    State St. Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    The sidewalks along State Street are very icy and heavily used. This presents a slip and fall hazard for the many faculty, staff, and students of Framingham State University who use these sidewalks.

    Dear Framingham Govt.
    It is with disbelief and pain that I walk past City Hall only to see the tattered, drooping, discolored , unproud US Flag barely flying at CITI hall?!!
    Would it be such an enormous expense to set up new , proud Flags?
    Better not to fly the banner than what you have currently. Is it mandatory for you to have flag posts on your buildings?

    I would be more than glad to pay for the installation of new Flags. Send me a bill ASAP: Animesh Goswami: PO Box 1911, Framingham MA 10701

  • Worcester Road At Caldor Drive Framingham, MA - Framingham
    My wife and I have enjoyed living our first six months in Framingham. We live in Oaks Road, and use Route 9 every weekday to get our baby girl to daycare. We have been noticing since the last three weeks that timing of the traffic signals at the route 9/Caldor Drive (Walmart) intersection are off. It seems the green double turn arrow was lengthened. But this extra time has shortened the duration of the green light for the route 9 eastbound direction. this is causing significant backups all the way to Oaks Road on the weekday morning hours. Can this be corrected to timing that was used during March and April, as it seemed to work better. Thank you for your consideration. Chris and Lindsay Valarezo, 58 Oaks Road.

    Hello, I ate lunch at Bertucci's in Framingham yesterday with my friend. She is allergic to peppers and asked specific questions about the food preparation to ascertain if the pizza she ordered had peppers. She told the server she was allergic to peppers, as well.

    She requested plain olive oil, because the olive oil served with the bread had been infused with peppers. The server was definitely aware she had an allergy.

    When her pizza arrived, she took one bite and turned away coughing very hard. Her pizza had been served with hot pepper flakes on it! Luckily, I carry Benadryl in my purse, as I have a daughter with several food allergies. I gave her one, but she had no water. I asked two different servers, not our own as she was nowhere in evidence, and requested we get some water and to please send our server over. I even told them she was served something she is allergic to. The entire staff was deplorably lackadaisical, acting as if it was no big deal. I finally got fed up waiting and got up to find someone to bring her water. I found our server and she asked me, "Ma'am, why are you acting so upset?" She obviously had no clue how serious a food allergy reaction can be.

    So we finally get water and my friend finally gets some Benadryl in her. It began to help her immediately, but there is no way she should have waited 5-10 min to get help. Timely administration of medicine is needed to stop an allergic reaction from turning into anaphylaxis. It's a damn good thing I was there, because the staff had no clue!

    I do not believe they were aware of the MA Food Allergy Awareness Act. No one other than our server came out to check on Rose. At the very least, I would have expected a visit from the manager. I have a food allergic child and whenever there is a concern, we usually speak to a manager or chef. I asked to speak to a chef and was told one wasn't there. I do not believe this particular Bertucci's takes food allergies seriously.

    It is glaringly obvious the staff was not well trained in food allergy awareness. IF they were trained, then the training was shockingly ineffective. I would like you to investigate and determine if corrective actions are needed. I have contacted Bertucci's with these same concerns.

    Can you please turn on the streetlights on Meadowview Ln and Fieldstone Way? I believe the streets have already been accepted by Framingham for the subdivision.
  • Bishop St Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    On Friday, March 25, 2016 at 3:27 pm someone at bishop St Framingham, MA - 01702 hit me on the back of my car while I was completely stopped in traffic. The accident was very minor but it did indent my back bumper and cracked it. My plate number is PAN - 1FS477, the car is a silver Lexus IS250. I called 911 and was told to just file a police report online though the Framingham Police department website because it was a minor accident. I was told I had five days to file the report. I exchanged information with the other driver. Drivers plate number is PAN- 298VR2. The drivers name is Gonzalo M Ortiz. The police report is just a proof for insurance services.

    Thopson St /Sanger St Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    The police said they are instructed not to ticket illigally parked vehicle's because they are attending church.
    That is not serving the public.
    That is making an unsafe environment by choosing not to keep the peace. Most concerning is how in the event of a fire or medical emergency.The inadequacy of the police to due their job is endangering the entire downtown Framingham community
    The pandering to the church must be the direct result of corruption in the F.P.D. and the unwillingness to perform enforcement of posted traffic signs is not tolerable when the bottom line is life's are being endangered.

    is there tax relief in framingham for seniors
  • Gates St Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Every morning around 3am, they begin construction on what I believe is Framingham Country Club. It sounds like I'm living next to a quarry, and when the heavy machinery backs up, it sounds like it's right outside my window (I live at Chapel Hill West Condominiums) I have to wake up at 5am to go to work in Boston, so being woken up at 3am every morning and not being able to go back to sleep is becoming a serious issue. This happened last summer as well, and I'm at my wits end. Please help regulate the noise pollution on Gates St!
