Officer Emanuel Vasquez
In the month of May, I met three new residents. I met Abel Rodriguez, Nicolas Hernandez and Eloy Alaniz. I met Mr. Hernandez while he was working on his front lawn. Mr. Rodriguez informed me that he has been residing in the Heights community for approximately twenty years. Mr. Rodriguez did inform me that he has a concern with the evening traffic commuting to George Park. Mr. Rodriguez stated the park traffic use Winchester to by-pass the traffic on Collins, but in doing so they travel at a high rate of speed. Mr. Rodriguez is concerned about a vehicle versus a pedestrian incident. I advised Mr. Rodriguez when the concern arises to contact the police department. I also advised Mr. Rodriguez that I would try and patrol the area to dissuade speeders on his street.
Mr. Hernandez has been residing in the community for about eight years. Mr. Hernandez informed me that unknown vehicles park in front of the parking lot entrance preventing the access to the parking lot. I advised Mr. Hernandez to attempt to make contact if the vehicle is occupied and if the vehicle is unoccupied to contact the police department. He also advised me that unknown vehicles park in the parking lot. I advised Mr. Hernandez that is an issue that he needs to address with the property manager.
I met Mr. Alaniz as he was working on his black Camaro. I learned that Mr. Alaniz enjoys building racing cars. Mr. Alaniz does have a very nice collection of racing cars. Mr. Alaniz has been residing in the Heights for approximately thirty years. As I was speaking to Mr. Alaniz, I noticed an old Chevrolet Silverado towards the end of his property. It appeared that the truck was not mobile and it was used for parts. Mr. Alaniz informed me that he did use the truck for parts. I advised him of the junk vehicle City ordinance and Mr. Alaniz informed me that he would remove the truck out of his property the following day. I am glad to report that Mr. Alaniz did remove the vehicle.
I also made contact with Mr. Marin. Mr. Marin did not have any concerns at the time.
