I wish to thank Mayor Ed Hansen, Mr. Roberts and Mr. Crawford as well as the city council for their concern, regard and quick action taken in looking into the flagrant destruction of urban wetland habitat along 4th Avenue in Lowell. Once they were aware of the destructive and unlawful activity, actions were taken to stop it. The key point here is – once they were aware of it. Precious time was lost and habitat unnecessarily destroyed because the citizens trying to contact someone to stop the destructive actions of the offending contractors were unaware of the correct number. The 24-hour number to call for emergencies in the city is 425-257-8821. The staff will then contact the appropriate person to respond. Had the 4th Avenue neighbors been able to access the Public Works Department over the weekend, the property that was degraded and destroyed could have been protected.
Thank you, as well, to the neighbors who called me to let me know about this problem.
