  1. I own the small lot next to the BHA housing on Commercial St. Up until a few years ago they stored their trash inside. Now, for no apparent reason, they store it outside and other residents throw their trash in the bins because they aren’t locked. I’ve seen rats running from those trash bins several times.
    Issuing a ticket is a joke. They need to either store the trash inside or lock the bins.
