Last week residents spoke up about poor living conditions and poor billing at Oak Villa Apartments.
The Mayor mentioned how she was not happy with the situation and was frankly "disgusted" with the situation and what residents were sharing about the conditions.
She boldly stately what could be done about this. Yesterday (10-29) all departments were assembled for 300 to 350 Oak Villa Residents in attendance to and presented to and listened to Oak Villa Residents. Code Enforcement and Police. There are concerns about drug dealing, safety, and crime.
Irving PD are on it thanks to Mayor being proactive. I have never seen so much willingness for the city departments to work with residents as I saw yesterday. And fellow folks active in being around city government have mentioned the same.
We give thanks to a Mayor willing to take the lead on this.
