Dear Billy T and Somerville Speakup Line,
There is this thing called supply and demand. The solution is we need more housing units. There are existing, standing structures, and backyards which could be converted into housing units.
If the city continues to increase property taxes, and water / sewer bills – the costs will continue to be passed along in higher housing costs for all.
This city and other cities should be working with landlords who are keeping their places as rentals.
