At a special meeting held on July 14th, Alderman Heuston requested for local plumbers and tradesmen to offer their assistance, either pro-bono or deeply discounted, to the elderly and those in dire economic circumstances who have been affected by the flood. If you or someone you know may be able to help volunteer in this way, please call 311 or email resistat at somervillema.gov. We will set up a database and make sure your services are put to good use.
