I’m beyond disgusted, fed up with our Mayor’s office giving us lip service, while nothing is done. I’m NOT going away anytime soon, this is my damn city, my damn neighborhood, and I’m not going to allow it to become nothing more than the garbage pictured! Thank you for the help in circulation
Residents of Somerville, I need you to be aware of what your neighborhood can become. This is what we as residents of Moreland St get to see as their view. This garbage is specifically at 70 Moreland St where there are still people illegally residing mind you! The owner passed away and it then became property of a bank in California. The city REFUSES to do anything more than issue tickets and citations, all of which I am sure this bank never sees. The Mayor’s office has been contacted numerous times and we’re repeatedly told their hands are tied and there is nothing that can be done. Absolutely unacceptable and disgraceful!!! We’ve had issue with rodents for years now, and with the high temperatures and humidity we’ve been facing, the sight is the least of our problems as the odor supercedes it. I have a 1 year old nephew I cannot allow outside because of this issue and it’s about time we make as big a stink as this ghastly sight has caused. Please share and alert Somerville residents what is being allowed to go on in our city!
City of Somerville’s response:
Well I’ll be damned…… lookie here lookie here!!! I submitted roughly 107 complaints within the last 24 hours to any site, newspaper, social media outlet available, you name it. City of Somerville responded with a promise to hustle and they ARE! Roughly half a dozen city workers currently here handling business! I came close to handing out hugs & cigars to this poor crew…. proof that the voices of fed up citizens is very powerful sometimes. I cannot thank the myriads of people who helped me get the recognition this issue deserved!!! THANK YOU! YOU ARE ALL ROCK STARS! I pray your cities and neighborhoods never come to this, but if it unfortunately does, I got your back smile emoticon Will post photos of the aftermath tomorrow.
