    Been following this with interest.  Please keep us updated on how things go.  You have my sympathies for whatever that's worth.

    The city seems to be having difficulties even mailing me my bills.

    Its far worse than the story says.  The other apartment in the house he is now living in is also the residence of a 14-15 year old girl.  The house next door has 5 children living in it.  Some idiot p more »

    The Medford program is better all around. If nothing else, just the way that the city was upfront about what they were doing, communicated with the residents, and found a solution that didn't sneakily more »

    Count yourselves lucky you didn't get a PAYT program shoved down your throats like Malden did.  Comparatively, there was 10 times more outreach and community input opportunity in the Medford program t more »

    We're all tired of your 'reasonable calls' with zero outreach to the community. You say its hindsight, but you did the same thing with PAYT and when you decided to play media chicken with our first re more »

    As limited as the police resources are, I certainly don't want them spending their time chasing down every kid out past 9:00 pm.  I want them chasing every kid and ADULT that's out at ANY hour causing more »

    Yep, they take last years total taxes, add 2.5%, divide by the total of the assessed property values and that becomes the tax rate for the year. So even if your property values/assessed values go down more »

    We should all go to the panel discussion on August 15th and let them know the truth!

    Wow. So the mayor magically found money at the last second. There clearly is no reason why he couldn't have found the money sooner. And best of all, he refuses to talk about where he found it or retur more »

    Well, I hope I'm wrong and something constructive comes of the negativity about a small but nice improvement to the city that is being put out here for all to see. more »

    This is a good thing that will help (but admittedly not fix) all the problems in the area. Hasn't anyone ever heard of the broken window effect? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broken_windows_theory So f more »

    The configuration of the area is horrible and deters positive traffic that businesses look for.  You step off the Malden T stop and you see a giant brick wall between the giant brick sides of the poli more »

    Waste pick up WAS part of our property taxes.  In theory (and I stress the 'theory' part since tracing the money trail would be difficult even if city hall was cooperative, which they wouldn't be), th more »

    If Malden approached PAYT like these towns did, I would support it.  I recycle more and throw out less trash than probably 99% of residents, so having people pay for their own trash instead of using m more »

    Here are links to two studies by Arlington and Andover that took the time to do research and engaged the community in implementing a PAYT program.  While it's obvious that Malden did not do either of more »
