    It’s 5:00 pm and dark in Veterans Park. Time change again and again I write to remind the city to turn the park lights on. Those in charge should be ashamed that they are unable to do their job. The time changes twice a year and timers should be changed in the parks of Holyoke each time. CHANGE THE TIME ACCORDING TO THE TIME CHANGE. This is a safety issue and someone should be in charge. I have a reminder on my calendar that alerts me of schedules, those in charge should try it. This is an example that no one cares for the safety of the community!!!

    This is my routine reminder to the DPW every few months when the sun goes down earlier and the time changes. 7:00pm last night the Veterans park is dark. This is a safety issue. I cannot walk in the park with my dog alone when it’s dark. The police are not around, never in the park, allowing criminal activities in the park. The lighting helps prevent some of this behaviour. I wish I did not have to ask for the lighting to change. It is the city responsibility to keep on top of the job. Change the time on the lighting ASAP, hopefully, I will not wait 1 month for this change.

    Good morning
    Why have snow plows neglected to properly plow the left side of High st heading North?
    The right side is cleared properly

    Also, why is there no suitable free parking for residents?
    If you want people to come live in the city proper, you need to make things inviting!!!!
    Every city We have lived in has resident parking stickers, albeit a one time fee
    Regardless of weather, at 8am -5pm, week days, we are forced to either feed the parking meter all day or find free parking that is non existant in the neighborhood or is far away
    We live above Brennans bar
    One of us works from home and not only is the quarter bill for feeding the meter expensive, its just a pain in our back side going up and down the stairs all day
    Kindly provide us with a response on both situations
    Thanks

    Veterans Park still do not have the lights on earlier enough. It is dark at 5:00.. I walk and people walking toward me and I cannot see their faces, are they carrying something, is someone walking up behind me? It is not safe and I feel vunerable. When the lights are on I am secure and confident. The street lights are on at a reasonable hour. I expect the same at the park.

    Another issue, across from the park a street light is flashing like a strobe light. It is located at the corner convenient store on Dwight.

    I really do appreciate all the good work that the city does, but they cannot know everything in the community.

    The lights in Veteran Park have not been adjusted since the time change.. walking at 5:00 pm in darkness.. the lights are not coming on until after 7:00pm.. This is a safety issue. It seems no one is in charge of the lighting needs in the Park until someone calls. Is it not set automatically??

    Veterans Park is a beautiful park and I love walking in the park.. since fall is here, the lights are not coming on and it is dark in the park earlier. If possible maybe the timer could be adjusted. It can be a little "scarey" thank you..

    Good day
    We live at 179 High st since Sept 1st
    Each Monday and again Wednesday at between 3am-4am waste management picks up a dumpster for Trinity management and Brennan's bar in the Alley behind High st creating a loud crash jolting us out of bed
    We have voiced and written complaints to both our landlord , Trinity management and to Brennan's with no change or solution
    We suggested that Waste Management change to a more acceptable pick up time like Republic waste pick up commits to and Fernandez restaurant does between 6am -11pm
    We are have fatigue problems during business hours due to lack of proper sleep
    We have even tried ear plugs but are still jolted out of bed in early dawn morning hours by the loud crashing of the dumpster to the ground which echoes because of the High narrow walls of the alley way
    Please help
    Does this problem fit into noise code violations?
    Kindly call us for further details or respond to us here

    John and Carla
    Thank you and we hope you are able to put an end to these loud crashes of the dumpster by waste management

    I wrote about this a few days ago , but I had the wrong side Street name, I apologize for any inconvenience.
    The issue is the couch sitting on the side street (John St.) and High Street. That couch has been there for probably a year. Lots of garbage in the vacant lots around the couch. . I walk to the garage daily and it does not reflect well for City of Holyoke.

    I walk to the covered parking garage and past on front street a vacant lot that has garbage and a decaying couch, that has been their for probably a year. Please have someone clean this area. It reflects poorly on our city. I am confused Nd don't understand why anyone would treat their home like a trash can. Unfortunately. I don't know the answer . Carla Brannan, 179 High Street
