Part 23 – August 3-9, 2017

My rooomate and I both planned to have one of us home all day on August 3 to deal any entry. At 10:30, Agostino called.

2017-08-03 1031 – Conversation Agostino Bosch – 2017_08_03_10_31_12894892913_In

A transcript of the conversation follows:

PB: Yes?
AC: This is Agostino, how you doin’ today?
PB: Not too bad, what’s up?
AC: {indistinct}, Okay I got good news. I don’t think we’re coming in today, he’s…he’s waiting for a call back on the inspector.
PB: Okay

AC: He doesn’t know for sure about the entry so…today or tomorrow he doesn’t know for sure. He’ll call back on Monday.
PB: Okay.
AC: So I assume the day’s yours right? Do whatever you like, all right?
PB: Okay. All right. Well….
AC: If anything changes, I’ll call you, right?
PB: That’s what I was gonna ask, okay.
AC: Not a problem, all right?
PB: All right, thanks Agostino.
AC: If anything else, you can do something for yourself, maybe. If you get ahold of that inspector, and ask him to call you before they come, that would be good too, eh? That way you could be ready for them, eh? They’ll give you a day’s notice or something, right?

PB: Well yeah, he was supposed to do that anyway, he was supposed to call as he was coming over and …he was supposed to come over sometime…sorry, he was supposed to call sometime today. I don’t know if he’s coming over.
AC: Yeah. He’ll probably make arrangements today with you right?
PB: Yeah.
AC: They might do it this week, it might be next week, you never know with these guys right?

PB: Well, I just want it passed and your brother out of {indistinct}
AC: Well I know but you can’t push these guys. City people, they do whatever the hell they want. Well…
PB: Well you can, it just takes a lot of effort.You can push ’em Auggie, you just really have to push.
AC:Yeah I know. Then if you push hard then they become assholes to you.

PB: Yeah.
AC: {indistinct} for yourselves, right?
PB: Yeah I got no problem with that. Um, I just don’t want your brother showin’ up for some bullshit excuse and causing a ruckus again.
AC: Well I think this will be one of the last times he’s comin’ in if he comes at all, right?
PB: That works for us.
AC: Okay.

PB: All right. Thanks Auggie.
AC: I’ll talk to you later. Bye now.
PB: Bye

I didn’t have Steve Woods extension handy (every City employee has the same phone number with a four digit extension number) so I left a message on Shewfelt’s voicemail at 12:30. I’d had a few things to get done first.

Around 3:20, Steve woods called back on my cell phone.

2017-08-03 1528 – Bosch Woods Conversation – 2017_08_03_15_28_19055462424_In

He told me he would come by on Tuesday, August 8, 2017 to inspect the work and check into the rest of my complaint (which he characterized as my “other” complaint.)

On August 8, 2017 he came by to inspect the work done on the latest two compliance orders written by Donna May Lord after the June 30, 2017 inspection (Property Standards Order No. 17-117381 00 MLE and Property Standards Order No. 17-117393 00 MLE).

Here’s the video:

2017-08-08 – Bosch Woods Conversation

Mr Woods did his paperwork, and would eventually write another compliance order for the property ordering John to repair the cracked windows, but not the screens.

Which in due course (on August 29, 2017) resulted in another compliance order, John’s sixth for the year on this particular property.

Around 13:30 I heard some noises from the stairwell leading down from our front door, and went to investigate. It was Agostino, working on the front door of the building (presumably to correct the maintenance deficiency that Lord found on her last inspection). There was some idle chit chat, followed by Agostino discussing the LTB situation. His opinion of Member Henry is interesting, and I’m not sure I disagree.

Around 8 pm, as I was entering the building, Richard Pollington and another man I don’t know approached me. Richard said to the man “That’s him, the welfare bum.” The other man said “He’s just a fag. You gonna let a fag dis youse like that?”. I ignored it and went inside.

There was banging, car horns, loud discussions and several metallic clanging sounds that I haven’t heard in the building before or since. It sounded like the Pollingtons were doing construction in their unit but I doubt they were. There was a hearing the next day, so the harassment escalated, as usual.
