Acting on complaints from neighboring residents about unregistered cars on their streets, city inspectors and Boston Police last week swarmed Boston Best Auto, 3575 Washington St., Capt. John Greland at District E-13 reports.
Greland said that when inspectors arrived last Wednesday, they found numerous unregistered cars being advertised for sale to the public. And one, he wrote, was leaking oil into a catch basin:
A test conducted by the Boston Fire Department’s Hazmat Team showed oil in the catch basin. As a result, the business was ordered closed until the damage could be addressed and remedied.
The Inspectional Services Department will set up a hearing for the owner of the business where violations found on the property will be further discussed and addressed.
