Property liens eyed in trash crackdown

Property liens eyed in trash crackdown - Local & Regional -

City councilors are expected to pass a home-rule petition today to put liens on the properties of those with unpaid trash fines, a move that comes days after the Herald reported Boston has not collected $3.4 million in code violations.

“I like the idea of getting tough on scofflaws and collecting money,” said City Councilor Jerry McDermott, who represents student-heavy Allston-Brighton. “Under the current system, it is too easy for landlords to say if no one is making them pay, why pay?”
