Poorly lit parking lot elimination of cabs on that side with radios a Parking dept who is never seen on the scooter this all on the Northbound side and its not like Duff Perone and Morris don't know there is crime there but Norwalk is safe becuase why?Last week waiting for a family member we watched a man open peoples car doors asking for money its not safe and never has been without something that prevents bad behavior.Guess not until another election will any our elected officials care about safety for those who use the T.Its amazing who cares during an election not amazing after all these years who plays the voters.Where the victim took himself to the hospital may suggest he has called and waited for an ambulance in Norwalk before.

Its a shame Norwalk is known for its bar closing fights,this happens every weekend for the years Moccia was in office ,obviously our new Mayor is ok with it because it continues.Yes it was New Years but a good indicator what Norwalk is in for under the New Mayor.Ever ask how much crime continues while every cruiser we have is at the bars?Victims in Norwalk can tell you its never ending Monday morning where NPD is taking reports of typical crime sprees all year round.Overtime is one of the NPDs single complaint yet anyone realize how much ovewrtime goes into cleaning up Norwalk after bar closing?Usually a person who has been arrested after a brawl gets a free pass to the ER along with a cop date which we all pay for leaving yet another missing officer on the street.Our top cop tells us what kind of money overtime creates for the city yet why isn't there officers hired for these bars knowing full well trouble is going to happen.Taxpayers are played in Norwalk its obvious by the utube video how cruisers show up after a fight has been reported where no officer ever existed before the fight.Then any available ambulances Norwalk have are usually transporting those injured, usually a non Norwalk resident.Then it gets better the 80 year old lifelong resident needs a ride to the hospital and can't get a rig asap they have to wait for those who have come to Norwalk to drink and do blo a real good picture isn't it?
The question is how much overime is not covered by road jobs and extra hire for contractors?Every shooting leaves a 24 7 officer at the hospital and who pays for that?
For whats its worth maybe a private contractor could save the city money if we had them take care of the hospital detail that happens more than you would expect as a taxpayer.Honesty is not one on Norwalks best sides when it comes to saving money for the taxpayer but then again Rowyaton has the money to pay for our overtime not covered by dirt jobs lets just increase tax there,or has it already been done. Dave McCarthy may be a good mayor he can protect the wealth Norwalk seems to have.
Where is the facts on police overtime not covered outside of the police dept and is generated at the hospital?Norwalk deserves the truth not the politicians we have who know the truth but won't say a word and use the duf smile. View Comment
Ther picture the fire dept provided shows some inspection had to happen it has three new meters and that all has to be inspected before South Norwalk hooked it up so maybe it wasn't illegal after all.
This 2860 square foot multiple occupancy home has 6 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It is located at 204 S Main St Norwalk, Connecticut.
The big question is was the smoke alarms working and if not what is the fine?Can't expect enforcement without having a big bite can you?Its a trick question most of there know the answer. View Comment

I guess your all right,while standing there we heard dangerous chemicals so its only a rumor.If it wasn't for the tape no one would think of going into the house for the copper but what do I know.Nothing like advertising a free lunch. View Comment
Does this mean ambulances will come from Danbury to Norwalk to transport? Its already a wait in some cases to get the ill to the hospital.Cost cutting is great but not at the expense of someone in need of medical attention. View Comment
Shame Norwalk never gets the whole story,you have to wonder what else went on at the fire and if there is any danger to those who live nearby.This is what happens when there is no accountability.Its odd how the property is taped off today. View Comment
Not for nothing at least Dan gives us as much or even more than some of our own half baked politicians.I don't think money is on his list watch the news Ct didn't suffer like most states.Who in Norwalk suggested 211?Maybe he saw what Norwalk neglected to tell us or knows how lost the city is.Then again he was reaching out to those who havn't got heat etc.Guess if you read stories about people getting punched in the face in your warm home it will give you something to laugh about if they are Democrats.It was wind chill 30 below Maine this Morning something I have seen all the years I have been around.Not a big deal they are use to it.
You want something to kick about zero in on water at the fire dept that is marked in Spanish for emergency purposes.You paid for it.
I also agree we have a lazy generation up and coming but the elderly and disabled even in my day deserved some consideration. I shoveled those in need out before I walked a mile to school so what. View Comment
That just what the city needs to hear from Michele DeLuca wonder what her badge number is? Professional firefighters not only in Ct but thruout the country work all year round to prevent fires by communication something lacking in the Norwalk fire dept.Stamford has an adopt a hydrant program others have replace smoke alarm batteries to install new alarms,simple in house programs at school.Recently the Norwalk fire dept had Norwood Mass fire put on a class for the firefighters they themselves have three ambulances in their fire stations in addition to a whole program for emergency response.The various programs designed to enhance response here in Ct is amazing but because we don't hear about it as often as those in emergency service maybe Norwalk should overhaul its whole plan to serve a city of this size.Most departments that sit on the water has its own plan that ensures prompt timely response to all emergencies.Its been a pick and choose department for years leaving our police officers out there to explain why the fire dept doesn't provide some basic services most departments even in Ct provide.But we have a great fire chief in Norwalk who has a priority list that seems outdated for a city this size.If the police department is going to roll on every call and find themselves without equipment then its time to outfit them accordingly so when and if needed the police officers have what they need.Jump kits in cruisers at least until recent lack clean ample supplies to assist a first responder.Cant blame just the fire dept on this our State reps and congressmen lack the facts when grants are given a ride a year in a big red fire truck doesn't cut it only the PR seems to be the ride they are seeking from the city.
Check batteries,shovel hydrants,treat fire stations as if they were emergency shelters and buy trucks and equipment that they need not what is given in Trojan Horse grants.The mere fact Norwalk fire wants a repair shop opens up a liability factor most cities care not to share.
Yes atack my posting but when a fire dept posts pictures to the media then asks them not to use them in case someone sees poor firefigting skills that is a early warning to us all more needs to be done for our firefighters.Can't lay blame on any firefighter but you can ask those who run the show is their anything Norwalk needs that will enhance the safety of first the firefighter then the residents of a city this size.
Our police cruisers are not all in great shape they seem to have problems during most storms to have chains put on at the DPW is that something the fire dept massive repair shop can do?
Odd how this city works the division of responsibility is dictated by union rules and larger that life egos creating much concern for our firefighters and police officrs who give us 110 percent to us all 24/7.
Look at the surrounding cities and towns the programs, the protocal for response and yes the equipment.Channel 12 has a whole list of things from fire depts that show perfect planning prevents p!ss poor performances on a daily basis,emergency response is a year round 24/7 goal on land not sea we have other agencies for the water.
Im sorry but this reminder lacks a lot and none of it is because Norwalk has poor firefighters we simply have poor leadership.
Look at the Danbury Hospital emergency vehicles and trailors,look at Bridgeport short attack trucks the Stamford fire dept has countless programs and outreach services that delivers service to the residents and all have rt95 Merritt and the trains and train stations.
Most of Norwalks residents can't afford much more than candles it would show there is a concern for those who are not prepared for any emergency.I'm sure with the new fire station school house all firemen now can translate what any victim says in any language this was long overdue.
It all boils down to COMMUNICATION skills Moccia didn't have it no excuse for Harry and thats where our faith should be,he will do the right thing and let the fire dept have their own voice and take care of what the police officers need to be prepare for any emergency anytime not just before a storm.
Lets all see if Norwalk can do a better job than the first storm of the season.We all heard how a great job was done clearing the streets yet no one told us about the two dozen accidents created by the Norwalk DPW by treating the roads hours before the storm hit.Yes maybe they did a great job during the storm but by sanding the streets pretreating them left them as if oil was on them where even cruisers were spinning out.Seems the new Mayor is using Moccias old handbook of smoking mirrors.We can only hope Mayor Rilling has new cruisers coming in the fleet we now have is old and very injured leaving our first responders with nothing more than Lajoie specials.

What about the gunfire we hear in South Norwalk every Sunday morning?I'm talking those who shoot in Vets park or the shoreline is more like it.You have to wonder what our politicians do when laws are made and revised figure no shooting in Norwalk Harbour would be Duffs priority. View Comment
depressing looks like something Duff directed.Maybe its time the Democrats take a serious look who they have in higher office its time for a change in our State House as well.Recently we all got mail from Morris that also showed desperation guess the next election will be interesting. View Comment
Bridgeport just had a buy back on guns anyone know how many Norwalkers were part of the 150 guns turned in?There is a reason Norwalk PD gives this crime release out on the two crimes,they don't have to talk about the facts we would all like to see. View Comment
wow this was done before,yet the big question is who's letter head?Last time Sacred Heart did this there was a lot of under handed political playing where Norwalk Police letter heads were used and a whole lot of games with its victims before and after the survey.maybe this time the city can be honest with its residents so far it hasn't gone that way in years.Its like we just heard recently the police dept is certified,anyone can be if you buy the certificate like Norwalk has alwasy done.This ought to be good watching the games p[lay out now that we have a new mayor but yes he knows the games that go on after election he helped coin them years ago and yes its always after the election if the crime seems to be high.Now the next game is to see the crime stats two years from now reflecting the past year.Norwalkwers deserve the truth timely not after the fact after the next election.

Harry has done well but there is work to be done so some of his picks may be ill fated from the start.But Mo said what? Moccia tweeted that “Norwalk decided to go in a different direction.”
Yes your honor they have hoping some things change we will see won't we?
Today at 12:15 the police dept was working an emergency and needed the DPW so what in your the taxpayers mind happened? NOTHING it was lunch time leaving the police dept waiting for a call back after lunch,,,yes Dick you have passed Harry a mess so Harry what are you going to do its not the employees its your police fire and other city services tyhat need your help your on deck Harry lets see you fullfill your promise your team at least most of it have dropped the ball over the years so its up to you to help those men in blue that help us 24/7.This has to be your first challenge having a city department pick up the phone and do the job expected from the rest of us.
Have to admit we all picked Harry because we knew the evil that lurked after 8 years and now we wait for the evil we may not have known.
What about the emergency?It can wait its time for lunch at the DPW what a life the old man has on Smith street maybe he will retire change the game up a little for the taxpayers.
Maybe this is your challenge Harry see if your DPW will answer your police dept when they are needed not when its conveniant and maybe you will win the hearts of those who can't stand some of the ones you picked for the new team.
So if you didn't know how the city runs before this under Moccia lets see what it does after Mo leaves.maybe in the meantime someone can ask Dave McCarthy to intervene and help Harry out he seems to have invented slice bread while in the Navy.
Thanks for the advice Jackie,If I had the decaf today it would of slowed me down to talk about the stabbing where a woman was left with a large knife in her back on the streets of Norwalk to die.Norwalks image has been shot no need to thank anyone in particular at this point all of our politicians need to understand the election is over the fight for quality of life is ongoing thanks to our roster of folks who think they know Norwalk.More arrests and incidents in our Norwalk schools has increased by 20 percent since our State rep told us all how good we were doing,as a rule when they are wrong its old information that SOUNDS good why report failure thats what I do.

Im sorry I must add to this,Our state reps always say they have nothing to do how the city is run for years yet look at them now between NEON and our Mayors race they seem to have found something on Norwalk to run using every last drop of our blood sweat a tears now let them tell us they can't do anything now.Time to find someone who wants to go to the State house work for Norwalk and deliver more than mouth jargen when it comes to reasons why they can't help us in Norwalk.Take a long hard look at our three state reps and tell me what else can they take from us on the climb to the top? I know this won't post won't last long some say the reps have grown long arms into the press we will see. View Comment
