Make East Boston Yours
The bar for getting involved is low and civic groups and government are often eager for feedback and help. When in doubt, submit a 311 report, to the city’s system for residents to report non-emergency issues.
Contact Your Electeds
Your elected officials are often very responsive to comments and feedback. Try to contact the office who’s oversight is closest to your issue.
