Councilors George Rotondo and Arthur Guinasso both expressed concern that rodents could move from the Socio’s former home appliance location on Squire Road to other nearby properties.
The landmark of Sozio was destroyed in a five-alarm fire in February 2018. The shop has been demolished and the property is empty.
“The movement [to contact Inspectional Services and investigate the matter] speaks for itself, ”said Rotondo.
Guinasso stated that “There are many caves in and around Verizon and the ancient socio-local locations and local residents report that they are [rodents] there and flooded the neighborhood. “
“The least the owners can do is close these caves and put the necessary ingredients in them to rid the area of these rodents,” said Guinasso. “I want to ensure that the safety and health of the residents living there is guaranteed.”
The council unanimously approved the motions to ask the Revere Inspectional Services to investigate the situation of the rodents at the former Socio site.
