THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, June 28, 2019 Page 9 Mayor launches modernized, accessible Revere.Org Continuing to improve Revere government, website uses data analytics to satisfy residents’ diverse needs Mayor Brian Arrigo on Wednesday announced the launch of the fully redesigned Revere.org, the offi cial website of the City of Revere. With a new design, new navigation, more functionality, and fresh content, Revere.org supports Mayor Arrigo’s eff orts to ensure the city government works for its taxpayers and takes full advantage of modern-day technologies. “City services should be easy to use, and city government should be accessible to everyone,” Mayor Arrigo said. “Our new website is going to help us engage more residents in the day-to-day workings of City Hall and provide the services and features that they’re looking for, quickly. Today NOISE | from page 1 the plant’s shutdown. “Built in the 1970s, Wheelabrator Saugus is the oldest active incinerator in the United States,” Vincent said in a statement she issued Wednesday. “What the people of Revere and Saugus have been experiencing these past ten days with deafening sound emissions clearly demonstrates that this plant is on life support, and it is time to pull the plug. For residents of Revere and Saugus who have been experiencing this highest-degree of noise pollution, it has been absolute torture,” she said. “Not only as their state representative, but as a neighbor and friend to many who reached out to my offi ce since Monday, June 17th, it has broken my heart to hear stories of people who have not been able to get a full night’s sleep in over a week and who have not been able to utilize their yards and eat outside on some of the most beautiful summer nights we have had so far this summer.” Vincent called it “simply unconscionable that this has dragged on for ten days.” But the legislator said she was encouraged by recent talks with representatives of the state Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP). MassDEP has been working with Wheelabrator on other operational practices that may be employed to further reduce noise issues, according to Vincent. “I thank MassDEP for hearing the cries of my constituents, and I hope the agency will continue to hold Wheelabrator accountable for its actions,” Vincent said. “It should be noted that since November, 2016, my constituents who live in the shadow of the Wheelabrator Saugus facility have had to endure these types of noises at all hours of the day and night no less than seven times due to issues at the plant,” she said. “I think it’s time they meet today’s standards or close. The reason why the plant is making this noise is because it’s a dinosaur and keeps breaking down. Wheelabrator issues apology In its statement on Wednesday, Wheelabrator spokesperson Nadeau said Wheelabrator Saugus will continue to accept waste from contract communities. “We apologize to our neighbors who were impacted by the venting and were understandably feeling frustration at the noise levels, which our entire team has been working to mitigate,” she said. Saugus Board of Health Chair William Heffernan said the town’s Health Department “immediately engaged Wheelabrator” after receiving numerous calls from residents about the noise. “Wheelabrator called me to address the issue and let me know the plan going forward,” Heff ernan said. “The silencer they were using was not performing as anticipated. Instead of continuing to annoy the public with the noise, they decided to shut down operations until they could install a more advanced silencer device,” he said. “They apologized for the noise and will not resume the work on the turbine until they can guarantee the noise is eliminated.” www.reverealuminumwindow.com 505 Broadway Everett, MA 02149 Tel: 617-387-1120 www.gkdental.com • Family Dentistry • Crowns • Bridges • Veneers/Lumineers • Dental Implants • All on 4 Dental Implants • Emergency Dentist • Kid Friendly Dentist • Root Canals • Dentures • Invisalign Braces • Snap On Smile • Teeth Whitening We are the smile care experts for your entire family we’re proud to launch a 21st century website that refl ects the innovative work happening in Revere today.” The redesign of Revere.org used data analytics to cater to Revere residents’ diverse needs.
