The mayor has a Response Center set up and you can call 311 and complain or report a situation that needs attention.
I’ve called about excessive litter at the base of the Duquesne Incline, a hornet nest on a city tree , a streetlight was out and needed to be replaced and last week I called about stop sign on Larimer Avenue that was blocked by tree branches snd it couldn’t be seen.
This morning I was driving to Zeke’s get coffee grounds for my house guests and look who was working hard to rectify the very problem I reported!
Meet John (everyone calls him Johnny)
Thank you for responding, John!

A sneak peek from the catalog of the show. Tonight I just had the old iPhone with me and didn’t capture the artwork. Took a few shots of the artist and a few family members- I didn’t ask if it would be okay to blog them so if you are in the Pittsburgh Area you have until July 15th to experience these stunning paintings in person.
Lots happening on Penn Avenue as it was a first Friday and it’s called Unblurred

Friendship Bagel complete with an Ode to a Spring Meadow Poem on the sidewalk in Garfield on Penn Avenue.
And when we crossed the street to ensure our friend V got in her car, I captured one of the new Artistic Tree Grates that have been installed recently as part of the Penn Avenue Reconstruction
How about this artistic tree grate?
We were walking across the street to the playground and saw two woodpeckers pecking away on this rotting tree stump. One flew away. iPhone shots today.
