When is the so-called Mayor ever going to give a straight-forward, honest answer to a question?

Re: Ask the Mayor!

So to let you all know the field at the High School is closed all others fields here are ??? because of Coronavirus.Thank you Mayor Paul Brodeur are safety comes first

Re: Ask the Mayor!

How are closed fields supposed to increase safety.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Please explain how people working out in a field or public park or beach is unsafe. What is unsafe is closing fields and parks causing masses to gather in places that are open. Did anyone happen to see the crowd at Breakheart this weekend?

Come on Rose, l’m waiting. Please explain how closing a field increases the public safety

Re: Ask the Mayor!

The crowds at Breakheart are because of all the girls parading around in those disgraceful stretch pants. They’re sinful I tell you!

Re: Ask the Mayor!

It's unsafe if even a few aren't maintaining social distancing, which some of them weren't dear. It's the 5% rule - 5% of people ruin everything for the other 95%. Breakheart is run by the state, as you well know dear.

This is about time it something that none of us been through .Yes employment checks don:t cut it.Life changes Go from working everday to no work.Not easy on anybody.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Can someone explain to me why my post was deleted? I guess this message board doesn’t want to have an open dialog. I have heard about this problem previously here. Oh well, I guess I’ll be moving on.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Just another player.Just a bunch phonies.Talks to help you understand what:s really going on in the world about coronavirus virus.This is not test about life.You all need to wake up.This is Melrose.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

What???? WTF are you talking about? Unbelievable.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Question for Mayor Brodeur: What are you going to do about the terrible conditions of the roads in Melrose. I bent a rim on my truck this past week and want to know where I can submit for reimbursement of my damages from the City. What the hell is going on with these roads?

Re: Ask the Mayor!

When you woke up this morning, if you're like me, you thought about your kids right off the bat. Where are they, are they safe, are they feeling loved, and what can I do to help them.
For my kids:
-They're at home.I shower them with love and kisses everyday
But what can I do to help them? As a parent, what can I do to ensure my child's success and safety in Melrose? What do they NEED from me?

Re: Ask the Mayor!

To get through the stuck-at-home days of the coronavirus pandemic, Americans have spent significantly more time than usual in front of the TV, gorging on streaming shows, news programs, old sitcoms and video games.

This is the same dumb poem you write and post multiple times in the same thread. No one responds because it is uninteresting and half-jibberish.

Clean it up and get a different slant.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Sorry about your rim John, our road repair equipment was in Lynnfield that day,but you knew that already,you rascal!!!

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Why didn’t we enact stay at home policies and wear face masks in 2017-2018 when there were 70,000 flu deaths in the United States?

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Apples and oranges, but you know that, just looking for someone like me to call you a koolaid drinking buffoon. But I’m not gonna do it!

Re: Ask the Mayor!

The welfare of humanity is ALWAYS the alibi of tyrants.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Exactly. Did you know the average age of death from covid-19 in MA is 82. That’s incredible considering the average life expectancy is 80.

98 % of these folks had underlying causes.

It is absurd that we’re destroying the economy and countless lives by blindly following these dimwits.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Those numbers are crap Mel, of course, which means we probably know what buffoon you're getting them from!

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Golf is back in Massachusetts, but only under strict conditions.

Golf courses in Massachusetts can open, effective immediately

Gov. Charlie Baker’s administration updated its emergency rules Thursday to allow golfers to return to the links during the coronavirus outbreak, as the state begins easing certain nonessential services.

The experience won’t be like the typical 18 holes.

According to the state’s website, golf courses are still prohibited from having any employees present, besides staff for security purposes. Payments must be taken online or over the phone. And club facilities, from pro shops to restaurants, are required to remain closed. Tee times will also have to be spaced out by 15 minutes, and groups will be limited to four players, among other social distancing measures on the course — which the security personnel will enforce.

While staff are required to wear a face covering, the rules do not mention masks for players. However, Baker’s statewide order requiring people to wear face coverings in public whenever they can’t maintain six feet of distance from others took effect Wednesday.

The new guidelines come after Massachusetts became the only state in the country on Wednesday that hadn’t moved to allow golf courses to reopen — and some local course owners were beginning to get restless. Baker noted Thursday that Massachusetts has been working to coordinate its general reopening plans with other northeastern states.

“We basically took a model that was being used in several of the states around us … and applied it,” he said.

Read the updated guidelines, which took effect immediately, below:

Are golf courses considered essential? NO

Golf courses are not essential businesses and cannot have employees working on-premise. Notwithstanding this restriction, essential services, such as groundskeeping to avoid hazardous conditions and security, provided by employees, contractors, or vendors are permitted.
Private operators of golf courses may permit individuals access to the property so long as there are no gatherings of any kind, appropriate social distancing of six feet between individuals is strictly followed, and the business operator and golfers abide by the specific guidelines for golf courses outlined below.
Municipalities may decide to open municipal courses under these guidelines, if they so choose.
The specific guidelines for golf courses are:
Security personnel can be delineated by each club (ex. a pro and the head starter) and will be present to enforce social distancing. There can be no other employees working at the recreational component of the golf operation.
All staff must wear face coverings while on the property
Club facilities including but not limited to the club house, pro shop, restaurant, bag room and locker room must remain closed
No caddies allowed
No golf carts allowed
Push carts may be used. Players must either carry their own bag or use a push cart
All golfers must maintain proper social distancing of at least 6 feet at all times
Groups of players are restricted to no more than 4 players at one time.
Members-only clubs can allow guests as determined by the security personnel on the golf course
Private clubs that allow non-members to make reservations can do so at their discretion
Maintenance personnel are permitted to work on the golf course
Tee Time Policy must be 15 minutes between groups
Golfers must stay in their car until 15 minutes before their tee time and must return to their car immediately following play
Online and remote payment options must be utilized
All golfers must use their own golf clubs. Sharing golf clubs or rental golf clubs is not allowed.
Flag sticks must remain in the hole. Hole liners must be raised so picking a ball out of the hole doesn’t occur
Bunker rakes must be removed, and ball washers must be removed or covered.
Practice putting green, driving range, and chipping areas must be closed.
Facilities must have readily accessible hand sanitizer.

For more information, the United States Golf Association has issued guidance on how these sort of restrictions may affect playing rules and scoring

It’s Mother’s Day, which is a great time to remember that moms don’t have to be martyrs.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

When you’re out socially distanced, wear a mask,And when you get behind the wheel, slow down.

Re: Ask the Mayor!

Social Distancing and When you’re out socially distanced, wear a mask,And when you get behind the wheel, slow down.Maybe you get lucky you will have to pay a fine for speeding.Yes you. This is Melrose Mass 02176.Speeding fine with a surcharge on your car insurance company will notify you and the Merit Rating Board MRB if you are ...is involved in an accident subject to surcharge if the Accident.I thought through Melrose citywide speed limit changed to 25 mph in Melrose.think having the speed limit enfoced on our street would make all feel safe.At some point the question here is how are you going to send a signal to people driving through the community that we want them to slow down.I get the feeling there are quite a few of us and We"re all kind of unified in wanting to have a little bit safer experience in waking our kids around and riding our bikes and doing all the things that people that live her in Melrose environment want to do.Citywide speed limit changed to 25 mph in MELROSE.
