Street Parking Reminder

Parking During Snow Emergencies

If you are leaving your car parked near your apartment during winter, please be aware of any street signs posted; "No Parking During Snow Emergencies." You don't want your car towed!. 

Heating Reminders

Stay Warm This Winter

In units that are heated by the landlord, heat must be on from September 15th through June 15th. The temperature in the unit must not be less than 68 degrees Fahrenheit between 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. and 64 degrees Fahrenheit between 11:01 p.m. and 6:59 a.m. There is a maximum allowable temperature of 78 degrees. (Code 23. 105 C.M.R. 410.201).

Tenants with complaints should report them to the landlord, preferably in writing. If the landlord fails to make the repairs after a reasonable time or if a problem needs immediate attention to eliminate a health risk, the tenant should report the violation to the City of Boston Inspectional Services Department (ISD) at 617-635-5300. Some common code violations include: insufficient heat or hot water, windows that are not weather-tight, and sidewalks or means of egress that have not been shoveled.
