Security and Hazardous Steps

These images were captured at about 2:30 PM on Monday April 4, 2011. They show the rear entrance door to the basement at 85 Prescott Street.

In this image you can see a small block of wood placed into the door stop to prevent the door from closing. Though I've had numerous conversations with the Office of General Counsel regarding building security by HRES and HUPD the problem continues. HRES did place a sign on the door saying to keep the door closed and to not prop it open. But signs do not work. Few people read these days.

In this image you cannot see that on the bottom wooden step there are two nails sticking up about 1/4 inch from the step. The nail can catch rubber or open shoes and cause a fall. This is the third time I ask HRES to fix the nails in that step. The bottom step was loose. The fix may be the cause of the new problem.
