Frank Avenue between Seba and Lois Avenue still has a huge lake on the block, and they cant get any help from any city agency or any local elected or local group.
Here is a letter sent in Via email with an open Letter:
“Dear Lew Fidler, yes I do think you do a lot for the beach. But I must tell you that one night over a year ago the “politicians” were at the vollies hall for a meeting and we brought them on our block “frank court” between Seba and Lois to show them the swimming pool that is on our block every time it rains.
The street is sinking so is the sewer we have had the DEP , and the dot went and put tar a big patch right by the sewer that never drained the street properly to begin with now just backs the water up even more. A million documented complaints to 311 a video on this web site we were thinking might shed some light on this problem but nothing. Don’t know what else to do. And to shed further light a few years back after again many complaints because the water lays like a lake and cars pass by it undermined the beams in the front of my house from the constant water which in turn cost me a lot to have it fixed.
Something needs to get done to repair these streets. I know that it was discussed at the vollies meeting that night.

Update: April 23rd 2009 GerritsenBeach.net was contacted by Lew Fidlers office who explained that they were not part of that vollie meeting and was not contacted before about this, but now since they have, they are coordinating with the DEP and appropriate agencies to have this problem resolved ASAP, DEP is even sending an inspector TODAY.
