    Snow has not been removed by Weir Funeral Home on the Auburn St sidewalk. They know the rules and try to get away with not complying until someone complains. Please give them the fine. They are horrible neighbors to their residential neighbors with parking issues, so the least they can do is have the sidewalks cleared! Also, please speak with them for whomever they contract for snow removal as they plow snow from parking lot into Auburn St! Safety is paramount for people traveling on foot, especially the children in the neighborhood.
    Thank You!!!!

    Sidewalk on Main Street in front of New England Hair Academy routinely crowded with a large group of people not wearing masks and unwilling to make room for walkers passing by. It looks like its perhaps a spot where their students or staff to take breaks. It would be great if the academy could designate a specific space for breaks so that general public can pass by safely on the sidewalk while maintaining physical distance guidelines, especially since the people standing on the sidewalk are not wearing masks.

    I'm trying to understand the thought process here. All the way down Autumn St and throughout the entire neighborhood, trash and recycling barrels have been placed on the sidewalk by the city, reducing the width of the sidewalk to as little as 18 inches in places. There is plenty of room on the grass strip between the street and sidewalk. And almost every home has a driveway where barrels could be left. Autumn Street is just a block from the Oak Grove T Station. The neighborhood's streets are used by numerous pedestrians, including the elderly, parents pushing strollers, and the disabled, including many people who use wheelchairs and others who are visually impaired and navigate by cane and/or with the assistance of service animals. All of these people must now walk or wheel in the street. Meanwhile Autumn St. and the adjoining streets are used as a cut off of the Main and Winter intersection by drivers, many of whom speed through the neighborhood and run stop signs.

    Sidewalks are for pedestrians. If a resident placed trash barrels like this, s/he would (hopefully) be cited by the city for blocking the sidewalk. The pedestrian/disabled access situation in this city is bad enough as it is. Please don't make it worse. Do better. And set a good example for residents in the process. Thank you.

    contractors have their trucks parked on the sidewalk, portapotty is parked on the sidewalk, trucks going the wrong direction at a stop sign where pedestrians are nearly hit navigating the crosswalk, trucks are parked in the direction of oncoming traffic, and there is as police detail employed at the site to ensure people's safety. How come citizens have to write in on this site to have the police detail enforce safety procedures?

    A resident asked about why JRM is combining recycling on their trucks after requiring residents to seperate items (7850681). The city's completely unsatisfactory response was to provide a link restating that the contract requires items to be separated. Yes. We know that. That's why the resident asked. So the answer is not helpful. Please read the question. Then please answer it without talking to us like we are children. We are well aware of what the contract requires. That is the whole point. What we want to know is WHY the burden of an out-dated two-stream recycling system is being imposed on us when JRM IS COMBINING IT ALL ANYWAY. We have a right to know why JRM is requiring us to undertake this effort if they are just going to undo it. Their repeated conduct as reported time and again suggests that what they are requiring of residents is unnecessary and that it is mere busy work -- and an excuse for JRM to avoid taking items. A contract is a TWO WAY street. Residents have asked about this over and over and over again. Please stop evading and answer the question: WHY are they requiring us to do this if they are just going to combine it all into one stream? Maybe there is a good reason. If so, please let us know. Otherwise, the only logical conclusion is that the city is choosing not to enforce the terms of the contract, benefitting JRM to the detriment of residents.
  • Overgrowth Acknowledged
    18 Vernon St Malden MA 02148, United States - Malden Ward 4
    Can you have the problem property owner of 18 Vernon Street completely rip up and throw out all Overgrowth, junk, murky/muck filled barrel (bugs, smell etc) etc from white neighboring fences. The bordering Neighbors have this property's overgrowth growing through our fences. Also, a complete eyesore from neighbors upper deck view.. fence does not hide it. Maybe they can move it all to the other side of their house that is hidden. Also please notify to stay on top of the grassy patch of lawn bordering driveway that is their property to maintain (along with their back and front lawns). We are doing power washing, painting and trying to do summer projects and request this be taken care of.

    Are we not enforcing the shoveling of sidewalks this year? There seems to be no responses to any of the complaints being made.

    Just wondering if I don't have to worry about doing this at my house anymore since there seem to be no consequences.......

    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.
