Fireworks at Wiget and Salem St. See the 311.

Fireworks going off at the intersection of Lewis Street and commercial what is the Mayor doing about these fireworks. One started a fire last week on top of a roof deck here in the north end is this what defending the police means. See the 311.

Another night of fireworks!!! Going on to bunker hill street from project area, hitting cars. See the 311.

Looking for Trash Barrel

 This is regarding Paul Revere Park. As you probably know, this is a popular park for people to bring their dogs. Unfortunately there are no trash receptacles in the park. This has lead to people picking up their dogs poop and leaving it on the benches. Is there any way that you could add a barrel or something down here that people can empty trash into?

311 Response: Case states this Paul Revere Park. Paul Revere Park in Charlestown is owned by the DCR. Paul Revere Mall in the North End has over 10 barrels situated in the park.

  1. The fire at the rooftop on North Street was caused by a cigarette bud actually but yeah lot’s of firework complains lately around the country. When it comes to some of these feast societies, they need to get permits whenever they do a display for now on during some of the feasts or that will be another privilege taken away.
