  • 138 Pleasant St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4

    The rear elevator at the apartments at 138 Pleasant St is concerning. When entering or exiting the elevator, you can feel it struggle to maintain its level with the floor. The elevator will move slightly with the door open and will sometimes bounce up and down. Aside from this, it is frequently out of service and does not appear to be competently repaired.

    If the city provides such a service, I'd like for the elevator to be inspected to ensure its safety.

    Thank you.

  • Public Park Archived
    9–73 Leonard St Malden MA 02148, United States - Malden Ward 4
    As a neighbor of Waitt’s Mountain Park, I am distressed that the police are tasked to chase friendly, polite people out of the park at 8:00 pm... the coolest time of the day, and best time to go for a walk. The police are just following orders and responding to people who complain about others using this public space, and have been respectful (and almost embarrassed) that they have to kick people out, so I don’t blame them. However, I do object to people being asked to leave a public park for no good reason other than some neighbors complaining. So, in order to counter that, I am complaining. Personally I find the park much nicer later in the day, and it delights me to see it full of friendly, active people... all keeping a safe distance. It feels safer and more welcoming. In this time of turmoil, is this how we want to spend our tax dollars? Deploying police to chase families, climbers, dog walkers and young couples out of a public park? Seems silly to me.

    Not acceptable

    Is mask use optional for the fire department? Very appreciative of the hard work, but it is kind of surprising and disappointing to see firefighters responding to calls and interacting with the public without them.

    Does the city have a social media/First Amendment policy relative to archiving of SCF posts? Archiving, as opposed to just closing, makes the post unviewable. My concern is that there is no objective rhyme or reason to what messages are archived or when. Some messages remain up for years. Others last a day. Archiving seems to happen by whim to posts expressing certain viewpoints, or from certain people, and not others. The problem is that a government official selectively making certain posts unviewable, while leaving others up, is about as clear an example of an actionable First Amendment violation as you can get. A governmental entity, like the City of Malden simply cannot do that. The reason I'm saying this is that as a taxpayer, I'd rather not have to see us incur legal fees and the possible cost of a judgement or settlement. I also value and respect the First Amendment, which is in fact being violated, even if that isn't the intent. There MUST be an objective policy/standard. Otherwise, you simply may not archive posts. Compliance with the First Amendment literally requires it. Please address this before a judge has to do it for us. The practice may also violate the MA public records access law. But that is another discussion. Thank you.

    How many people have to get hit by cars here? It seems to happen monthly, can you fix the lights and make a real cross walk signals?
  • Flag Archived
    77 Salem St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4

    The flag to the right of the American Flag, is that the POW/MIA flag? Is that what was removed, prior to Memorial Day, to raise the LGBTQ flag?

    Again, no disrespect meant to anyone in the community.

  • Cemetery Archived
    20-98 Dana St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4
    Upkeep of cemetery is a disgrace. View from the bike path shows a number of dead trees, large amount of leaves that were never raked/picked up in the fall, there is a hole that is held closed by one piece of wire where people undo the wire and let their dogs run/go to the bathroom through this location, tipped headstones, looks like at least one headstone has spray paint on it, trash is blowing around grounds, etc. It is really befuddling that we have a person in charge of cemetery upkeep but this location is always in terrible shape. Fire this guy, give the money to a landscaping company or the dpw and have somebody who cares take care of this location.

    I truly can’t believe the response posted earlier to this ClickFix! We are in a HOT SPOT with COVID cases rising daily and a positivity rate closing in on 9%! What an absolutely ABSURD answer - “parking restrictions will be eased to allow for VISITORS” ??!!!! Why is Malden NOT supporting Governor Baker?!!! The last thing we should be doing is assisting residents by easing parking restrictions! NO ONE SHOULD HAVE VISITORS!!! We should ONLY be celebrating tonight with members of OUR OWN HOUSEHOLD!!

    I’m sorry, but, this is the ABSOLUTE WRONG MESSAGE to send out to Maldonians! Until all are vaccinated, COVID case levels come down (WAY DOWN), and we are told by reputable sources that things are somewhat safe WE CANNOT LET OUR GUARD DOWN! I certainly don’t like it either and would love to have company and celebrate, but, it is just the WRONG THING TO DO right now!

    Someone from the city should have called with a New Year greeting well in advance of New Year’s Eve and should have stressed the importance of NOT having visitors this evening! It’s not what we want, but, until things get better we truly have no choice!

    Be safe. Stay well. Happy New Year to all!

    The common areas/ hallway of my building haven't been swept or sanitized for months.

    The landlords are neglecting the management of the building and only respond when there's a complaint.

    I live on the top floor and am exposed to all the filth that is spilled and dropped on the floors and stairs. When the custodian does show up, he "spot treats" the stains that are visible instead of sweeping/mopping ALL the floors and stairs. There's stains from foot traffic and a massive amount of dust buildup on the stairs AND between the banisters because they're not being cleaned properly on a regularly basis. Next, he'll spray aerosol in the air so the hallway "smells" clean. This usually takes him (5-10) mins max and then he's out!

    The grounds around the building need to be maintained: Debris needs to be picked up, grass and bushes need to be cut and the mulch refreshed.

    Also, tenants are throwing their garbage bags over the fire escape banister instead of placing it in the dumpster.

    I have attached photos.

    Thank you.
