Georgetown Issues 'Rocky's Report' for April 11
April 11, 2012 – Hi everyone. I hope you enjoyed the holidays and are settling into spring.
Our students are back from Easter break and are preparing for finals and the end of the school year. As I mentioned last week, we are making preparations for our students living off campus to move out at the end of the school year in May. We do our best to provide resources for students to properly dispose of trash as they move out. Our community advisors will work with students to get items out safely and will help to manage special daily bulk trash pick-ups between May 9 and June 1. This year we are also working with our neighbors at Holy Trinity and with KEYS for the Homeless to collect items to be donated to families in need. We really appreciate their support and are glad useful items like furniture, clothing, food and toiletries will go to residents in the metro area instead of landfills.
This past week we had a couple of calls, one to 911 and one to our SNAP hotline for noise. Even though most students were away, we had the MPD reimbursable details out along with our SNAP teams. On Saturday night at 11:30 p.m., MPD responded to a call from T Street and found a handful of students sitting on the porch. The SNAP team was also present and noticed loud party noise coming from a residence just around the corner on 37th Street. MPD went to the location and addressed the issue. This was not a Georgetown student house.
Our SNAP team out on patrol found a disruptive student in West Georgetown on Saturday night and called our Department of Public Safety for assistance, which responded along with the reimbursable detail. We were thankful that our SNAP team called for help and prevented a further disruption in the neighborhood.
One other quick update from last week. I mentioned that Prospect Street would be closed for a short time this weekend for repairs to one of our buildings. Turns out it won’t be closed this weekend after all. We will keep you updated on when this will take place in the coming weeks.
That’s all for this week. Until next week – be safe!
