
