On a recent visit to Pickering Wharf I noticed that one of the "pickets" of the railing is missing. I noticed it as I left Victoria Station and turned left. I had my toddler with me and was already keeping him extremely close because along another section of the railing we were looking at the boats and he managed to put his head between two pickets (which means given enough time and desire he could have fit himself through). With the missing picket he could very easy climb right out and fall of the wharf. Obviously parents (including myself) need to be cautious and pay attention, but this is definitely an accident (tragedy?) waiting to happen.
Missed Street Cleaning. We cleared Andover Street of cars, as per posted signs an this morning's 8am bullhorn. Street cleaners missed Andover and Lynn Streets after cleaning Beckford and Federal. I heard that there was a car parked on River Street, and I understand why they may have skipped River, but to be clear, Andover is not River, and Andover is a 2-way street. There was nothing to preclude the cleaners from coming down Andover. The street will be clear for the remainder of the day, at your request, so we would appreciate it if you would clean it. We did try to call the City at about 12:10, but apparently City of Salem offices closed at noon today. Thank you for your help.
Concern is that sunshine paving has been parked in a residential area since Thursday the 18th. I called yesterday to let the engineers office know. They told me 7:30 Friday that stuff would be gone and to winter island. Now getting home from a long week and there is still two pieces of equipment parked where residents are suppose to. Now these machines will be parked here till Monday most likely with contractors having no work Saturday. Again I informed the engineers office of this Thursday and they told me false information and there is still equipment parked in a residential area! This is ridiculous and should have been resolved! Concerned Salem citizen!
