    Windsor at Oak Grove apartment building company plows their snow and piles it up on the sidewalk and on the street every single winter when there is snow. The snow then just stays there for months until it melts in the spring. I am surprised no one has taken action to stop this practice. lt is dangerous and unacceptable. Please do something about it.

    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.

    Hostile architecture on public benches. Center bar should be removed. (It's not an armrest.)

    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?
  • 556 Main Street Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • 350 Main St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 4
    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.

    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!

    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.
