Dear PoPville – Advice on Keeping my Alley clean?

no pissing

Dear PoPville,

I’ve a got a problem and I would appreciate PoPville’s advice. I live in a row house near the corner of a major street in Columbia Heights. The problem is that me and my neighbor’s alley fence seem to be a preferred spot for inebriated individuals and the homeless to relive themselves – No. 1 and 2. In addition to using our fence as a toilet, the alley is also a preferred place to down some brews and bum wine based on the trash I pick up there almost weekly.

It’s vile – I can’t even spend time in my backyard the smell is so bad.

Is there anything I can do to make the area less attractive to guys looking for relief?
