City clamps down on sober homes and lodging houses

NEW BEDFORD — The residents of Ward 5 wanted action.

Not everyone agreed on what that action should look like — some didn’t even know. But the unsettled crowd of 100 people at the last Ward 5 community meeting expressed a unanimous demand that city officials do something to clamp down on unregulated sober houses.

“There are sober homes going up throughout the city,” Former Mayor Scott Lang said at the June 12 meeting. “It’s got to change, because it’s going to hollow out every neighborhood in the city.”

Knowing that targeted zoning regulations could violate anti-discrimination laws, some residents said the city should enforce existing building codes against sober houses so strictly that the properties go out of business.

Little did Lang and his neighbors know, a quiet code enforcement effort had already begun. 

This month, the city sent letters to more than a dozen sober houses telling them they need a lodging house license, which could require costly building upgrades. And the city has taken court action against two sober houses to investigate them for code violations.

Some people in the recovery community say the city appears to be targeting sober houses.

“It seems in the last year or so New Bedford has really cracked down on this issue,” said Denise Menzdorf, executive director of the Massachusetts Alliance for Sober Housing. She said she hoped the enforcement was fair — that is, not targeting sober houses — but she acknowledged it would be hard to know. 

Related ⇢

City spokesperson Jonathan Darling says the city is routinely enforcing the law the same way it does for all properties. The city sent licensing letters to all properties that qualified as lodging houses under state law, he said.

“The requirement is grounded in concerns about public health and safety, including, as we’ve witnessed firsthand in New Bedford, the risk of fire,” Darling said in a statement. “It applies to all lodging houses, including those that hold themselves out as ‘sober houses.’”

Sober houses, also known as sober homes, are shared living spaces for people in recovery from addiction. They generally don’t have clinicians and they aren’t treatment centers — instead, they serve as an intermediate step between treatment and independent living.

Recovery advocates say the ideal sober house provides a stable, drug-free environment where people can live for a few months while they get back on their feet. But some sober houses are more sober than others, recovery advocates say, and the worst ones can be hotspots for relapses and overdoses.

Sober housing is not a regulated industry, though operators can get a voluntary certification from the Massachusetts Alliance for Sober Housing, a nonprofit organization that works under contract with the state to maintain standards at sober houses. Ten properties in New Bedford have a MASH certification, out of at least 19 sober houses in the city.

Federal and state laws limit the city’s ability to regulate where sober houses can go. The federal Fair Housing Act bars cities from introducing housing policies that discriminate against people with disabilities, and substance use disorder qualifies as a disability. A state law called the Dover Amendment makes it illegal for cities to enforce policies that discriminate against congregate living environments for non-related people with disabilities that wouldn’t apply to families or other groups of a similar size. 

“We aren’t able to stop sober homes from coming to New Bedford,” City Solicitor Eric Jaikes said at the Ward 5 community meeting.

But some residents have been calling for the city to come up with a plan to control these properties since the fall, when Moreland Terrace residents protested the opening of a sober house in a historic home at 52 Ash St. They said a sober house didn’t fit the historic character of their neighborhood and should not be allowed to operate in a single-family home.

City enforces lodging house rules on sober houses

The city has taken the position that sober houses count as lodging houses.

On June 6, the Licensing Department sent letters out to owners of 44 properties saying their place qualifies as a lodging house, and they have to appear within 30 days to apply for a license or face possible civil and criminal penalties.

At least 19 of the properties are sober houses, The Light confirmed through multiple sources, and 16 of those were not registered as rooming houses a year ago.

“The letters from the Licensing Board were sent to every lodging house in the city,” said Darling, the city spokesperson, in a text message. “If new lodging houses come about, they will be required to be licensed in accordance with the law.”

The Fire Department has also been sending letters this spring citing a different state law on lodging houses, requiring the property owners to install fire sprinkler systems. The number of Fire Department letters sent was not immediately clear.

For the city license, a lodging house is defined as a house rented to four or more people who are not within the “second degree of kindred.” That would mean the relationship of an aunt or uncle, grandparent, niece or nephew, half-sibling.

Fire sprinklers are required for lodging houses with six or more people. Installing the sprinkler systems can cost tens of thousands of dollars.

This latest enforcement push follows one that took place in the spring of 2023, weeks after a fire in a rooming house on Acushnet Avenue left two people dead. It turned out that the house had no sprinkler system and a record of fire code violations. 

Mayor Jon Mitchell announced last July that the effort was getting results — six rooming houses had installed sprinkler systems, six more were installing them, two were facing city legal action, and five had shut down.

At least three sober houses were included in that enforcement push — one had a sprinkler system, one was actively installing a system, and one had ceased or reduced operations enough to not be subject to the sprinkler law.

Michael Phillips, owner of a MASH-certified sober house who received letters from both the Licensing and the Fire Department, said he was not sure what to make of it. 

“Why is this happening?” said Phillips, who owns the Courage to Change house on Thomas Street that can accommodate up to 13 men. “This is a MASH-certified house … I thought we were all set.”

The certification is not protection against enforcement of state laws on lodging house licenses and fire sprinklers. The state’s second highest court has ruled that the sprinkler law applies to sober houses. That decision by the Appeals Court in 2020 has so far been the last word on the case that originated in 2017, when a sober house operator in Fitchburg challenged that city’s enforcement of the state sprinkler law.

Scott Boucher said he received Fire Department letters in April, and the Licensing Department letters on June 14. He and his wife, Dawn, own two sober houses on Sears Street. He called this “selective enforcement” targeting a sober house, and challenges the claim that he’s running a public lodging or rooming house. 

In an interview and in written appeals to the state Automatic Sprinkler Appeals Board, part of the Massachusetts Fire Safety Commission, Boucher argued that his houses do not meet the six-person threshold for fire sprinklers. 

The 12 Sears St. house, which the city property record categorizes as “single family,” accommodates five women in recovery. The house at 6 Sears St., listed as “two family” in the city record, has one unit on the first floor, one on the second, each housing five women, Boucher said.

He said each unit has its own kitchen and bathroom and operates independently, and would not be subject to a sprinkler requirement if it were occupied by five related people.

He argued that a sober house should not be equated with a lodging or rooming house. 

“We are NOT OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC,” Boucher wrote in a two-page appeal mailed to the agency. “We have a rigorous intake process to determine eligibility only to women in recovery who AGREE TO ALCOHOL and DRUG FREE accountability.”

Dawn Boucher emailed a more simple appeal to the Licensing Department, asking for “reasonable accommodation as an alternative to the lodging application” for the two houses. 

Boucher said the estimates he’s been given so far for installing the fire sprinkler system, including the finish work, come to more than $90,000.

Michael Phillips, owner of the sober house on Thomas Street, said he’s been given estimates of $50,000 to $70,000 — money he said he doesn’t have. 

There is a relatively new state grant program for sober houses facing these costs, but the money in the first budget allocation does not appear sufficient to meet  demand.

Menzdorf, of MASH, said the organization working with the Department of Housing and Community Development has run a sprinkler grant program that launched about 18 months ago. The grants up to $80,000 per home are available to MASH-certified homes that have been operating for at least a year and found to be maintaining proper standards.

The first allocation was $3.8 million, she said, about half of which has already been committed to 27 sober houses across Massachusetts. There are 60 to 70 pending applications for grants, Menzdorf said, and a request for a new allocation did not make it into the state’s most recent budget.

City takes some sober houses to court

The city has filed a housing court case against Calderia LLC, the operator of the sober house at 52 Ash St., over building code violations. Five people currently live at the property.

A judge issued a warrant to inspect the property in May after the city received anonymous complaints that there was unpermitted construction and the property was being operated as a sober house.

As a result of that inspection, the city cited Calderia for violations of the electrical, plumbing, building, fire, and architectural access codes.

The violations included a citation for a large bulge in one wall, which an inspector testified was unlike anything he had ever seen before. Other building code violations included citations for a lack of guardrails and handrails on the porch, a cracked storm door, water damage on the roof, and a bathroom that was boarded up. A fire escape had not received a required five-year inspection.

The city also cited unpermitted electrical and plumbing work, and for not having fire sprinklers. Additionally, the property was cited for not meeting accessibility requirements.

Earlier this month, the city asked a judge to issue an injunction that would require Calderia to stop operating the property as a sober house, relocate all five residents, and fix the violations.

Andrew Tine, a lawyer representing Calderia, said the citations at 52 Ash St. were “nitpicking,” and pointed to the citation for a cracked storm door. He said the electrical work was only for a few wires, and it’s common practice not to pull permits for minor work.

“If someone wants to bust your chops, they can say you should have gotten an electrician involved,” Tine said. “The laundry list they came up with, to me, looks like someone said, ‘Go in there and find everything you can.’”

Tine also took issue with the property’s citations for violating accessibility codes, including wheelchair access requirements. He said sober houses could not exist if they all had to comply with accessibility requirements.

He said he thinks the city is targeting sober houses. Four sober house operators have contacted him in the last three weeks, he said.

In court filings, Tine wrote that the city did not provide his client with the required written notice of the violations before filing a court case, which is “unusual” and “indicative of discriminatory purpose.”

“The city has veered from its typical approach for handling these types of violations because in the ‘big picture’ the neighbors are complaining about the use of this property as a sober home in ‘their neighborhood’ and this is not about the city working with a Property owner to make a property safe,” the filing said.

Tine’s filings cite the Dover Amendment, a state law that protects congregate living environments for disabled people from discrimination.

On Friday, Housing Court Judge Donna Salvidio ordered Calderia to get the proper construction permits and come back for another hearing in July, though she did not grant the city’s request to move residents out. Instead, the property must keep its current occupancy at five or fewer residents, which is below the six-person threshold for the sprinkler law to kick in.

In the meantime, Calderia has asked the city for a “reasonable accommodation” under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Fair Housing Act to be exempted from accessibility requirements.

The sober house at Ash Street is not the only property facing court action by the city. On June 13, city inspectors entered a sober house at 7 Plymouth St. after a judge issued a warrant allowing them to inspect the property.

Ward 5 residents raised concerns about the house because the owner and a resident are registered sex offenders. Caezar D’Amante, the owner, was convicted of “dissemination of matter harmful to minors” in 2012 and “trafficking of persons for sexual servitude” in 2016, his public registration shows.

Matt Silva, a building inspector, along with a plumbing and an electrical inspector, were at the inspection last week. Also on hand were two inspectors from the city Health Department. 

Before he went into the house, Silva said his department got word from neighbors that it appeared there was some sort of work going on in the house. Meanwhile, department records showed no permits had been issued for work in the house. 

All five inspectors went into the house shortly after 2 p.m., and were inside for about 40 minutes. 

After the inspection, Silva said there were no apparent violations. Whatever work was going on was “not to the extent that I had heard.” He said there is still a question of how the owner intends to use the house. He said one person is living there, but there is more than one bed in the house. 

“It’s going to be more than one person living here,” Silva said. He said no further steps were planned at the moment, but much depends on how the owner decides to use the house.

Short thundery showers expected during 2nd half of June, with some warm & humid nights

MSS releases weather report for 2nd half of June

Be sure to have an umbrella if you’re heading out for lunch.

The Meteorological Service Singapore (MSS) said there are likely to be short-duration thundery showers in the late morning or afternoon on most days for the rest of June.

However, the weather should remain warm, with some nights expected to be humid as well. Temperatures may remain above 28°C at night, notably over the southern and eastern coastal areas of Singapore.

Short-duration thundery showers expected on most days in 2nd half of June

MSS said in a media release that prevailing Southwest Monsoon conditions are likely to continue in the next two weeks

Short-duration thundery showers are expected on most days in the late morning and afternoon for the rest of June.

On some of these days, the showers can get heavy due to large-scale convergence of winds over Singapore.

There might also be widespread thundery showers with strong winds between the pre-dawn hours and morning on one or two days.

Regardless, the total rainfall for the second half of June is forecasted to be near average over most parts of the island.

Temperatures expected to remain warm despite rain

Despite the forecasted rain, the daily maximum temperatures are likely to range between 33°C and 34°C on most days.

MSS warned that temperatures could even reach a high of slightly above 34°C on a few days.

Nights are also expected to be warm and humid, with temperatures likely to remain above 28°C. This is especially the case over the southern and eastern coastal areas of Singapore.

Highest daily maximum temperature was 35.5°C in 1st half of June

In its review of the past two weeks, MSS said Southwest Monsoon conditions prevailed over Singapore and the surrounding region.

MSS also highlighted the weather conditions last Tuesday (11 June) where strong day-time heating led to moderate to heavy thundery showers in the late afternoon.

The agency shared that the daily total rainfall of 90.8mm recorded around Lim Chu Kang that day was the highest rainfall recorded over the first fortnight of June.

The daily maximum temperatures for the period were also pretty high, falling above 33°C on most days.

Meanwhile, the highest daily maximum temperature of 35.5°C was recorded at Admiralty on 11 June 2024.

It did rain a lot — about half of the island recorded above-average rainfall in the first fortnight the month.

While Kranji registered rainfall of 200% above average, Sentosa registered rainfall of 53% below average.

Justin Timberlake charged with drink driving, arresting officer was supposedly too young to recognise him

Justin Timberlake arrested for driving while intoxicated in New York

Justin Timberlake has been charged with driving while intoxicated.

The pop star and 90s heartthrob was arrested on Tuesday (18 June) after being pulled over for running a stop sign and driving on the wrong side of the road, the BBC reported.

Source: @Variety on X

He has since been released without bail, but not before the news of his arrest — as well as his mugshot and a photo of him in handcuffs — went viral on social media.

Pulled over for ignoring stop sign & veering out of traffic lane

According to a police statement posted by People, Timberlake ignored a stop sign and failed to “maintain his lane of travel” while driving his 2025 BMW in Sag Harbor, an affluent town in the Hamptons, New York.

The incident occurred around 12.37am.

Source: @jessicabiel on Instagram

An officer pulled the 43-year-old singer over and arrested him after determining that he was “in an intoxicated condition”.

The BBC reported that Timberlake was described to have “bloodshot and glassy” eyes. There was also a “strong odour of an alcoholic beverage . . . emanating from his breath”.

Despite claiming that he only had “one martini”, his speech was slowed, he “performed poorly” on all sobriety tests, and he allegedly refused to take a breathalyser test, the New York Post noted.

Timberlake was subsequently taken into custody and held overnight before being arraigned at 9.30am.

The Daily Mail published a photo of a handcuffed Timberlake walking from police headquarters to the Sag Harbor Village Justice Court, where he was charged with one count of driving while intoxicated.

He was later released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to return to court for a hearing on 27 July.

Arresting officer reportedly didn’t know who pop star was

One amusing detail that emerged was that the arresting officer was supposedly too young to recognise Timberlake, who was part of the boy band NSYNC before launching a successful solo career in the early 2000s.

A source told Page Six that Timberlake muttered “this is going to ruin the tour” under his breath upon being pulled over.

When the officer asked: “What tour?”, the singer replied: “The world tour.”

Timberlake, who is married to actress Jessica Biel and has two children with her, is in the midst of his ‘Forget Tomorrow’ World Tour.

The Sun reported that he is due back in court on the same day his tour kicks off in Europe.

However, his team is seeing what they can do is ensure that his concert in Poland goes ahead as planned.
