  1. Heroine needles on stillman street were not picked up, they were still there yesterday. 311 is a joke on all of us!!!

    • Maybe the City workers have a 3 needle limit. Not try to be funny but I’m tired of the “closed with status” BS.

  2. I know the City doesn’t want block traffic, but perfoming road work at night, jackhammering and backup signals. I thought there were quiet hours unless there was emergency work being done. I recall a hearing where Nancy Caruso was all over the big digs for keeping the North End up all night. It’s like Walsh was born yesterday.
