Come on Somerville Salvation Army, you guys are better than this! This is the scene on Memorial Day 2020 at 10:00am Monday morning in front of that Salvation Army building that’s located on Somerville’s main roadway at 487 Broadway in Somerville.
Motorist commuting through our city to and from Arlington, Cambridge, Medford and other surrounding cities and towns get the pleasure of looking at this horrific sight and judging and rating on how we look amongst other municipalities. Even more important our own‘s Somerville residents have to look at this crap.
The city can’t be fast enough to tag Somerville residents for their garbage cans being uncovered or a garage bag that a raccoon or a big Somerville rat got to feast on making a mess, but how do they overlook something as obvious as this eyesore? Do you mean to tell me that our mayor, DPW Commissioner nor any and all of our city Council members haven’t driven by this dump in the past day, week, month or so and/or noticed nor even bothered reporting it? Maybe our elected officials just don’t give a crap because it’s not election time yet and their not worried about it? Please give me a break!
