In the month of October, Beat 9 had a National Night Out Party at the Hanson residence at 1604 Cedar. There was a good turnout and the attendees included Chief Whitworth and Mayor Moore. I was able to make three new Beat contacts in Beat 9. I met with Bob Varano, who lives on Cedar Drive. Mr. Varano had no problems or complaints. I also met with Mrs. Stephanie Schumann who lives on Cedar Drive. Mrs. Schumann had no complaints or problems at the time. I also met with Mrs. Gwen Schaeffer, who lives on Cedar Drive. Mrs. Schaeffer had no problems or complaints.
This month I located a gray primer colored 1989 Chevrolet pickup truck that is in violation of the junk vehicle ordinance, parked in the driveway of the residence at 1810 Cypress Drive. The vehicle was registered to Ruben Valdez from an address on Leonard Street, in Richmond. I issued a warning for the City Ordinance violation and placed it on the front door of the residence, as I was unable to make contact with anyone at the residence. I will check back in the month of November to see if the vehicle is removed or brought up to code. The junk vehicle from October was removed.
Also this month I made frequent foot patrols of the abandoned structure, 1903 Cypress, to make sure there were no illegal activities occurring there and that no vagrants had entered the structure for shelter. I made a school visit to Deaf Smith Elementary. I also made contact with the single registered sex offender in Beat 9 and verified that all information was current and correct.
