In May, I was able to make three new Beat contacts in Beat 9. I met with Mr. Matt Coyle, who lives on West Laurel Oaks Drive. Mr. Coyle had no problems or complaints other than the vacant residence across the street from him having high grass. I had previously done a security check of the residence after other neighbor complaints. Mr. Coyle stated that he had observed other City employees, possibly Code Enforcement, at the location photographing the problems. I also met with Mr. Gail Graves, who lives on Hawthorn Drive. Mr. Graves had no problems or complaints in the Beat, other than the ongoing road construction near his residence. I also met with Mr. James Brown, on East Laurel Oaks Drive. Mr. Brown had no major complaints, but stated that he and his family were moving from that residence because the lease had expired.
I located a black 1995 Buick Park Avenue bearing Texas license plate #CHC-7226, parked in the driveway at 1710 Cypress Drive that was in violation of the junk vehicle ordinance. The vehicle was registered to Angel Shorty at another address in Richmond, but I know that it has been at that location for some time, and has several flat tires. I also know that the residents at that location are named Longoria. I was unable to make contact with anyone at that residence. I issued a junk vehicle warning and placed it on the windshield of the vehicle. The junk vehicle from April was removed.
This month I also made a school visit to Deaf Smith Elementary. I made contact with the single registered sex offender in Beat 9 and verified that all information was current and correct.
