While it doesn’t resolve a serious issue afflicting this region, the reopening of an apartment complex in Watertown demonstrates the progress that’s being made on widespread homelessness.

The building’s fire alarm system wasn’t working properly, and other sanitary and structural issues were cited. The Code Enforcement Department condemned the 25-unit complex, leaving dozens without shelter.
