A fed-up citizen files a 311 complaint about 311 fireworks complaints:
311 closes out every fireworks case and says not to post on 311, and then puts signs all around southie, like the one pictured, to report to 311. THIS is why things never change.
The complaint was closed, with this note:
Case Noted. Thank you for contacting Boston 311. This matter needs to brought to the attention of the police when and if it's taking place. This is for non-emergency, non-crime related city service requests. 9-1-1 should always be called to report any crime, noise complaints such as loud music and/or loud parties, fireworks etc. Your case has been noted and reviewed, thank you for using the 311 app.
Other closed fireworks complaints.
The city Web site listed on the sign says:
