    Good afternoon, Mr.Anibal Ramos, I reside in 131-147 block of Oraton Street and we empty abandon garages across the street from my house and because they are empty people feel that it is ok to dump their garbage and bulk items there, and of course the garbage men will not pick it up because the garbage is not in front of a residence. Can you please have someone come and pick up the garbage and also clean out the garage from all the garbage that people have thrown into them.

    Thank you in advance for your help

    I am not a short sighted person, but I believe our city counsel is.

    What this city needs to do is make their neighborhoods more desirable to live in. Strongly encourage citizens to maintain and beautify their homes. Their should be an ordinance that homeowners are responsible to fix their broken and upheaved sidewalks and driveways. Their should be a crackdown on the quality of life issues that have a continued degrading affect on neighborhoods.

    And before giving $12 million dollars to a developer for a new highrise, they should repave some of the horrendous streets in our neighborhood and elsewhere around the city. You can only patch streets so much. Except for the Mt. Prospect Ave. project, I do not believe there has been any street repaving in Forest Hill for three years. That is not acceptable and is very short sighted.

    We arguably live in the best neighborhood in Newark and our church members cannot go to service without worrying about their cars being broken into. You want to build a great city? Start with building a great neighborhood and all the other elements will fall into place.

    Good afternoon, Mr.Anibal Ramos I am hoping that we can sit down and have a serious conversation about getting residential parking on Davenport Ave. we are willing to pay for it . we pay property taxes and we can’t even get a spot when we get out of work. If owners are willing to pay for the spot in front of there house why not. the city needs the money.Please help us…

    Hi Annibal! Long time. Hope you’re doing ok. I’m trying to organize a OLGC high school reunion for Saturday, June 4th. Check out the event site and please consider coming for a fun time… tell all your OLGC friends you still keep in touch with. The more come, the best night it’ll be. My sister Daisy I think was your senior prom date. She’ll be coming from South Carolina too. Would be great to catch up. Hope you can make it. Thanks for your service in the Newark community. Take care.

    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-

    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

    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.
