I called the Department of Health and Mental Health and Hygiene's Pest Control Services 11/7/11.  They said they had no address for complaint.  Explained hole is between wooden construction fence and jersey barrier.  They say they will send an inspector.  I noted that as of last Thursday 11/2/11 garbage was still in this location.


We do see the severity of the issue regarding this issue.  Please also refer to the forum board http://www.atlanticyardswatch.net/rodent-infestation  as we are trying to create greater awareness regarding this issue and other similar cases.  Hopefully, this sense of urgency can lead to possible mitigation measures.
