  1. You are going to see more & more rodents. Certain residents are putting trash on the streets wherever & whenever they want &
    there are those that do not pick up after their dogs. We have the best fed rats in the city. We have 100 restaurants in this
    small neighborhood, why would they ever leave? The city has not made any attempts to increase fines & this is why the problem
    still persists. People only get away with what you allow them to get away with. It is a simple as that.
