Citizen complaint of the day: Why was the hokey pokey in Roslindale?

On Saturday, a disgusted citizen reported trash strewn all about Adams Park right as the farmers' market was opening and demanded to know where the local hokey man was ("hokey" being that trash can on wheels set up the hokey men use as they clean up our shopping districts).

The city responds this morning:

Closed. Case Noted. There is no more weekend hokey ..we cleaned it friday afternoon that the best can do ..u already have been told that a few months ago.

So that's what it's all about.

hate the slightly bitchy reply

And I have to call potential shenanigans on "we cleaned it friday afternoon". That cardboard looks like it's been lying around more than the few hours between Friday afternoon and early Saturday morning. Appears to be detritus from the Thursday trash pickup.

Can we get somebody who speaks English to represent the city? What an embarrassing public servant.

...by the same people who didn't plow your streets. There are no repercussions for Public Works plain and simple. Move along folks...nothing to see here.

I wish there was a way to like these posts, ala Facebook, because this one is pretty funny.

I would have contracted iRobot to build a fleet of municipal Roombas to clean our rubber sidewalks.
