Dear Eleanore Turkington:
I’ve kept track of the trucks traveling on Voss Road for a while now. I wish I had a picture of at least one truck. But, they are traveling too fast for me to capture them. Mostly, the same white truck has been going through the “No trucks allowed” street sign.
Rather annoying when it’s rumbling up or down the street. I’m sure the damage is small to the homes but, over time, I bet there’s damage to our foundations. It was worse before the city paved the street. I know, it’s not easy to stop this as the times vary so much. I just hope this could stop. I understand, an occasional truck gets misdirected or has some problem navigating the streets, but, I’ve seen the same trucks keep cutting through.As always, thank you for being there for the people of West Haven.
I have submitted your numerous truck gripe to Lewis Esposito, Mayoral Executive Assistant. I also received your detailed records of identified trucks and will be ready to submit this report to the city if requested.
Please be sure to let me know if you see police surveillance on Voss Road within the next week or two or not and I will follow a second request with this list of offenders.

Dear Eleanore Turkington:
There is a tree planted on the corner of Laurel Street and Soundview that obstructs the view of oncoming cars. Has this tree been removed or cut back in order to alleviate a potential danger?
The city’s Executive Mayoral Assistant, Lewis Esposito had received your complaint and has informed Gripe Vine he is investigating this gripe. Watch for his complete response on this issue in my next column.
