Pudgy old man sits at Lappin Park smoking cigars and taking pictures of women. When he puts out his cigar in the butt bin, the hot ashes float through the air and land on the grass. Glasses, shaved head, white goatee. Creepy.

I was unsure where to report this. A car with NY plates, the driver opens car door and dumps trash on the street and drives away. Unfortunately this happens often. See picture taken as car was driving away.
For the past several nights a group of 3-5 homeless have taken up residence in the alleyway across from CVS on Essex Street bordering the new hotel construction. They have been arriving at 2:00 to 5:00 am each morning, yelling, arguing, swearing, screaming and littering. My family members have been awakened by them on each of the occasions. Many people live in the Condos and Apartments in this area and this is becoming a problem we need help controlling.
There is an immediate need to grease the swing that screeches all day into the evening now that children are out in the playground. I live across the street and the sound is constant causing me to keep my windows closed. I'd very much appreciate attention to this swing maintenance immediately. Thank you. Roberta Chadis
There is an abundance of blue insulation board all over Proctor and Pope Sts. that flew out of the Senior Ctr. construction area during the storm onto those streets, into the park on Mansell Parkway, onto people's properties, and along the fencing on the corner of Boston and Bridge Streets. It is everywhere and a true eyesore. It needs to be cleaned up. It is literally everywhere.
Please pass to the Salem PD: two drivers ran the red light while the crosswalk signal was lit (6:14am 1/12/17). I cross this intersection weekday mornings between 6:10-6:18 am and evenings between 5-7 pm. I see an average of 4 cars a week run the red light at this intersection. Twice between mid-November and end of December I was nearly Hit when crossing IN the crosswalk while the crossing light was ON due to drivers running the red light. This issue is getting worse. Despite the reflective clothing I wear drivers are ignoring the lights. Someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed. PLEASE do something to address this issue.
There has been a blue van parked on federal street for about 6-8 weeks. We've called the police station already and they said it would be towed, but that never happened. This van hasn't moved in months and is taking up two resident spots. It doesn't even have a resident sticker, it has a visitor pass. It's a Blue Ford Freestar Minivan, license plate 5FT747
I suggest using a smart traffic monitor at this intersection that would give more time to Rt 114 instead of School St and Orne St. Rt 114 has many times they volume of traffic whereas the side roads have very little traffic. This will alleviate the long traffic jams on both sides of Rt 114.
Salem oil and grease, there are train tracks that run along side the factory. Three years ago, after a smaller structure on the property was torn down, 21 black bags labeled "Danger Asbestos" were dumped along side the train tracks and against the fence of the Moose lodge parking lot. Some of these bags are open and can clearly see asbestos insulation inside. The bags have been there so long (despite me showing a Fire dept official who had just left the dispesary on Grove St, calls to the mayors office, board of health and the EPA) that they are wearing down and have rips and holes in them. There is a river right after where the bags were dumped, so for 3 years asbestos material has been exposed to not only those who park at The Moose, Eliot mental health services, but to the river as well. A quick google search tells me who owned the property 3 years ago and I'm sure tje city of salem can find out who tore down the third building on the salem oil and grease properry, as it was after this building was torn down the open bags of asbestos material appeared.
We have not had crosswalks leading into the park all summer due to the street repaving. It has almost a full year without crosswalks. To a PLAYGROUND. Don't get me started on the sidewalks.... but can we at least get our crosswalks back? Thanks!
