Channel 10 aired a segment about the tatterted flag at India Point Park over Memorial Day. A concerned citizen (a veteran) call the Parks Department to report this and nothing was done.
On Memorial day, there hung that rotten flag. It is obvious that a person at the parks department did not follow through, or the proper person was never notified, or it was blown off, but it took a Channel 10 report to embarrass the mayor of Providence, and the parks department for not doing their job.
I thought I was the only person who had this issue, either being told we do not have enough people, or we do not have money. Issues with hazard/unsafe conditions here in Warren fell onto deaf ears with the former town manager and other officials with the same excuses. Years back a phone call to Town Hall used to get a response to correct a problem, but in today's world it goes unanswered.
A good example of this was after last year's tropical storm. Five weeks later, the town of Warren was still trying to clean up the mess. The excuse was they were short-handed in personnel and overwhelmed with downed trees. Years ago, the National Guard was called to help.
Overall opinion is either the people in charge are not doing their job, but where are our tax dollars going? I do not see these issues improving, but only going to get worse.
