  • 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.

    Now that the parks are closed to the public and the gates are locked, preventing police from patrolling there, the park is overrun with groups drinking and smoking pot, especially on the top and on the south side closest to Boston. If parks are going to be closed, please police this park so that we who live near it don’t need to smell pot all day and hear people breaking glass bottles. Thank you.

    Can anything be done to require indepentant building contractors to stop working and start to social distance? I live in an apartment building where the landlord is renovating units. The workers appear to be small independent contractors. Their continued work is a danger to me and themselves.
    I understand the need for some building trade professionals to continue to do necessary repairs but unit renovation isn't essential at this time. Thanks.

    I witnessed the driver of this vehicle take trash from their trunk and fill up these two trash cans I front of Malden High School.

    RE: Issue ID#9119169 Why is it that 75% of Clickfix requests are for missed pickups, trash all over the street or illegal dumping?? And the response is always "assigned to DPW" who go out and dutifully clean up the mess. And the response to this complaint is, "A proposal for trash totes has been submitted to the City Council"?? Just so I understand?.......The Mental Giants at City Hall have locked us into a contract with The Trash Police (JRM Disposal) who demand that we separate our trash to recycle and then dump it all into the same truck? Rummage through the trash to reject it, for whatever reason (styrofoam, plastic trash bag, etc.) to leave it there for the rat population to feed on (which is TOTALLY out of control, no wonder). Will not pick up one bulk item (per their contract) if there are two items there? Do not pick up the trash and broken bottles that they have left in the street after flinging trash into the back of the truck?
    Just so I'm straight?....We are paying JRM how much $$$$$$$ to make a mess of our city? Remove as little trash as they possibly can? AND THEN WE PAY AGAIN WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS TO HAVE THE DPW GO OUT AND CLEAN UP AFTER THEM??? The DPW would be better served attending to our streets, public spaces and parks.
    Please explain to me how "A proposal for trash totes has been submitted to the City Council" is going to solve these issues? Except cost us more tax $$$?
    Anyone out there who can enlighten me as to the relationships between JRM AND/OR the company who manufactures/distributes the $2 trash bags we, only MALDEN, are forced to buy? and now these "trash totes"? Who's the vendor for this expenditure? And to our city politicians? Follow the money?
    Please forward this to The Mayor and ALL Aldermen in the city. This is a disgrace and the residents of Malden are not being served by our elected officials. My taxes keep going up exponentially (I'm disabled and live alone) and the city is getting full of rats for our money. I've lived here for 40 years and had NEVER seen a rat until the last three years, thanks to the City's reckless and very profitable (for JRM) trash removal contract.
    Instead of "trash totes" how about using some of my tax dollars for rat baiting??
    FIX THIS PLEASE!

    The walk buttons to cross from J Malden to the T at Exchange have been broken for two days. the walk signal never comes on and the traffic light never turns red (only blinking yellow) and after dark last night it was extremely dangerous crossing. There’s also Disney on Ice shows in Boston all day every day this week and many little kids are crossing to and from the parking garages for the show without a working crosswalk light. Please fix!

    May I ask what flag was taken down to put up the LGBTQ flag?

    No disrespect meant to anyone in the LGBTQ community. I know that there was initial concern that the American Flag was taken down on Memorial Day weekend, which obviously was not the case.

    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?

    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.
