Santa Maria City leaders heard concerns from northeast resdents about the neighborhood issues at a meeting Tuesday night.
Nearly two dozen people showed up to the community meeting.
City leaders were there to answer any questions or address any concerns about the issues residents say take place in the northwest part of town.
Residents asked about freezing rent rates for seniors on fixed income. Other complaints include illegal trucking, food sales, parties, and even shootings.
At the meeting, Mayor Alice Patino said, "We'll just move in the direction of those issues or the problems that people said."
"A lot of us are tired of it, we want Alice and the city to start doing something for our city to get cleaned up," said Santa Maria resident, Harry Johnson.
City leaders say they plan to address the issues being presented to the best of their ability.
