Sick and tired of the worst part of my commute home is when I enter my own home town. The roads are a joke. Other abutting towns are all upgrading and we can't keep our roads paved. Not leaving a number to contact me. Take a ride yourself and bring a hot coffee with no cover on it when you do.
I have complained about this before and we had a cruiser one day stop people. One day just doesn't do it. As a resident of this city I expect more. School is bnb in session and kids are everywhere and we still have cars flying down the street with not as much as slowing down at the stop sign. Can I buy my own speed bump and put it in the street? At least this way I can ensure the safety of the children in this neighborhood since our city doesn't care.
For the past 6 hours (first heard it when I got home from work at 7pm and it’s now 1am), something has beeped very loudly every 60 seconds. I live on Linden Ave and it seems to be coming from somewhere near the YMCA. It sounds like the beeping when your fire alarm battery needs to be changed, but it is loud enough to be heard several streets over (inside with the windows open). I walked up the street but I could not find the source and I don’t know what to do. It’s very annoying.
FOREST STREET IS AN ABOMINATION! Too many potholes to count. Seriously. Three open threads on this site regarding it's condition and all assigned to DPW but no progress has been made. Multiple votes which mean others agree and are as disgusted as I am. The street is practically impassible. Please stop telling us to be patient and please stop telling us that the DPW is addressing the potholes. The entire length of the street needs PROPER repair. Filling holes with loose asphalt and rocks is NOT a solution. Placing orange barrels over holes is NOT a solution. These areas need to be dug out and patched properly. Perhaps Councillor Murphy can assist? She is a resident of Forest Street. Please City of Malden.... help us.
I have lived on Fairfield for 20 years and yes I pay taxes which have gone up significantly. This street has been patchworked for so long that it is difficult to drive. This whole street should be dug up and given a coat of asphalt from top to bottom and made smooth. Its been long enough and it should be done. Since my taxes have gone up this should be a priority not only for me but all the neighbors who live here and who feel the same way
Why is it we aren’t able to comment on issues anymore? Some citizens were bringing up some great points and suddenly the comments were shut down. This isn’t a very good way for the city to treat people. I can’t say I’m surprised. Typical Massachusetts politics. I give the city a F for this.
I am waiting for my plumber to arrive to fix my toilet that broke when the rust came rushing through when you flushed the hydrants in ward 7 on Sunday. Can I look to the City for reimbursement of this bill. Also in order to clear the rust it was necessary for me to run the water non-stop for close to two hours. Can I look to the City for an adjustment on my water bill for this. Look forward to your response.
Last evening walking back from the Malden T station along Florence Street, I found that the sidewalks were treacherous. I, and most other pedestrians, walked on the street. (The same has been true in past years.) Some of the unshoveled location is city property (bridge near the Y), other property is the zip car parking lot on Florence and several private homeowners. This is a well travelled pedestrian route that should have a high priority, in my opinion. Thanks.
This has been posted multiple times in the recent past and the issue appears to be persisting. There is an individual residing at 104 Autumn Street driving motorcycles with altered mufflers that wake up the whole neighborhood at all hours of the night (last night it was around 1 AM). The motorcycles are plate # 1R 3242 and 2F 1948. Lieutenant Fortier in the Traffic Department of the Malden Police has been contacted and this problem continues. Can something please be done? This is badly damaging quality of life in the area.
There is trash all over Bell Rock park, and it continues to accumulate because the city removed the trash bins and never replaced them. Every other public park seems to have trash bins for people's litter so why is this park an exception? The trash is blowing into neighboring yards during windy/rainy days. Please replace the trash bins and perhaps add a recycling bin - Malden forces its residents to use special trash bags to support its recycling program yet doesn't have a recycling bin in a highly visited public park?
