Not a good day for your department. The officer harassing the citizen in the parking lot is troubling to say the least and probably criminal! He appeared to have no interest in what the gentleman was ...saying and seemed to have already made up his mind that he was guilty of whatever crime the officer could conjure hell with the Constitution or the law. I feel very strongly that the camera saved the citizen from some made up charges. If the officer is so blatantly dismissive of individual rights while being recorded; one can only imagine what happens when his camera is the only one running! Of course those recordings never get lost...right? See More

I have only ever had extremely positive interaction with the police force who have always been over-the-top kind caring respectful especially one officer who immediately was kind caring and compassion...ate when speaking with my autistic teenager. Completely in love with the amount of respect and kindness the police force shows on a continual basis. See More

We home owners are getting screwed with water rate increases because the City can't see into the future during the drought. Home owners did their job to conserve by 20% and in the end we get screwed b...ecause of it. Then the City puts BS language in their rate increase proposal saying there will be 2 rates, Drought & Non Drought. Who decides when it's a Non Drought year? This was put in place in hoping it would make people feel warm and fuzzy that the City is helping rate payers, Hogwash! As far as I'm concerned we rate payers are getting the shaft and the City can pound sand!!!! See More

Brought my kids to the park off laloma today. Ewing? Not sure on the spelling. I was pretty saddend ..this park has so much potential with the bridge over the creek , it's beautiful gives a very feel in the middle of the valley. Dozens of squirrels. However the amount of transient and obvious drug use is staggering...not talking about the homeless old timers ...but the clusters of 20 somethings shooting heroin and smoking dope. If they enforced the no camping rule this place would flourish... The bathrooms are " closed due to vandelism" one isn't locked and has broken toilets soiled clothing torn up "missing" posters . It's not a huge park and seems to be very easy to turn around and maintain..... Sadly I don't see it happening See More

Got to love it when the police harass someone for walking in a parking lot. Clearly a case of harassment for him fliming an officer running tags on private property. Lame!

We had an issue with our water pressure pulsating throughout the house. It was noisy and caused our water filter to leak. I emailed City of Modesto and a technician arrived within minutes. Long story ...short, the issue was with our swimming pool auto-fill valve. Paco figured it out within minutes of arriving. Problem solved. Extraordinary customer service! City of Modesto: thinking outside the box....going the extra mile. Thanks gentlemen. From: A very satisfied customer. � See More

This police department is just like all the other department that let their officers talk down to the taxpayers. Shame on the chief.

You have a great town, but it is being seriously marred by your inaction to stop the killing of innocent animals by hunters. Cats are being slaughtered in your city and proudly posted across FB. Sur...ely this is illegal and the good citizens of Modesto will be outraged hearing this is happening in their home town. See More

UPDATE: Day 1 of abatement at 624 9th Street. City Council approved funding to abate the property following a fire that caused significant damage in early October. Abatement crews will be at the property throughout the week. One northbound lane of traffic will be closed, so expect congestion in the area. Prior post (9/1/17): Thanks to the many hands of city and county employees, community groups, advocates and volunteers, the 68 tenants in the 27 units at the condemned 624 9th Street apartment building have been safely relocated. More than half of the tenants have found permanent homes and the remaining will be placed in temporary housing. All of the animals from the apartment building are being housed with their owners, at foster homes, or at the animal shelter. Staff will continue to work with those in temporary housing to connect them to resources and find long term solutions. There is a shortage of affordable housing in Stanislaus County. Any landlords who have vacancies that wish to help with permanent housing are encouraged to contact Jeanette Fabela at Community Services Agency, 209-525-6529. #CommunityPartnerships #CityOfGreatNeighbors #WeAreModesto #Modesto
