For the third time in the past month calls went out from Salemtown residents for fire trucks to respond to illegal trash-burning today at the new development at 1620 6th Avenue North. I have not previously identified the offending property, but the burning keeps up, so it is time to finger and photo it.
I was surprised and saddened to see that the property is associated with Village Real Estate, a local company that tries to be a progressive, environmentally-conscious company. The Village agent and phone number are clearly shown in the photograph for those Salemtown denizens who want to give them a call and encourage them to require the builder and sub-contractors to stop burning their trash and to haul it out as they are legally obligated to do.
