There is nothing new about tire dumpers but its interesting that they may be emboldened by the Covid problems. The city is scrambling to maintain basic services, so its a safe bet that these guys think they get a free pass to dump when and where they want.
So if you are near 2166 Granite Street in Frankford, a parking lot for the now shuttered Chateau Caterers, you may see a massive pile of tires. Neighbors have reported it to 311 but no action so far. DAY BY DAY THE MOUND GETS BIGGER.
Being so close to Torresdale Avenue, my guess would be they came from up that way.
Frankford NAC is hosting a community service area briefing on December 28th from 5pm to 7pm. Our presenters are Vicki Riley (Revenue) and Diane Martino (PGW). They will be presenting assistance programs for your property taxes, water and heating help for this winter.
The City of Philadelphia is helping renters stay in their homes. One way is by offering emergency rental assistance to help tenants who have lost income due to COVID-19. Rental assistance helps landlords too.
Applications for Covid rental assistance are available at the Frankford CDC (4667 Paul Street). You can pick one up on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 am to 1 pm. The entire application must be completed with proof of income ID and copy of the lease. The landlord must sign a few documents as well.
Once the application is finished in its entirety, you have the option of either mailing it or faxing it. Partially completed applications will not be accepted.
See details below.
