Eyesore of the Week

WHERE: 7452 and 7454 Monterey St.

PROBLEM: Mass garbage dumping in the alley

RESPONSIBILITY: The owner of the building

CONTACT: Streets, Sewers and Trees Division with the City of Gilroy to report any illegal dumping: 846-0444

TIME ON EYESORE WATCH: 7 days

The alley behind a building in downtown Gilroy at 7452 and 7454 Monterey St. has been the target of mass garbage dumping.

“It comes and goes,” said Jenny Pariseau, an administrative assistant at Custom One Inc. on 22 Martin St. “It’s like a secret mystery community trash spot. I’ll go home one night, and everything will be clean, then I’ll come back the next day and it will be dirty again.”

Pariseau said it’s bad enough already, and it got worse last week. “It’s in the alley right behind us,” she said.

She thinks there may be brand new tenants in the building at 7452 and 7454 Monterey St.

“It’s not fair to the property owners, and on the other hand, it’s not fair to the city, either,” she said, pointing out the whole area is surrounded by dumpsters.
