  • 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.
  • 8 Harbor Street Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    I walk past this little park twice a day, and twice a day it's full of trash, used condoms, and the occasional needle. Homeless and drug addicts are often hassling those passing by. I understand the homeless might have nowhere to go, but the area should at least be cleaned up a bit. Is this not a priority because it's in a lower-income part of the city?
  • Ord St. Ct. Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem

    3/2/15 @ 3:30pm Tested street water line and it's still frozen !!!! Can anyone tell me who in the city government would go two week with their water coming in through a garden hose without enough water pressure to even take a shower ??????

    I'm not getting any real feed back from the city. Is the resource they talked about the spring thaw !!!!
    I am one major frustrated and angry taxpayer now. Understanding can only go so far !!!!!

  • 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?
  • Bell Apartments On Bridge Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    This spot has still not been cleared. It's a crosswalk that's normally very used and hasn't been all week. Our kids can't get to their school bus stop. Terribly dangerous and being completely ignored.
  • 12 Gifford Ct Salem Ma - City of Salem
    It is going to take a bucket loafer to clear the road. My cars are blocked in and cannot get out. We have been stuck since the storm.
  • 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?
  • Graffiti Archived
    98 Collins St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Tons of Racist graffiti the length of the wall
  • 115 Mason Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Sheet of Ice, unable to stop at stop sign. Corner of Mason Street diagonally from the Moose Lodge. Slide right through. Very dangerous.
  • Pot hole Archived
    Bridge St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Pot hole on the north bound lane across from coffee time. Blew my tire out, and I was only doing 15 mph.
    Am I mad as heck, you bet I am!
    This was caused by a private contractor installing utilities. Not by Verizon or nat grid, they almost always do a good job repairing their work.
    The city needs to crack down on these private contractors getting paid to dig up OUR TAX PAID ROADS, then doing a crappy job of repaving!
    If they dig it up, and don't do a quality repair, they should be fined, and made to fix, or no more permits allowed in this town.
  • 53 Highland Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I am re-posting with the correct addresses, they are from 51 to 59 Highland st. again tonight I had to walk in the street! (I am Disabled with knee replacement in April, I can not run from and dodge cars when I am forced to walk in the street every night for years, All the cars here park on the sidewalk. They got ticketed once but still park "on the sidewalk so your forced to walk in the street! Its on the Salem side of Highland st. and it not like they don't have a driveway because they do! SPD needs to start ticketing these cars. I was nearly hit by a car trying to walk my dog in the street around all the cars on the sidewalk! Apparently the law does not apply to these people!) https://www.municode.com/library/ma/salem/codes/traffic?nodeId=SATRORSAMA_ARTVPA

  • 19 Flint St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Sidewalk trees are dying! Five trees on Flint St between Essex and Warren appear to be infected with a fungus. Their leaves turn brown and fall off. An additional six or seven trees on Essex (heading toward Highland Ave) and Warren are also affected. Is there a remedy?
