Discussions on setting some priorities and goals for NEWRA Clean Streets Committee kept going in circles as the committee could not create any objectives.
Household trash placement, dirty streets and much needed enforcement by the City of Boston Code Enforcement took up most of the discussion throughout the community meeting that only attracted about ten residents.
While complaints were flying all over the hall, the only two things that really came to a conclusion were more enforcement is needed to resolve these issues and another meeting needs to be held with Code Enforcement and elected officials to make an attempt to curb the problems.
The committee decided to cancel its January monthly meeting but go forward with its February meeting on the 15 at 7pm in the Nazzaro Community Center, 30 North Bennet Street.
The committee hopes to have Code Enforcement and Boston City Councilor Sal LaMattina at the February meeting.
As they do each month, the committee nominates a business or resident to receive its “Good Neighbor” Award which is presented for helping to keep the North End cleaner by sweeping the sidewalks and curbs in front of their place of business or homes.
The December winner is Antico Forno of Salem Street, Carla Gomes owner.
