The City of Providence DPW needs to be more proactive.

What I mean is that the drains must all be mucked out annually. Not the spotty cycle. And it’s not just Providence DPW but the State of Rhode Island that has to chip in.

Providence needs to become a more proactive city in general. I’d like to setup a sit down with Mayo Jorge Elorza and explain to him the value in having public schools, a fire department, police department and so on but that true quality of city life requires drains be unobstructed by plant matter, etc.

It also means stop chasing pie in the sky dreams of public broadband – it’s never going to happen. But do what you can to make life better for the residents of the city.

For example – the snow statutes were updated but the city doesn’t track what fines were issued? That needs to be fixed post haste. And I know a public education phase was supposed to be included in the updates to the snow removal statutes. We need to tell people that not only do they need to clear snow, but also ice.

And I’m still miffed that 311 Broadway – the sidewalks there STILL haven’t been cleared. Instead we now have compacted snow and ice. For example it took me less than 30 seconds to find out that the property is owned by:

Owner WAMPANOAG INVESTMENTS LLC
Co-Owner
Address 1177 GREENWICH AVE
WARWICK, RI 02886

The registered agent is:

JOSEPH J. DEANGELIS, ESQ.
1177 GREENWICH AVENUE, WARWICK, RI 02886

So that’s who should be served notice.

Here’s Mr. DeAngelis’ phone number: (401) 737-6877

Go get em’.
