    The whole side of Beebe school in pleasant St including the bus drop off an pick up area is covered in snow an ice as if it was never touched. Very unsafe for students and staff. Maybe nobody realized but they did not call school off these areas should be cleaned if school is in session
  • 86 Adams St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 2

    I received a ticket for parking in a street sweeping zone. Ticket was issued on the morning of 9/24/2019 at 86 Adams Street. I appealed the ticket and won - the ticket here is not my issue.

    My issue here is that there is inconsistent information regarding street sweeping on Adams Street in particular, but I fear this may be a more prevalent problem throughout the city. I want to know how to properly avoid tickets in the future.

    According to Malden's list of street sweeping rules (https://www.cityofmalden.org/262/Street-Sweeping) Adams Street, during the time in which I was ticketed, has no street sweeping rules. The rules for which my ticket was applied was the "Fellsway to Highland" rule linked in the image. I was parked between Highland and Pearl Street. Malden's website contains NO street sweeping rules for Adams Street between Highland and Pearl. You can see this via my image and the entire list in the website link above.

    Additionally, when I received notice that my appeal had been accepted, I also received a printed out list of the street sweeping rules. Awesome, I thought, except according to that list (which appears to be printed straight off the website I linked) I did not break ANY rules when parking on Adams Street.

    Now, all of that said, if I enter the address 86 Adams Street into the street sweeping "app" linked on Malden's website (https://www.cityofmalden.org/232/Street-Alerts), 86 Adams DOES have street sweeping rules. These rules are not confirmed on the main street sweeping page OR on the orange sheet I received with my appeal decision.

    The fourth, final, and in my opinion the most important lack of information here falls on signage - there are NO signs on Adams Street between Highland and Pearl that indicate there are street sweeping rules, which seems to coincide with what the main website and the printed orange sheet I received say.

    According to all of this information, I would assume that parking on Adams Street, between Highland and Pearl, on any day of the week and at any time would be completely legal. Any ticket received for street sweeping on this portion of the road is null and void, and not legitimate.

    City of Malden, what say you?

    The street light in front of Boston Family Dental was previously reported to be on a steady, rapid blink. The light was reported to have been fixed just before Christmas, but now the light doesn't work at all. Hasn't been working for a while. Could someone check it out?

    The crosswalk is hardly noticeable as the markings are mostly worn off.
  • 32 Quincy St Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 2
    What is City procedure or policy for weeds growing between the sidewalk and the curb? This house has over 100 feed of weeds between one and two feet high. Will the weeds eventually push apart the curb and sidewalk? Does the City eventually spray or pull the weeds at least once per season, or is that the obligation of the homeowner or does this issue fall through the cracks.

    The sidewalk contractor poured the concrete without curb stone on Saturday, October 19, 2019. The sidewalk panels sat 2 to 3 inches below the driveway. The job was not done in professional manner.

    This is probably not handled by public works, but I noticed the brick building on the corner of Pearl and Medford St, the wall on the Medford St side looks like it is about to crumble onto the sidewalk. It looks like a safety issue.

    Just got a flat tire in the rain. Big sinkhole on Medford Street it needs to be fixed. My car just got towed and I’m having an awful day. Is there a way I can claim this? The guy in charge of the dpw won’t help so someone else please help.
