City Councilor Kim Janey (Roxbury) reports on a big problem for the residents of the 202 apartments at Academy Homes along Columbus Avenue:
Due to a gas leak, residents living in Academy Homes are without gas. This means families are without heat and are unable to cook during the Christmas holiday. I am in communication with Urban Edge and the Management company. Volunteers may be needed to distribute space heaters and food. I will send another update to let folks know how they can help. In the meantime, please keep our neighbors in your prayers.

Once again, National Grid is putting families at risk by locking out its workers. The lock out needs to end. Bring back the locked out workers and stop jeopardizing the safety of our neighborhoods.
