Black Lincoln Town Car NY lic No. COMM 245 parked and idling at hydrant in no parking zone.
Told 311 operator of idling but did NOT report it to DEP. Takes too long. This 311 report took 12 minutes.
In what must be frustrating for the police, a 311 complaint was addressed with great efficiency but to no result. Kudos to the 78 for trying. 311 sent an email as follows:
Service Request #: C1-1-806792551

Details: Blocked Hydrant
Your Service Request was closed.
The Police Department responded and upon arrival those responsible for the condition were gone.
We should have a way to text this kind of complaint in order to reduce the lag time between complaint and action so that the police do not waste any time. This is a peculiar situation but must be repeated often.
