    Dear Councilman Ramos,

    My mother who is 94 years old has asked you several times to have the street sign of her friend Carol White put back up. I do believe that you have visited the Branch Brook Plaza a few times and she has asked you about it. So far you’ve done nothing. Please take care of this sir because you don’t want the elderly ladies talkin negative about you.

    Thank you

    Dear Councilman Ramos,

    I am writing you regarding the weekly basketball tournaments that are being held on N. 13th Street.

    Saturday night there was a shooting after the tournament was over. I read a news article that says the shooting has nothing to do with the tournament. However, I believe they are not telling the truth. The 1st tournament that was held, the DJ had to stop them from arguing. Maybe 2 weeks after that, a large crowd was going to fight, but the police were patrolling the streets and arrived on time to stop them.

    I love to see our city doing positive things for the community. I was happy to see them building the basketball court. However, having this event in this neighborhood is not a good idea. People are sitting on homeowner’s porches and cars. They sit their food and drinks on cars and leave it their. The entire block is covered with trash. The game was Saturday, it is now Monday and trash is still on the street. When are they coming to clean this mess up? This is not fair to the residence on this block. The DJ’s music is loud and the crowd is loud. We are entitled to have peace and quiet on the weekend. We’ve worked hard all week, we don’t want to hear that noise on the weekend. And this event is going to be held every Saturday. Give us a break! This event should be held at Branchbrook Park.

    Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated!


    Ms. Jones

    Dear Councilman Anibal Ramos.

    I have been living in Newark NJ for over 60 years at 163 Elwood Ave. I bought the house that I grew up in. I recently decided that it was time for me to retire. I put my six-unit apartment up for sale. Submitted

    my payment to get the building CCO and the fire department.

    I was told that the zoning department refused to approve the request. When I went down to zoning to find out why the answer was NO. I was told by Susan Brown that the last two permits taken out were for a 3-family house and a 1 family.

    I explained that I have seven electric meters that had been updated in 2004 permit 1369 and it had an approved sticker on the board. Also, there was an approved sticker from 5/11/66 permit 9467, for an upgrade.

    I went to the tax office who had the building listed as a six unit. The rent control office had it listed as a six unit. The property record office had it listed as a six. I took copies if you would like to review.

    My house has been inspected every 5 years by the NJ State department of community affairs. Susan Brown told me that all this paper work did not mean anything. When I ask her what paper work was needed she said 3 stories 3 family. I never got an answer to my question of what paper work was needed.

    Can your office help? I would like to come in and show you all the paper work.

    We have lived in Newark nj all our lives and we purchased our home in 2003. never had any real issues until now. There is an auto repair shop at 512 roseville avenue newark that just moved in and are wreaking havoc on our residential area. They roll joints and smoke weed during daylight hours. They have cars parked everywhere and even on the sidewalk illegally while our children walk to and from school. They also park a trailer that they use as a food truck which sells illegal liquor and probably do not have a license to operate. They have tables setup and blast music all night even on Sundays and play dominos and drink in the middle of the sidewalk. They are parked at the corner of first avenue and roseville. Just steps away from the precinct that just opened and they do not respond. Our quality of life has gone down and we are thinking of moving. Please do something about this blight in our neighborhood. We need help asap please. I am afraid for my daughters as they walk through this mess.

    Whatever profit the city may have derived for allowing the Sopranos “prequel” to be filmed here was offset by the intangible cost of having public attention drawn once again to the 1967 rebellion. Many people living just a few miles away think of “the riots” whenever they hear the name “Newark.” The broadcasting of “Saints of Newark” will reinforce that association, which has been impeding the Newark Renaissance for 52 years.

    I’m having issues with water department. I submitted water for pickup in October/November and waited the 30 days indicated and started to reach out for results only to find out last month that another sample is needed. No reason was given. I called to request pickup forMay 2 and the water has been sitting on my porch as was requested for 10 days and counting. I have a 2 year old son and I understand lead can affect young children the most. Please help us.

    Good afternoon. My name is Dr. Nancy Shaw. I represent the Newark Community Healthy Pet Clinic. We have been providing no cost preventive veterinary services in Newark and are looking for a new space to hold our clinics. I recently visited the Vince Lombardi Community Center and think it would be a great place to hold our once monthly Sunday clinics. It takes us about a month and a half to get things up and running again. We were looking at March 3rd, but understand the site might not be available. Could you let me know if you would be interested in our providing these services to qualified members of your community?

    Dear Councilman Ramos,

    On Wednesday evening, October 10th, we invite to come and greet the community as we host the fourth of five of our Ward based community feedback forums as we continue to build support for our Civilian Complaint Review Board.

    Our meeting for the North Ward will take place at the Lombardi Center, 201 Bloomfield Avenue. from 6 to 8pm.

    We want you to remind the community that we, the people of the City of Newark, created our new Board through an ordinance that was unanimously passed by our City Council in 2016, and that our continued unity is important as the fight for the Board continues in the Courts.

    I can be reached at 973 202 0745

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello, my husband and I have called your office on numerous occasions asking to please be called back to discuss an urgent matter, and we have been told the message would be passed along and we could expect to hear from you in the next few days; maybe this is a better route. I live next to an abandoned house which, to our understanding was bought and supposedly going to be fixed/ torn down and now it has been 1 year 1/2 & these these people have not only done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, they don’t even keep up with the maintenance. The grass is so high & spills into the street. You can’t even walk on the sidewalk or SEE oncoming traffic or pedestrians. The worst part is the traffic of drug addicts & prostitutes that hop over the gate & do their business in there, DAILYEVERY FEW MINUTES. I can’t enjoy taking my kids to my own backyard because on too many occasions I’ll be met with someone shooting up drugs, taking a piss or engaging in sexual activities . This house has caught on fire more than once in the past and I’m very afraid of it happening again and we end up losing OUR home since it is so close and the amount of garbage and forage is hazardous. We have called city hall, code regulation people, your office…no one knows anything. Supposedly their was a notice on the door saying they had a certain time frame to do something with the house or the city would tear it down…that was months ago and the house is still there..GETTING WORSE. I don’t know if this is in your power to be able to help or get something done but this needs to be fixed. The new owners need to be held responsible asap. This house should have been torn down YEARS AGO. It is putting a lot of people in danger. Anyone can get dragged in there, beaten, robbed, raped and you can’t see if someone IS hiding waiting to jump out at you. And I don’t want to hear "call the cops when you see activity " Newark cops don’t give a damn about these kinds of problems. My street is riddled with prostitutes/dealers/users and EVERYONE knows it and cops will come up and down broadway worrying about double parked cars rather than actual crime. Someone needs to TAKE CARE OF THIS. Many people on this block have called different places trying to get this situation fixed. Don’t wait until this ends up on the news because of a tragedy.

    Mr. Ramos, I would like to bring to your attention to the situation with the collection of recyclables in Heller Parkway between Mt. Prospect and Woodside and adjacent streets. The collection has not happened in the last two weeks. I did call the Sanitation Dept. and their answer was that they are working on new contracts but it does not make sense. I do not see other streets with this problem, especially in Forests Hills. Please address this issue as this makes our neighborhood unsightly and attracts vermin.

    Thank you.

    There are major potholes on Christopher Lane in Newark DE. They just made Margaret street one way, so they are forcing more people to use Christopher Lane to exit from the Creek View Road area and these potholes are very large in size. These have been there for over 7 months and are getting bigger. We need these fixed as more traffic will be using this road.

    Wow. The potholes in front of 61 Victoria (6th) avenue are making buildings shake when trucks or buses roll into them. THey are 3 inches and more deep in places. You can see the bricks that once were the avenue. SOMETHING has to be done.

    It sounds like an explosion everytime even a car goes into and out of these series of potholes.

    Someone on a motorcycle or a bike in the dark can get SERIOUSLY INJURED. At this point it is a public health issue.
