Resident Finds Issue With Joe’s American Bar and Grill Dumpster

Outside Joe’s American Bar and Grill in the North End

“Joe’s American in the North End continues to have a filthy dumpster that attracts rats. The board of health has been there numerous times but why hasn’t this issue been fixed? When is it going to end? Is the city going to continue to allow them to have a filthy rat infested dumpster next to a high end residential building? This is a severe health hazard and is disgusting. Joe’s clearly is not responsible enough to have a dumpster and it should be removed immediately.”
