Fink is upset over damage done to a city street by employees working for a utility company.
Fink, who has gone up against the railroad in the past year, spoke plainly about his disgust at the damage done to a part of town by contractors.
Fink said residents of the 400 block of Dingess Street had contacted him about the matter when contractors working for Mountaineer Gas tore the pavement up to work on a project. When the work was done, the repaving job left a lot to be desired.
"It was the worst paving job I ever saw," Fink said.
Fink said Mayor Serafino Nolletti had contacted Mountaineer Gas about the matter and asked his fellow city council members to approve taking legal action against the utility company if the problem isn't fixed soon.
"It's ridiculous," Fink said, adding that the repairs should be done "before the contractor absconds."
Councilman Fink was not the only upset person at the June Council meeting.
Dolly Nelson said she was angry over a dumpster being moved from in front of her apartment due to the city's fire and building code. Nelson had several questions about the matter and said that people who live in apartments with limited space are having to store their garbage for four days at a stretch.
Nelson said she believes it is a health hazard to leave garbage in an apartment for four days.
"We have got bags in the hallways," she said.
Fire Chief Scotty Beckett said the city is not responsible to provide dumpsters. "That's up to your landlord," he explained.
In an interview after the meeting, Beckett said one dumpster in question was placed in front of a fire hydrant, which was a safety concern for fire fighters, which was why it was removed. Beckett said many people are upset at dumpsters in the street, as they become "rat-hazards."
Beckett said some apartments have a garbage room on the ground floor or basement level for tenants to store trash between pick-ups.
