More than 2,000 tickets were issued during the move-in weekend by various wings of the Boston Inspectional Services Department, less than half the number of violations found during the same time last year.
“Over the two years we have been putting a lot of effort on the problem student neighborhoods,” said Bryan Glascock, ISD commissioner. “I think the landlords have gotten the message that we are not going away.”
The Allston/Brighton area recorded more than 800 trash-related violations during the weekend, the most of any neighborhood in Boston, according to figures from ISD. The second highest fined area, Mission Hill, recorded nearly 300 apartment violations, and the Back Bay had 274 violations. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
