Across The Street From 220 And 222 Gold Street South Boston, MA 02127 - South Boston
There is an empty lot across the street from several houses where someone leaves out wet cat food on a plate underneath a small table. I understand that the cats eat it but we've seen on several occasions that possums and skunks have been eating it too leaving to several rodent problems in the area, including cats and dogs being sprayed by skunks. I understand that the cats are being taken care of but this uncovered, wet cat food is causing several other problems.
The intersection of B street and 2nd street has a chicane that prevents the continuation of traffic down B street towards Broadway. This is unnecessary and only causes people to take a long route to Broadway down A street.

State police & state elected officials, please continue to try to curb the excessive drinking and Mardi Gras culture that has taken over at M st. beach in the summer. It is a disgrace that families don't feel comfortable at a local beach because of inconsiderate new neighbors that think it's ok to break the law and be beligerent in front of families and children.
The scrap metal shop on B street is not cleaning up after their work. They leave sharp metal and other debris from their business for dogs to walk over an cars to drive over. If the city isn't going to enforce that this business operates within acceptable standards then they should clean up after them. This is a very busy traffic and pedestrian intersection ad needs to be clear of sharp metal debris.
Example: A body was found in Flaherty Park. What should the public be aware of to help the police. The issue is that there is an increase in crime and the police need to start a process to empower us to help them. The body may have been a non-violent issue, but it is a quality of life issue and the police should be in constant communication with us.
The walk timer at this intersection (crossing A st while on Congress) is about 10 seconds long and only comes up every 3-4 minutes. This leads most pedestrians to get frustrated and cross when they don't have the light, but this can be a dangerous intersection with lots of traffic turning that may not see pedestrians. I've seen several people practically get hit here in the last few months. Better pedestrian right of way would go a long way to making this a safer intersection for drivers and pedestrians.
