On Aug 25, we received the wonderful news that Koa Ridge students will be getting a school bus route beginning Aug 28. This would not have been possible without the community's advocacy.
After being contacted by a constituent on March 15th sharing concerns that the rink had been closed for over a year, our office sent a letter to the City's Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) requesting assistance. On April 12, the DPR crew came to clean and repaint the rink and it is now open.
A constituent contacted us on May 2 about a leaking roof issue and our office promptly sent a letter to the property manager on May 3. The property manager acknowledged the roofing proposals on May 15, and repairs are now underway as of June 22.
On April 7, we received a letter from a constituent who had fallen victim to a potential online scam in December 2022. Our office reached out to the Division of Financial Institutions (DFI) within the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs for help. DFI promptly responded on May 31 and will continue to provide assistance moving forward.
