There is a landslide on in Hercules that has been a problem for many years.
This landslide threatens peoples' homes, including that of the Vogele family.
The Vogeles' are good people. Augie Vogele and his parents, Billy and Barbara built our school garden at Hanna Ranch.
Matthew Vogele is serving our country in Afghanistan. This family deserves our city leaders' full support.
There are city safety ordinances related to public nuisance that are not being enforced. I hope this public nuisance safety violation will be treated seriously, and the Vogeles' family home can be saved.
On November 11 there was a meeting with Patrick Tang, John Macguire, Billy Vogele and HOA representatives. This was a good first step. Now a plan of action must be made. I urge everyone to imagine that the the home at risk were their own family home. Would anyone feel that waiting for month after month, for over two years, is an acceptable response?
I hope that all of the leaders involved with solving this problem will treat the Vogele family the same way they would like to be treated if the threatened home were their own. It's way past time, please do something,
