College move-in weekend to feature inspections


BOSTON (AP) - Labor Day weekend is a big weekend for college students to move in to off-campus housing in Boston's neighborhoods. It will also be a weekend of city inspections.

Workers from several city departments will conduct targeted housing inspections, trash inspections and information drops in student-heavy neighborhoods throughout the three-day Labor Day weekend.

Mayor Martin Walsh said inspectors will focus on problem properties and improperly stored trash.

The city has also started a social media campaign called #Boston101 to highlight services available to students throughout the year.

The Inspectional Services Department will have up to 50 inspectors canvassing the Allston, Brighton, Fenway and Mission Hill neighborhoods.
