NO I live down the hill from FSC the area I have lived in for over 15 years my parents for over 25 have always been cleaned every year. The brand new cleaner is nice...the other one broke down after many years of use, hence the need for a new one. Not because wong is fantastic.<quoted text>
Zimmer , you are completely wrong! Volunteers that participate in city cleanups is always welcome and appreciated. That being said, the citizens of Fitchburg have been taking care of their property better. The street cleaners did not clean the streets around the college area for years. And there are many other streets in Fitchburg that street cleaners have never gone down. The streets that everyone in Fitchburg notices gets sweeped every year are the "connected" throughout Fitchburg! Obviously Zimmer you live in a connected area!
There was over $43,000 stolen and the council didn't attempt to recover, why? The layoffs are needed! Unfortunately those who get laid off ARE COMPETENT POLICE because the union protects all the do nothing, out of shape cops and the city gets stuck with this group! Layoffs should be done by merit! Anything short of merit is inept and incompetent management!
A brand new street cleaner was purchased! The clean up after the ice storm was superior!! The parks are very nice and a lot of people utilize them! Zimmer, you need to get out more!
The area is much safer today than it was six years ago! The new police Chief is doing a great job! Constant effort needs to be made against crack dealers! The community needs to participate more. There are trends setting for more participation.
As I mentioned the neighborhood cleanup is great but don't disregard those of us whom clean Fitchburg up outside of these organized volunteer cleanups.
Our schools need to be addressed in a constructive way; money thrown at them doesn't help. We need accountability and a plan! St. Bernards is a regional leader in education! Uniforms for public schools should be mandated now!
Zimmer you need to get out of your shell and stop supporting "business as usual" and "the good ole boy network". It is time to move past the old Fitchburg; don't stay stuck in the mud!!
They are NOT adding jobs in the fpd IE: not replacing people they are letting go....that equals less police on the streets where we need them.
Clean up after ice storm are you for real it was the people that cleaned up the trees before FPW got around to it.
I agree with the community action I am part of said action every day. I do know that we need more feet and minds on the street NOT in an office chair.
The parks yes because of the Volunteers that clean them, NOT city hall. I hike every day up at flat rock and my son plays in allot of the parks. They are clean because of volunteers NOT FPW or WONG.
St. B's you are kidding me right? Uniforms...are you paying? Our schools need allot of work but allot of that stands at STATE level NOT on the towns. My son will be leaving this area for high school (bolton) thank goodness I will not have him in any High schools around here. We have allot too fix and few people who are willing to step up and help. We have to many people like yourself, Which love to stick thier heads in the sand and think everything is hokey dokey (notice spelling...) Everything is not okay the mayor is just like everyone else....please. New blood is needed the old road is used and we can no longer afford the patch jobs that make it worse. We will be like lowell soon enough...oh wait did it happen?
