Kudos via Email - Employee [Kudos]
I was faced with the challenge of reaching someone at the Division of Highways for a street closure permit that I had applied and paid for at least a week earlier and needed the actual permit the next day. I tried calling everyone and was about to drive an hour from my job to see if I could obtain the permit in-person. J. Durant was the last person I called and she immediately begin to help me and even assure me that she would do everything in her power to keep me from driving an hour for my permit. Janice made good on her promise and within an hour I had my permit e-mailed to me. I couldn't have done it without her and she deserves great notice for saving me the frustration, hassle and perhaps even my job. Thank you for employing such an amazing person.

I have Monday pickup. Yesterday my husband saw the recycling truck and crew come down the street. One of the workers, a female, took our two recycling buckets and dumped the materials into the truck. She saw my husband coming out of the house to take the two buckets in. She said she’d do it. We have a driveway in front of the house, and she placed the two bins in front of our garage door. My husband thanked the worker for being kind.

I want to thank the team that removed the tree from my lawn. They were professional, courteous and caring in performing their duties. It was quite impressive watching them work as a team, while respecting the property of residents. Not only did they remove the tree, C. Palmer and D. Kinsey of the Bridge Maintenance Unit cleaned stray branches off lawns and in the street! They worked in safe and expeditious manner while making the effort to advise those watching to cover their faces prior to using the blower. This experience made me proud to be a resident of this city. That entire team needs to be commended and should know their efforts were greatly appreciated! Thanks for a job well done.

This morning a crew of 5 men came to put down asphalt over the cement in front of my house (100 block of Ellsworth). The Street Department personnel this morning were friendly, polite and did a very careful job. When I mentioned that I would like them to pay particular attention to my sunken curbstone (because of the recent flooding) one of the men said that they already knew about this request with the implication that they would certainly follow up on it. They did. I expect that this final part of a repair to a large sinkhole and separation of the asphalt of the curbstone in front of my house will put an end to the basement flooding that my husband and I experienced. So, once again, the crew did a very good job.

I want to compliment a street SWEEP enforcement officer, A. Garcia, badge number 988. I happened to run into him on the street the other day and he immediately helped out with an issue (the next-door developers portable bathroom was in the street). Within a couple of hours he had it moved, and it has stayed moved, which makes the place look better, of course. We really appreciate Streets Department's help, and want the appropriate people to know.

I'm writing in from 3300 block of Tilden Street as I wanted to thank the recycling group for great service. The bins are always placed carefully back where they belong and pickup is regular. Today I wanted to call out a really nice young man who handed the bins back to me as I said thank you and he replied with a smile "We try". So I thought that with everyone always complaining about service- perhaps a compliment now and again might go a long way for these guys that have to work in the hot sun picking up what others won't.

Good Morning, On Monday, June 29,2015 at 10:10 AM I contacted the streets department in reference to the above streets being resurfaced after they were dug up since April. I expressed my frustrations to an Umie Lee who listened intently and took down all the necessary information for her to look into and give me a call back. She explained she had to e-mail the highway division to inquire what the delay was. Ms. Lee called me back at 10:27 AM to inform me the streets would be resurfaced by the end of the week. When I got home that afternoon the streets were being resurfaced. The job was completed 7/2/15 and the streets look great. I would like to commend her on quick action and not brushing me off as if it weren't her concern. There no doubt should be more caring employees like her in the work force. Hopefully you can copy her on this e-mail expressing my gratitude.

A LETTER TO THE EDITOR OF PHILADELPHIA MAGAZINE [In The News]
Dear Mr. McGrath: I was disappointed with your June article concerning trash and litter in Philadelphia. The Streets Department provides unprecedented access to its senior manager, operations, and data to fully inform the writer about our work and the challenges that we face. You chose, however, to edit the story to narrowly focus on the tired and inaccurate stereotype of careless sanitation workers being the cause of litter on streets, sidewalks and in parks. In addition, most of the suggestions that your sidebar promotes were vetted and rejected in Philadelphia years ago due to expense, inefficiency and/or impracticability.
