Anything you deem a mess or needs to be fixed

Notified About

  • Boston Street At Essex Street City of Salem, MA - City of Salem
    The light at Essex Street and Boston street censor lights do not work correctly. The lights switch within seconds if a car lags behind the double lights in front of the fire station. Therefore sometimes you have to sit thru two to three sets of lights to take a left on Boston Street. This is a huge issue because traffic backs up on Highland Ave and Jackson Street during busy times. So I'm asking if someone can check the light censors or move them so the lights will turn appropriately.
  • 35 Flint Street #304 Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    The newly paved sections of Flint St do not dovetail smoothly into previously existing pavement, especially at the intersections. There is a serious crack and ridge at intersections of Flint with Bridge, Federal and Essex Streets. The one at Essex and Flint is particularly bad, and will cause damage to car tires and rims as it gets worse. I had assumed the problem would be rectified by now, but nothing has happened, so I'm thinking you're not aware of the problem.
  • Boardman St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I lined up all of my new trash and recycling carts this week. The trash was taken without incident. They took the recycling (which was right besides the trash) but left orange stickers saying my bins did not have a"2 ft space between carts/cars/phone/poll". The bins are suppose to be placed at the curb, there is no way I can get a 2ft space between the carts and the parked cars without putting the carts right in the middle of the sidewalk. Any suggestions on where we are suppose to put all of these totes so we have no issues with collection in the future? I did call WM and they said they would note my concern.
  • City Wide Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    It appears the city wide paving will end in a few days leaving many streets unfinished with raised areas at the end of each street as well as driveways. Man holes on Jackson St are 4 inches below grade. City plows will get destroyed this winter as will many cars. This is a disgrace and someone should be held accountable. Why has the paving schedule of 4 weeks failed?
  • 134 Bridge St Salem 01970, United States - City of Salem
    Dumpster overflowing- AGAIN!
    Not acceptable.
  • 53 Butler Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    The sidewalk is blocked with 5 or 6 large potted flowers. It is illegal to block a sidewalk or park on a sidewalk. I dont know how they get away with it. Corner of butler st halfway up rawlins. If you park there they leave notes on your car.
  • 56 Forrester Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Drug dealer located in this building. Why can't the police do anything about this?
  • Butler St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    There has been an increase in cars speeding down Butler St towards Ord St. There are cars that seem to be going well over 30 MPH. There is a stop sign at the end of the street that has become optional to these fast moving cars as well.
  • Hospital Entrance At Jefferson Ave Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    This area was torn up a couple of years ago and never put back to normal, leaving large dips and raises along with potholes. The stretch from the hospital entrance to the DPW is a mess and really needs to be re-paved. The railroad tracks themselves have raised up as well and it is a hazardous bump now. Have already called the Engineer office and the DPW and both say they know it is an issue but it is not up to be fixed. Mayor Driscoll said in her FYI Salem newsletter to report such issues here.
  • 17 Mooney Rd Salem 01970, United States - City of Salem
    This entire street needs to be replaced.
  • 5 Monroe St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Busy narrow one-way street. No room on sidewalk for both trash bins and people. People must walk in busy street.
  • 95 Washington St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Recently Salem announced free meals at all schools. Why? Many families are more than able to either send food or pay for their child's food at school. Taxes keep going up, we are also spending a large amount of money on parks even though very few people use them and maintenance is non existent. The new park on New Derby is crazy. No parking and no parent should want their child to ride a bike to that location. Who is paying for all this?
