A meeting to address the rodent problem will take place June 23rd

At Council Member Letitia James' initiative, a meeting addressing the rodent problem in the vicinity of the Atlantic Yards site is to take place this coming Thursday.

Many residents believe construction at the Atlantic Yards site is the origin of the problem, through a combination of disrupted nests, neglected abatement and new food sources.  Sources for food and water that sustain the rodents are also available in the nearby residential community, most particularly as a result of improperly contained garbage.   The problem cannot be fully addressed unless the many contributing factors are addressed.

Time:  Thursday, June 23rd, 6 to 7 pm

Place:  Soapbox Gallery, 636 Dean Street  (please note this is a new location)

Sponsors:  Council Member Letitia James, Dean Street Block Association, 6th Avenue to Vanderbilt

Invited:  NYC Department of Health, NYC Department of Sanitation, Empire State Development Corporation, Forest City Ratner Corporation

All are welcome.  Tell your friends and neighbors.
