The City of Dallas clocked more than 2,700 code compliance violations related to litter in June, and Council Member Adam Bazaldua’s District 7 stands out for the number of violations logged.

Polling shows that residents have been unhappy with “the amount of trash, litter, or junk” found in their neighborhoods and “elsewhere in the City of Dallas,” as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

According to the City of Dallas code compliance performance dashboard, District 7 saw 540 litter violations last month. Quite a ways behind District 7 was Council Member Tennell Atkins’ District 8, which had 373 litter violations recorded, the second-highest figure out of the 14 Dallas City Council districts. Council Member Carolyn King Arnold’s District 4 came in third, with 360 violations.

Each of the other 11 council districts logged fewer than 300 violations.

The total number of violations under consideration includes two categories of offense: “litter on private property, alley or parkway” and “litter on vacant lots and commercial properties.”

June marks the second month of City operations under interim City Manager Kimberly Tolbert, who is presumably holding down the fort until the Dallas City Council selects someone to replace former City Manager T.C. Broadnax.

Broadnax’s tenure was marred by several years of high crime, inefficient City services, and various debacles related to the Development Services Department, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

Despite the City’s huge budget, its delivery of services has purportedly been a source of dissatisfaction among residents. Poor road maintenance, litter in the streets and parks, and aggressive panhandling by homeless individuals and vagrants have been cited by residents as key points of dissatisfaction in polling conducted by The Dallas Express and the City’s satisfaction survey.

Broadnax’s departure spurred discussion in Dallas about what his successor’s priorities should be.

“It’s important that any new city manager is focused on core City services,” said Metroplex Civic & Business Association CEO Louis Darrouzet in a previous statement to The Dallas Express. “We would like to see the City get back to meeting the core needs of the city and cut back on peripheral spending.”

The City’s alleged inability to manage problems like litter prompted MCBA to launch its own adopt-a-block cleanup program.
