Several nose-holding citizens (or maybe just one particularly incensed citizen) filed 311 complaints yesterday and today about a stench-creating garbage truck that's been just sitting on North Street over the weekend:
One complaint goes:
How is this ok? Open air trash truck sitting all night in front of residences. Rats. Liquid refuse all over the street. Gagging stench.
Giant disgusting smelling trash truck is STILL outside my apartment and making it unbearable to be in my apartment. Code enforcement mass them move this morning, and now they are back. This is a code violation. Get them out of here. They aren't supposed to be here and are ignoring what code enforcement told them to do this morning. This is NOt acceptable. The smell is intolerable and I can smell it with the windows shut in my 3rd floor apt
The city, however, throws up its hands and says:
Cannot cite for smell no violation found at this time.
