A volunteer advisory committee appointed by Mayor Gary Christenson back in 2012 recommended renting PAYT trash barrels to residents fed up with hunting for stores that carried the fl imsy bags known for ripping and sending trash to the wind. “I have always liked the idea of off ering residents options,” wrote Christenson in response to the advisory committee’s recommendation for barrels. But nothing ever came of it. Now, Matheson wants the City Council to take another look at the idea. Several councillors raised concerns that have blocked any real changes to the PAYT program, and chief among them is money. The city takes in around $1.2 million from the sale of the blue bags and pays out $1.7 million for curbside trash collection and another $900,000 for disposal. “You’ll have problems trying to neutralize this revenue loss,” said Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon, adding that he does not want to see the city forced to hit its reserve fund to cover waste disposal. Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley suggested sending the proposal to the Finance TRASH BAGS | SEE PAGE 12 Council meeting this week because she was busy at the birth of a new grandchild. However, she was concerned enough about the council’s ongoing discussion about rules of decorum that she enlisted Marcia Manong to read a statement during the public comment segment of the meeting. “I know it is the nature of our job as councilors that disagreements happen and tempers sometimes fl are,” wrote DeMaria. “But is highlighting our differences by strategizing sanctions with adversarial language that alienates constituents, and each other, really the best use of our time?” For the past couple of weeks, members of the Rules & Ordinance Committee have been discussing rules of decorum for the City Council and sanctions for members who stray outside of those rules. Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora proposed that the City Council adopt the sanctions outlined in Robert’s Rules of Order, a manual of parliamentary procedure widely used by all types of organizations and legislative bodies. Spadafora conceded that adopting the sanctions isn’t entirely necessary since the council already runs on Robert’s Rules and differs only when those rules confl ict with the council’s own rule book. Still, by formally adopting Robert’s Rules about sanctions for members who fail to behave appropriately during meetings and debates, councillors, and particularly the council president, would better understand what options exist to maintain order and get on with city business. Spadafora proposed adopting Robert’s Rules for sanctions after some tense debate on executive sessions: closed-door meeting held to discuss sensitive issues, such as contract negotiations, personnel matters and strategies in legal disputes. Earlier this year, Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley insisted on recording an executive session on the Malden Hospital property. Councillors responded by postponing the meeting to seek a legal opinion about the recording. O’Malley also filed a pair of Open Meeting Law complaints against the council and has suggested that minutes from prior executive sessions are inaccurate and possibly doctored. He also proposed a job performance review of City Clerk Tom Brennan, who he felt was responsible for inaccurate meeting minutes. While some residents who keep current with the ins and outs of city government applauded O’Malley’s push for transparency, others, particularly fellow councillors, felt his approach was unnecessarily confrontational and counterproductive. There’s no doubt the council has been busy responding to complaints, reviewing executive session minutes, and now with considering sanctions for disorderly behavior. This week O’Malley proposed a new set of rules of decorum and ethics for the council which focuses on calling out discrimination and harassment as well as insulting and abusive language in the course of public debate. O’Malley’s proposed code of ethics would apply to councillors in all public settings and on social media, and would be enforced by public admonition, censure and other actions that the council might deem appropriate. Councillors declined to send O’Malley’s proposal to the Ordinance Committee for review since the committee and the council are already sorting through the same questions and issues. In her statement, DeMaria asked if the ongoing discussion about decorum and punitive rule changes is the type of publicity the council wants. “Respect, decorum and morals and ethics cannot be forced or legislated,” she wrote. “I continue to urge each of us to stay focused on our work for our Malden. Clearly, there is not a shortage of work to be done. We must be better for each other and to each other. We must be better for Malden,” she said.

Page 2 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 8, 2019 ~ Op-Ed ~ Malden resident a proponent of cohousing M y wife and I have been citizens of Malden since 1985. We raised our family here. I am a retired Malden teacher having taught at Malden High School, Malden Middle School and for a short time at the Holmes School. I ended my public school career as the Brunelli House Principal some eight years ago. I am now the Principal at Pope John High School, the area’s Catholic high school. I am invested in Malden and I want the best for our city. I feel that this new initiative of cohousing is one that we as a city should welcome and in fact become a leader. I read the recent article in the February 15 Advocate about the Malden Planning Board recommending amendments to the city’s zoning that would define cohousing and establish rules that would allow cohousing communities to build in residential-offi ce zones. I commend the Board, and I encourage the City Council and the citizens of Malden to support these amendments. I would love to see cohousing come to Malden. It sounds like a great idea. Residents of cohousing have private condos with kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms. But the units are smaller than usual, because residents 8 Norwood St. Everett (617) 387-9810 Kitchen Hours: Mon-Thurs: 12-10pm Fri-Sat: 12-11pm Sunday: 1pm-10pm www.eight10barandgrille.com also have access to lots of common space. A large meeting hall and space for such things as fi tness, crafts and music all mean that neighbors in cohousing interact with each other much more than your normal neighbors, especially in this day and age. The increase of social isolation in our society is no secret. Loneliness has been labeled a health epidemic as serious as smoking or obesity by insurer Cigna and former Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy. It has also been linked to premature death. Cohousing is an antidote to the trends that people are less likely to spend time with neighbors, to join organizations and to be as civically engaged as they were 20 or 30 years ago. (When’s the last time you waited very long to vote in Malden?) An average cohousing community spends several years gathering its members and getting to know each other before it ever develops a parcel of land and eventually moves in. Neighborliness and engagement are baked into the whole process. Cohousing began in Denmark in the 1970s and came to the US in the 1990s. Locally, there are cohousing communities in Cambridge and Jamaica Plain. Several more are in western Massachusetts. Along with neighborliness, energy effi ciency and a decreased reliance on cars are often core values. A 2016 New York Times article about cohousing cited research fi ndings that, compared to the rest of us, cohousing residents feel an improved quality of life after they move in, “vote at twice the rate of the average American” and feel a stronger connection to nature. Cohousing sounds like a winwin for the city and those wishing to make Malden their home. But Malden hasn’t been so welcoming. I am friends with a member of Bay State Commons, a cohousing group that has been trying to build 30 owner-occupied condos on Pleasant Street. That group’s experience shows why current zoning is a poor fi t for cohousing. Despite having the support of Mayor Christenson, several city councillors and the abutters to their site, the group’s requested variances for such things as average unit size and garage confi guration were rejected by the Board of Appeals. I was at the meeting and was beyond amazed. If Malden’s standard zoning can’t accommodate cohousing, then maybe a set of rules for this type of living is worth the trouble. The proposed amendments apply only to the city’s four residential-office zoning districts and do not alter most regulations, like the citywide three-story maximum for multifamily housing. I think of these zoning changes as a little experiment that could improve Malden. What have we got to lose? Just some good neighbors, I guess. Thomas J.

Try our $10 DINNER Menu w/ 2 sides House announces $1B GreenWorks Resilient Communities Investment Plan tate Representative Steven Ultrino joined his colleagues in announcing a new initiative to invest $1 billion over the next 10 years to help communities across Massachusetts adopt technologies – including clean energy, energy effi - ciency, and climate change resiliency measures – that cut greenhouse gas emissions, fortify infrastructure and reduce municipal costs. The initiative, which is known as GreenWorks, builds on a long-standing House approach providing concrete tools directly to communiS ties with an immediate impact. “This long-term investment will help Massachusetts cities and towns build sustainable and resilient communities,” said Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo. “Not only will cities and towns have the ability to cut greenhouse gases and lower long-term energy and operating costs, but they will adopt Massachusetts-made innovative technologies and put people to work on cleantech infrastructure projects.” “I am excited to support this investment addressing climate change in our local communities,” said Rep. Ultrino. “I look forward to working with our local offi cials in helping Malden attain these funds once they become available.” These competitive grants are for cities and towns to fund projects including, but not limited to energy-effi cient buildings, solar, micro grids, energy storage, electric vehicle charging stations, or resiliency infrastructure. Under the proposal, the Executive Offi ce of Energy and Environmental Aff airs will administer the grants through its agencies. “Under Speaker Deleo’s leadership, the GreenWorks plan represents an exciting opportunity to pursue innovative approaches to funding clean energy, energy effi - ciency, and climate change resiliency projects that will make a real impact in cities and towns across the Commonwealth,” said State Rep. Thomas Golden, Jr., the chairman of the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities, and Energy. “I applaud the Speaker’s strong commitment to advancing Massachusetts towards a clean energy future, and I look forward to productive conversations in the House.” Speaker DeLeo unveiled the legislation during a visit to the Greentown Labs Global Center for Cleantech Innovation. Located in Somerville, Greentown Labs is the largest cleantech business incubator in the United States. According to the Greentown Labs website, it includes “more than 70 cleantech companies” and has incubated * A Delta Dental Premier Provider Dr. Mario Abdennour, Dr. Bhavisha Patel, Dr. Priti Amlani, Dr. Bruce Goldman and team. “120+ startup companies,” which “have collectively created more than 900 jobs and raised more than $260 million in funding!”

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 8, 2019 Page 3 Mayor Provides Update on Fellsway & Highland Improvements Special to Th e Advocate t’s been a well-recognized problem for decades by anyone who travels the Fellsway and Highland Ave area. The oddly shaped island that sits between Highland Ave and the Fellsway is confusing to even the experienced motorist, flat out bewildering to a motorist navigating the area for the fi rst time and has resulted in countless accidents. Yet for years, solving this problem on a state-owned road proved I elusive to all. Mayor Christenson announced previously that a solution was in the works. At the most recent State of the City address, the Mayor provided an update that indicated the project was going out to bid in April, with the work scheduled to be complete by the end of 2019. “I’m so pleased that the residents of this area will finally see relief from this dangerous situation. This is truly a partnership between the City of Malden, DCR and our State Delegation led by Senator Jason Lewis, who collectively came together to fi nd and fund a permanent long-term solution to this issue,” commented Mayor Gary Christenson. “It was one of my priorities at the start of my second term, and although complicated challenges like this always take longer than I would like, in the end, I think residents will be extremely pleased.” The long-term fix calls for the elimination of the island and reconfiguring of the intersection. Utilities will be relocated, and the result will be a more traditional intersection, with full state-of-theart signalization. The overall project cost is $1.1 million dollars, with the majority funded by DCR, and the rest funded by the City with a great assist from an earmark secured by our State delegation.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 8, 2019 Page 5 Questions raised about community preservation proposal By Barbara Taormina T he Community Preservation Committee (CPC) has recommended funding for eight projects this year and, if approved by the City Council, the biggest slice of this year’s $637,549 preservation pie will go to the Roosevelt Park Improvement Project. The Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA), which is spearheading the project, hopes to create a multi-sport fi eld on the 3.7acre site on the corner of Salem and Branch Streets, next to the Salemwood School. The project also includes an outdoor classroom where students can contribute to the design of planned rain gardens. Earlier attempts to renovate Roosevelt Park have been stalled because the city was unable to cobble together enough money to leverage grants needed to launch the $2.6 million project. The MRA is requesting $1.9 million in community preservation funding that will be paid out over several years.

DeCRISTOFARO REGISTER OF PROBATE March 8, 2019 Daylight Savings Time – check your alarms, too The state fire marshal issues a reminder that there’s more to this weekend than just changing clocks. Daylight Savings Time begins this weekend. Everyone needs to set their clocks forward an hour before they go to bed tomorrow night (Saturday, March 9), as the time switch takes place offi cially at 2 a.m. on Sunday. But State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey urges homeowners and apartment tenants that it’s also time to take care of some potentially life-saving matters. “This weekend as you change your clocks, check your alarms,” Ostroskey said in a statement issued by his offi ce this week. “Working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms can save your life. Replace aging alarms, and unless they have a 10-year sealed battery, replace the alkaline batteries now,” the state fire marshal said. Replace aging smoke alarms “Smoke alarms, like other household appliances, don’t last forever,” said Chief Timothy J. Grenno, president of the Fire Chiefs’ Association of Massachusetts, “Every 10 years the entire alarm needs to be replaced, not just the batteries,” he added. The state fire code requires replacement battery-operated smoke alarms to have 10-year, sealed, non-replaceable, non-rechargeable batteries in older oneand two-family homes. Manufacturers generally recommend smoke alarms be replaced after 10 years and carbon monoxide alarms after fi ve to seven years. Newer models with 10year sealed batteries are designed to last longer and do not require replacement batteries. “Fire offi cials see too many disabled smoke alarms in fi res when people really needed them to work … We hope that if smoke alarms are easier to maintain, people won’t be tempted to disable them,” Chief Grenno said. Time is your enemy in a fi re “Time is your enemy in a fi re, and working smoke alarms give you precious time to use your home escape plan before poisonous gases and heat make escape impossible,” Ostroskey said. “Remember: Smoke alarms are a sound you can live with.” In the average house fi re, there are only one to three minutes to escape after the smoke alarm sounds. “No one expects to be a victim of a fi re, but the best way to survive one that does occur is to have working smoke alarms,” Grenno said. “Take a few minutes to protect those you love by changing the TIME | SEE PAGE 10

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 8, 2019 ~ Political Announcement ~ Page 9 Linehan announces run for Ward 3 City Councillor M y name is Amanda Linehan, and I am excited to announce that I am running to represent Ward 3 on the Malden City Council. Malden is at a crossroads, and we need community engagement and a strategy to sustain our strengths and tackle our challenges. We need leaders who will think beyond the next election cycle, and who welcome citizen participation at every level in our government. As a mom, a homeowner, and someone passionate about creating livable cities, I am committed to the work that lies ahead. When my husband Mark and I chose our home on Blomerth Street in 2011, we felt immediately welcomed by the neighborhood and that feeling of community only grew when our daughter Georgia joined our family in 2013. She is now in Kindergarten at the Beebe School, and we have made lifelong friendships and are deeply involved in our community, working to make our city the best it can be for everyone. I’ve spent my career in community engagement, communications and urban planning, and I have over a decade of experience in project leadership, budgeting, and management. I’ve worked across local, state, and regional government to bring innovative ideas and community-driven solutions to our most pressing problems, and I will bring that commitment to public service and eff ective outreach to Ward 3’s seat on the City Council. Constituents can expect a high level of community engagement, transparency and responsiveness from me, grounded in a philosophy that listening and collaborating are the most effective ways to lead. I promise to always return your call, because your voice matters and your government works for you. In my full-time job, I work as Communications Director for the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) in Boston, where I’ve partnered with Malden on open space, bike share, complete streets, education funding, addressing housing needs, clean energy, and advocacy on Beacon Hill. I also serve on the Board of Directors for the Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA), where we work to create jobs, revitalize neighborhoods, promote economic development, refurbish city parks, support public art, and make Malden aff ordable for our residents. I served as Editor of the Malden Observer from 2006 to 2008, I was an original member of the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Walkability in 2012, and for the last three years I’ve been honored to serve on the Board of Directors for the Asian Community Development Corporation (ACDC), which serves Malden through bilingual housing, fi - nancial literacy counseling, and a youth leadership program. Some of the key issues that friends and neighbors have already told me are important to them include preserving our beautiful parks and trees, and fi nding ways to enhance recreation opportunities; addressing traffi c and parking challenges; ensuring Ward 3 is a safe place for all commuters, including those on foot, using cars, bikes, strollers and wheelchairs; and keeping Malden a welcoming place where everyone is valued and can fi nd a safe, aff ordable home. I believe our diversity is our strength, and we need more voices in City Hall advocating for everyone who calls our community home. As a parent, homeowner and transit rider, I share the concerns of the neighborhood and I want our schools, roads, Amanda Linehan parks and cultural institutions to have the resources they need to serve our community well. I would be proud to partner with our leaders on the School Committee, in City Hall, and at the State House to communicate, get results, and give residents a say in the decisions that affect them. Malden is in the midst of great change, with a record-breaking real estate market, many families moving to town, new stores and restaurants revitalizing our business areas, and the ongoing redevelopment of City Hall which will reconnect Pleasant Street and Malden Square to Ward 3 for the fi rst time in a generation. We’ve always been a great place to live, so it’s no surprise that renters, home buyers and small business owners have taken note of all we have to off er. Now, it’s more important than ever for Ward 3 to have a strong voice on the City Council, to advocate for our residents and to make sure this growth and change brings benefi ts for everyone who lives and works here. As someone who has worked with dozens of communities, I know how important it is to plan ahead. On every issue, from growing schools to broken roads, we need leaders who will strategize and focus on the long-term investments necessary to sustain our community for generations to come. I believe we can accomplish our goals and make Malden an even better community to live in, and I’m excited to bring my perspective and all of your voices with me to the City Council. I look forward to connecting with you before Election Day, and welcome you to get in touch with me. Tell me about your experiences in Ward 3 by emailing amandaformalden@ gmail.com or by calling or texting me at (617) 388-1556 (that’s my cell phone!). I can’t wait to meet you, and I hope to earn your vote on November 5.

Then take a step stool and some 9-volts to your parents or older neighbor’s and ask if you can refresh their smoke alarms,” he said Senior SAFE Saugus is one of 242 fire departments across the state that have grant-funded Senior SAFE programs. Seniors who need help testing, maintaining or replacing smoke alarms should contact the Fire Department or the Saugus Senior Center for assistance. “Four out of every 10 of the people who have died in fi res last year were over 65 … We want our seniors to be safe from fi re in their own homes,” Ostroskey said. The $2,600 Senior Safe grant that Saugus received for the current fi scal year enables the Fire Department to provide fi re and life safety education to the town’s elderly. Seniors have a high risk of dying in a fi re. Fire and burns risks for seniors include cooking, smoking, home oxygen use, and electrical and heating dangers.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, March 8, 2019 Page 11 FUNDING | FROM PAGE 7 Still, including an artificial turf fi eld in a project that hopes to draw the bulk of its funding from preservation money seems like a plan at odds with the spirit behind community preservation. “As members of this committee, as residents of this community, we need to do our homework on artificial turf, its questionable safety and the environmental eff ects of removing natural green space,” Sullivan told the council. Unlike natural grass, which absorbs pollution and prevents environmental damage, artifi cial turf contributes to environmental problems. Sullivan said roughly 1,800 trees would need to be planted to off set the carbon footprint of an artifi cial turf fi eld. Artificial turf can also raise surface temperature by as much as 40 degrees, she said. Although low-maintenance artificial turf has become a popular and cost-effective alternative for municipalities, Sullivan said the jury is still out on the safety of crumb rubber used as fi ll on the fields. “Ground-up tires contain a host of dangerous chemicals, which is the cause of continued research and studies on the safety of such fi elds,” Sullivan told city councillors. And what do the kids for whom the park is being renovated think about artifi cial turf vs. natural grass? Sullivan has been discussing the two options with her students, who agree that artifi cial turf would mean less mud and more play time on the field. But her students also said it hurts to fall on fake grass, artifi cial fi elds are hot and the crumb rubber meant to cushion and protect athletes fl ies everywhere and gets stuck on everyone. Sullivan said that when she explained the proposed plan for Roosevelt Park, 95 percent of her students were unhappy about the loss of the real grass even though it gets muddy. Sullivan invited city councillors to visit her fi fth-grade students to hear their opinions and concerns about the Roosevelt Park project. “My door is always open for your visit,” she said.

Other councillors wondered about the cost of providing barrels for residents, the potential rental fee and possible problems with missing or stolen barrels. Ward 6 Councillor David Camell asked if offering barrels would have contract ramifi cations with JRM, the city’s waste hauler, and if renegotiating the contract is even an option. There was also a concern that trash barrels might put a dent in residential recycling. According to the city, Malden’s recycling tonnage has increased by 75 percent since the start of PAYT. The PAYT program was born out of a need to cover a budget shortfall back in 2008. Seven years later, Christenson vetoed a proposal to cut the price of the blue bags from $2 to $1 over the course of several years, because of an annual structural defi cit that ranged from $3$4 million. But the city’s fi nances seem to be in much better shape, and as Matheson pointed out, new money is coming in from parking meters and more is on the way from casino mitigation funds and marijuana sales taxes. “If we can’t give this kind of relief to our residents, I think we’re doing something wrong,” he said. Ward 7 Councillor Neal Anderson said the questions and concerns raised by councillors are issues that will be examined by the council’s subcommittees. Councillors agreed a joint Finance and Ordinance Committee would be the next best step for the proposal. ~ Home of the Week ~                                                                                                  $449,900         View the interior of this home right on your smartphone.       ~ Obituaries ~ Andrea E. Vatalaro F amily & friends are invited to attend a Memorial Mass on Saturday, March 9 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Anthony of Padua Church, 250 Revere St., Revere for Andrea E. Vatalaro, who passed most unexpectedly on Saturday, February 23rd at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital, following a brief illness. Born in Boston, she spent her early years in the Malden-Everett area, and graduated in 1991 from Malden High School. Almost all of Andrea’s working career was spent in the banking business. Since 1999, Andrea, found a home at the East Cambridge Savings Bank of Cambridge. The administration at East Cambridge Savings Bank realized the “diamond in the rough” that presented herself there and encouraged her work ethic and saw to it that it be rewarded with executive placement. As a loan officer, she was most sought after because of her abundant patience with customers and their families. Her loss will be realized and mourned for a very long time. Although she was most young at 46 years, she took the role as “Matriarch” of her family, giving her dear mom, Kay, a respite from the many years that Kay had the lead. Andrea also followed her mom in her footsteps as a dedicated volunteer at the Boston Higashi School of Randolph. The Higashi School was founded in 1987 to help children & young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder reach their full potential through the methodology of Daily Life Therapy. Andrea is the devoted mother to Khyle A. Hope & Tristian X. Hope, both of Everett. Andrea is survived by her faithful companion of 32 years, Jason C. Ward of Everett. She was the proud daughter to the late Joseph Vatalaro & Kay F. (Prebensen) Carroll. She is the dear sister to Esther M. Vatalaro of Winthrop, Maryellen Vatalaro of Everett, Paul Vatalaro of South Carolina & the late Wendy M. Strauss & Alan J. Vatalaro. She is also lovingly survived by her Aunt, Eileen T. Prebensen of Illinois, many nieces, nephews and cousins. Visiting hours are respectfully omitted and interment is private. In lieu of fl owers, remembrances may be made to the Boston Higashi School, Attn: OBITUARIES | SEE PAGE 13
