UPDATE: Inter-American Defense Board (IADB) responds:


“The sidewalks of the Inter-American Defense board (IADB) where all shoveled and cleaned at 10:30 P.M., 5 hours before the time limit established according to the DC laws and regulations.
The work was accomplished by a Company contracted by the IADB and that work was supervised by staff from this Organization.

The IADB does however welcome your comments and suggestions helping keep the neighborhood clean and safe for all of our community

The IADB also appreciate the positive comments received regarding the care and efforts put in to maintain these areas clean and safe.”

“Dear PoPville,

I would like to report the Inter-American Defense Board for what I think may be violations, but since they are quasi-diplomatic, not certain.

The IADB is located on 16th Street and Euclid Street, NW. In eight years of walking along Euclid Street from west to east and catching the S buses outside of their building on 16th Street, not once have I seen them clear snow or salt around their entire property. They also never pick up any trash along the sidewalk adjacent to their property on Euclid Street between Mozart Place and 16th Street, NW.

Today was no exception. The sidewalks along Euclid and 16th were sheets of ice. Is there anything that can be done about these “bad neighbor” practices? They have a security gate surrounding their property, so I can’t knock on their door. If I call, they will ignore.”
