Concrete company creating a big mess
From the Queens Chronicle:
Ozone Park resident Paul O’Neill has been in the area for decades and has never had a problem with the surrounding businesses — until now.
O’Neill, and others who spoke to the Chronicle, say concrete business Prime Ready Mix has been the source of a number of quality-of-life issues in recent years and it’s only getting worse.
The main complaint from nearby homeowners is the dust and sand that emanates from the business, located at 87-13 Rockaway Blvd.
The Department of Building’s website states one caller said, “There have been numerous amounts of dust and sand all over the place, seeping into homes. This influx of dust causes allergies and many people have gotten sick.”
Those who spoke to the Chronicle said vehicles, barbecue grills and other items have been ruined by the dust.
A man named Sean, who identified himself as the owner of Prime Ready Mix but did not give his last name, said in a telephone interview he’s doing the best he can to keep the area clean.
