2 PAWTUCKET JUNE 13-19, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION tion, and sale, or the current owners moved forward with repairs to the properties. The nine targeted properties in 2018 are on Paisley Street, Magill Street, Magnolia Street, Armistice Boulevard, Thomas Avenue, Centre Street, Vine Street, Randall Street and Mineral Spring Avenue. Officials weren't offering up exact addresses due to various concerns, but said these properties aren't difficult to pick out. The 2017 properties were 105 Ballston Ave., 237 Randall St., 94-96 Englewood Ave., 116 Sterry St., and 312 Walcott St. All the properties are residential, according to Lauren Greene, spokes- woman for Grebien. Properties were chosen with a particular emphasis on those that have had a history of code violations. In some cases, the city has taken care of cutting the grass and removing waste, then billing the own- ers, she said. "These properties have been sum- moned to municipal court, fined or been ordered to fix the violations and still have not remedied the situation," she said. Confirmation that vacant properties have no water service and that there is no work being done on them also acted as triggers for the actions, she said.
