Nothing this city does makes any sense. Who came up with the bright idea to extend the sidewalks way out on both sides of Cottage Street directly across from the Beebe School? This serves no purpose at all other than to restrict traffic, cause problems and WASTE MONEY. The Beebe will never be able to open now as nobody will be able to get to any from the school in traffic. Thanks Melrose another disaster of an idea.
The Board of Aldermen has a subcommittee called "Public Works". Alderman John Tramontozzi is chair and Bob Boiselle vice chairman. Neither has any experience related to public works which is the case with other committee chairs and the city agencies they are supposed to oversee. It's no wonder
overrides are looked to as the cure-all.
If people followed the rules of the road they wouldn’t have had to do this. No one stopped at that stop sign (EVER). At least now traffic will be held in check and not flying all over the place.
