Elon, NC -- Calling John Long's yard last month a mess is an understatement. Dirt dug up - leaving big holes all around - surrounded by muddy stacks piling up - along with anger and annoyance.
Anger towards a company that promised to take care of the problem, but didn't - for weeks. It all changed after 2 Wants To Know's Call For Action got involved.
Long says Ansco & Associates was doing utility work on his street and left his yard in chaos at the beginning of April. Long tells us the company quickly tidied up all of his neighbors properties, but not his. So he called. And called. And called. Finally the company promised to repair the mess, but it no-showed.
"As wet as it's been they filled up with water really quick and there was the treat of mosquitoes plus the mess that it was, so it wasn't the best situation," Long said.
So 2 Wants To Know called Ansco & Associates, and the company no-showed us. But we didn't give up, and the company showed up hours after our second call. Ansco said they would get back to us for comment about the yard, but never did; however, the homeowner believes other people with consumer issues should also reach out to 2 Wants To Know for help.
"We called News 2 to see if they could apply some pressure, and within a week I would say they were out there and actually did a fantastic job fixing it," Long said.
