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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
At the intersection of Maple St and Ivy Rd the road is completely dug up leaving a giant drop in the road. At night this section of road is very dark and the only warning of this sudden drop is a homemade sign spray painted on plywood which is impossible to see in the dark. Which city official has failed to do their job And make sure the contractor has placed proper saftey signs, reflective orange, warning drivers of the sudden drop. It's about time the city officials who fail to do their jobs are terminated, this dangerous condition is absolutely unacceptable
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.
