Over the last few days, concerned citizens have filed 311 complaints about fireworks at Castle Island in South Boston, Charlestown High (where they burned the turf) and the Bremen Street Park and the McKay School area in East Boston.
And that doesn't even include the giant explosions, roaring cars and eardrum-busting music from the area of the American Legion strip mall (the one with the Popeyes, not the one with the Stop & Shop) that Roslindale residents self reported to each other on their Facebook and Nextdoor groups shortly after midnight today; perhaps they were too exhausted to also complain to 311.
One outraged citizen filed a more generalized complaint demanding to know what the city plans to do to tamp down a recurrence of last year's pandemicpalooza of nightly fireworks, like, whatever happened to that task force the mayor back then set up to deal with the issue?
PLEASE start addressing the illegal fireworks and loud music in our communities. Please have a realistic plan on how the city of Boston is going to handle this quality of life issue. This nuisance has ALREADY begun and it is not even summer yet. Thank you.
