Jamaica lot finally gets cleaned
Dear Councilman Leroy Comrie, Councilman James Gennaro, Councilman Ruben Wills, Queens Borough President Helen M. Marshall, Senator Malcolm Smith, Assemblymember Rory Lancman, Assemblymember Vivian Cook, Assemblymember William Scarborough, Iggy Terranova, Community Board #12 Members, Community Board #8 Members and Other Concerned Individuals:
Check out the article in the Queens Chronicle in regards to the empty lot at 91-22 175th St that was strewn with garbage and had a fence falling down, that pretty much none of you did anything about.
Last Sunday, February 3rd, I took photos of an abandoned lot with garbage galore and a wooden fence that was falling down at 91-22 175th Street and sent a scathing email to all the powers to be including the media. Well the next day, it was taken care of (almost 3 months later after first reporting it!). I had reported this situation back in November of 2012 and then reported it a second time on Sunday, February 3rd after checking the site to see if it was ever taken care of. Why it took so long and why not much seems to be done to this owner, Mimie Jagassar, who has outstanding fines of over $45,000 is another big question and another major problem with our system. How you elected officials, who are supposed to represent Jamaica and actually live here, allow this type of thing to happen over and over again is beyond my comprehension.
I have attached a photo of the lot that I took on February 10th. Yes, it is clean-up and the fence is fixed up, but it is still the same shitty wooden fence that will probably fall apart again and garbage will pile up again while this totally disgusting person who owns this eyesore, Mimie Jagassar from Jamaica, will just continue to do what she has been doing for years, nothing. Until you elected officials make some changes to the laws that allow repeat "pieces of shit" offenders like Mimie Jagassar or the rich white trash family the Gottis (yes, those knuckleheads) do whatever the hell they want in Jamaica, this will continue. Time for some of you to grow a HUGE PAIR and stand up for what is right.
