Like many of you, this is the time of year when most of us look over our files to either update or eliminate them. Within Gripe Vine files, I have found a number of complaints that appeared dangerous to the public such as roadways with malfunctioning traffic lights, deep potholes on the road, missing stop signs or eyesores within the city.
Some of these I have called to the attention of your district’s councilmen and councilwomen who have either chosen not to investigate further or were not able to answer my questions. West Haven residents deserve our help whenever we can be pf service. It’s a hanging electric wire, a potential fire hazard, a deep hole in the road, graffiti or a request for a city ordinance,.
On the other hand, I would like to ask the readers of this column, if you have submitted complaints and do NOT see an improvement in a reasonable length of time, please let me know and I will investigate them further.
Dear Eleanore Turkington:
I and my friends miss visiting the Ward -Heitmann House a museum. I understand this is the oldest standing building in West Haven. It hasn’t been open to the public in some years.. Do you know when it will reopen?
