    N 10th St between 3rd Ave and Bloomfield Ave has not been plowed or salted yet. It is Tuesday night. Myself and neighbors have called sanitation 16 times for a request. Your city hall office voice mail is full. Where is the help?

    I am furious! I missed two days of work because nobody came out to plow the snow from my street. I live on triton terrace, north newark which is on a dead end street. It’s sad that hard working people like myself have to go through this when we are struggling already to make ends meet. Please, send somebody to come plow the snow from my block so that myself and others can go back to work and so we can go on with our lives. Thank you! Councilman Animal Ramos Jr…..

    Okay Councilman Ramos Jr.

    Although you are not my councilman, but since you want to know “How was the City’s response to the 2016 blizzard?” It is HORRIBLE!!!!!!! As I write, nothing has been plowed, our streets are still filled with snow (Woodbine Avenue, Manor Drive, Mt. Vernon Place, Tuxedo Parkway, Normand Road…). My husband has to walk to Irvington/South Orange tonight because he cannot move his car from our driveway. Why? Because he risk getting stuck!!!

    I have tweeted the Deputy Mayor and the Mayor, some 22 hours ago, still NOTHING!!!!!!

    In the 29 years I have resided in Newark, this has never happened; and yes I get the magnitude of the storm, but what I don’t get is the lack of plows/equipment, given the fact that this was declared a “State of Emergency”, why haven’t the State assisted us; why haven’t the State cleared the “State-Run” schools, so that our children are not sitting at home; why are we still stuck at home? This is ridiculous. Are we supposed to be writing the State? Who the graham cracker are we supposed to be writing, because I am passed annoyed.

    Metro Hydraulic Jack Co. located on 1271 McCarter Highway, we need the street of Mt Pleasant Avenue to be plowed. I am an employee there and I can’t drive my car down the street. Looks like it was never plowed. I need to get to work so that I can pay my bills.

    Highland Ave in the Forest hills section along with the side streets have not been plowed. Last night some trucks passed by without evening lowering the plows. There are families that can even get out of their driveways due to the accumulated snow on the streets. This is truly a reflection on the poor leadership of our city. One drive from these trucks commented that the streets were to snowed in and that he wasn’t going to bother lowering the plows. Way to go Newark officials, paying contractors that suck up the money and don’t do what’s supposed to be done. Extremely sad. Let’s go Anibal, do you job-

    When the heck are they going to plow north 11th st. You guys talk talk talk. But never do what you say. You are all the reasons I never ever will vote for. And I spread the word not to vote. Because of all the lies you all talk. Mayor and all that work for him. Blah. Blah. Blah.

    North 7th Street and side roads leading to First Avenue school have not been plowed. North 8th Street (CVS & St. Francis Xavier Church) road is not passable, nearly room for 1 car to get through.

    Councilman Ramos

    I am requesting advice on how to best resolve this issue of tree roots lifting the sidewalk in front of 412 Clifton Ave.


    Parents and their children use these sidewalks daily to access the daycare across the street. I have contacted the sanitation department via email and phone, and to this date have not received a response. It has been 2 years of this

    I left a message but did not post it publically, I hope that doesn’t mean I won’t get a response to my urgent problem concerning my sick daughter and the inept practices of the Department Human Setvices on Rector Street.

    Hello Councilman Ramos,


    I live on the corner of Heller Parkway and Parker Street. There are two trees on the curb (city property) that are overgrown with their branches now pressing up against my house. I’m concerned for my roof. Can you get these trees trimmed back? Thanks for your as help in this matter.


    Best,

    Hello,

    I live on Degraw Avenue and since the route on Verona was changed to a one way street ( due to cars crashing into a home there) my street has become extremely busy. The average car speed between Grafton to Heller is between 38 – 42 mph. In a 25 mile an hour zone. We have those white slow lines in our street, but alas they are of no use at slowing traffic. There are 15 children who live on this stretch of Degraw Avenue.

    Could you possibly see if it’s in the budget to have at least 2 speed bumps installed. You know the kind where they build up the asphalt.

    I’m afraid that one of these children are going to get hurt.

    It would be wonderful if it could be done soon as the children are out of school now and the traffic is very heavy.

    Thank you for your time,

    Sincerely,


    CHRISTINE RIVERA

    760 DEGRAW AVENUE

    This is to thank the Councilman for attending the closing “party” of the Artfront Galleries show at the Waterfront Rec Center on Grafton Ave. His support gives us the credibility we need to produce pop up, not for profit gallery space in all of Newark’s neighborhoods. Special thanks to Sam Gonzalez for his assistance. We look forward to working with the councilman and with the Recreation Center to make Newark an “art destination” at the level of Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. The talent is here in Newark; we need walls and space to make it accessible.

    Hello Mr.Ramos

    I am a parent who lives on n 10 th st I son has a basketball court out on the st where all the neighborhood kids play . They do not bother no one they play they do not cause any problems. And today Newark police came to try to take there court away . And give me a 500.00 fine for being the owner of they court he called for back up 6 cop cars came 12 police officer were there . Now my thing is that the kids are not doing anything wrong. Staying off the street corners . They have no place to go and play as parents what are we to about this we pay our taxes . There is more crime being done in Newark for them to be out here harassing the kids like they are doing something wrong I drive in the streets of Newark and see basketball courts in the streets all over so why is it a problem for them to have one .

    I want immediate action taken on the abandoned property next to my house. The house now has squatters and is dangerous. I have already contactedcontacted the Essex County director and will now contact Senator Booker. It is a disgrace that Newark seems to feel we in Newark should accept this deplorable situation for ourselves and our families.

    For the month of May, Artfront Galleries, a not for profit visual arts group, will be doing an exhibition of local and regional artists work at the Waterfront Rec center on Grafton.

    We hope to hold a small “opening” celebration on the first Friday and hope that you and or your staff will turn out in support of the Arts and the Rec Center. On Monday, I will be dropping a small package of promotional material at your Mt Prospect St office.
