  • 9 1/2 Lemon St Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Hello, There us a utility pole MECO 3082 between 9 and 9 1/2 Lemon st that has been leaning. The leaning is getting worse and has now pulled the tension line that connects the power off of my house. The line is only holding on by the electrical connection. I have reached out to Nat Grid several time to address this over several weeks and have not had a resolution. Im worried that at some point the power line will disconnect and create a dangerous situation. Please let me know if the city can help me address this. Thanks

    Can Salem look at the viability of partnering with say with Peabody to reduce our electric bills. National Grid along with the department of public utilities has allowed them to fee the cash away from us. The charge us to be a customer then charge massive transmission fees and “renewable” energy charge which I should be able to choose to pay or not, but then we still need to pay the electric supply that’s already $100 for low to medium usage. We let National Grid control the market here. One city over (Peabody) pays 1/4 for their electric bill, because they own their infrastructure. Why can’t we partner up with Peabody to cogenerate by building a gas turbine generator out say behind DPW where it is already industrial with a grant etc. We pay a lot in taxes and we deserve to live with lower energy bills.

    Thank you

  • Ravenna Ave & Highland Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem

    The Ravenna Ave / Highland Ave light cycle is causing major backups along Highland Ave.

    Ravenna Ave appears to have a sensor plate that changes the light, however, from there, a LONG timer is used to give the green light back to Highland Ave.

    This timer runs a minute or longer even if only one car is exiting Ravenna Ave.

    Why is this so poorly implemented? Can't the sensor plate be used to see if traffic from Ravenna is continuing? And/or can't the timer be reduced to something normal? 10 or 15 seconds?

    The three young men aged 16 or 17 reported over the weekend as fornicating in public view on Peabody St are now doing so in a side ally on Ward Street. No problem if they’re into guys but they need to get a room!

  • Salem Common 30 Washington Sq N, Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    With so many people walking around the Salem Common, wouldn't it make sense to have arrows painted to that people will only walk in one direction for safety reasons? Or some sort of method to keep a uniform pattern?

    Old wicker chair dumped on sidewalk for weeks...also overgrown bushes make the sidewalk impassable to pedestrians. I have almost been hit twice—this is a safety hazard...
