  • 96 Loring Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem

    A hole-cover marked "WATER" in the street between 92 and 96 Loring Ave, Salem MA makes a loud clicking noise when car tires pass over it.

    I originally opened issue 7005812 on 11/21/19 to deal with the same cover noise issue (at the same location). Today I see that issue 7005812 was archived and closed on 1/8/20 without any explanation - just that it was resolved. How was it resolved? The noise issue was never fixed, or it was fixed but the fix did not silence the water cover. The water cover is still loudly clanging away when a car drives over it.

    On 1/6/20, to get a better idea of the time estimate for fixing the issue, I called the Salem Public Works. I was told that they would get to it, but they had a huge backlog of work and it would take some time. So I waited.

    Maybe the Salem Public Works is very backlogged and is being responsible and intending to get to this issue when they can. If that's the case, why was issue 7005812 archived? Shouldn't it remain open until the issue is resolved, by which I interpret to mean fixed? At least, if you close or archive this issue, please state your reason for doing so. I and my neighbors are still waiting for a fix to this issue. It has now been over 2 1/2 months

  • North Shore Medical Center Salem Hospital 81 Highland Ave, Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    The workers working on the back side of the hospital are not wearing masks nor are they working 6 feet apart as recommended. Yesterday there were 8-10 workers and only 2 had masks on; two workers were standing close together talking with no masks; another working was leaning on another's shoulder laughing and talking with no masks.
