The meeting that took place at the Nazzaro Center on Jan.14th, 7 P. M., one of those issues was in regards to
obtaining a full liquor license.
The No. End has more than its full share of liquor licenses
and roof decks and people are still pushing these issues
down our throats.
The Ordinances that the City has put in affect are like a
joke. The Trash Violators are always the same Violators
we always had, and the Noise Ordinance is even a
bigger joke, the Police give you a warning the first time,
this is after 20 years of warnings, and then they give
you a fine. The drunks that are either young professionals
or students walking back to their apts. or condos
disrupt our sleep, and quality of life, and they only get
a slap on the hand, they are too drunk and if they talk
too loud and are having fun, that isn’t a crime. I would
have assumed this is called Disturbing the Peace.
The Police have made it clear at various meetings, the
more liquor licenses the more problems.
Would you say there is corruption involved? Absolutely,
no doubt about it. Does anyone think for one minute
that this could possibly take place outside of the Mayor’s
House? Never. The Ordinances are just another way
of smoozing the No. End Residents over. The paper
work involved for our Boston Police can run into 2 hours
for just writing up 1 person. What is the Solution?
City Hall Officials have to revise these Ordinances if they
really care about the Residents, and if they are not with
us, remember, they are against us. The greed and the
lust for money is overwhelming, and our cries are still
falling on very deaf ears. I wonder why? Money, the
Root of all Evil, no truer words were ever said.
