Davis Square Trash; Mass. Foreclosures Plunge

New, 5 comments

MASS.-WIDE—The commonwealth's foreclosure wave might just have crested: "During March, lenders filed 284 petitions to foreclose, the first step in the foreclosure process in Massachusetts. That number was down 82 percent from the number of petitions filed during March 2012, the Warren Group said." []

SOMERVILLE—Maybe those solar-powered trash cans aren't working so well: "During the recent Somerville Spring Clean Up, which took place at the end of April, 'One thing I couldn't help but notice was how, frankly, disgusting some of the trash cans are in Davis Square,' [Alderman Rebekah Gewirtz] said."
