Caroline Stewart, president of the Southwest Dearborn Heights Neighborhood Association, said there are infestations rats in her neighborhood and, despite frequent complaints, the city hasn’t done enough to fix the problem.
“Something has to be done,” Stewart said. “The residents of Dearborn Heights shouldn’t have to live in fear for themselves, or someone else, getting bitten and becoming sick because of this infestation. It affects the quality of life for all residents … nothing is being done about it.”
Mayor Daniel Paletko said he and the ordinance officers have done all they can to try to control the rat population.
Paletko said he has been in discussion with Stewart since last July. He said he has been to most of their association meetings and has heard their concerns and is trying to address them. Full Story
The Mayor in discussions with Stewart since last July are you kidding me and the Mayor in all this time never thought to ask the City attorney to write-up a new ordinance and let the council vote on it. No that would be councilman Ken Baron to do that. This poor woman and all that are having to deal with this Mayor yeah he’ll show up to your meetings nod his head take some notes tell you it’s on the top of his priority list walk away and not do a thing about it. This is just like the Mayor and people keep voting for him.
