Ridgewood NJ, the rat problem persists in the Central Business District . Once again sources are reporting a big rat problem behind Ridgewood coffee and apartments. Rats are not usually seen during the day unless disturbed from their protective harborage or because of intolerable competition from other rats. If rats are seen during the day that usually means a very large rodent population is nearby.
With all the heavy construction in the Central Business District the “rat issue” continues to resurface . This is a public safety issue that needs to be addressed more effectively. Perhaps a more coordinated Central Business District wide effort . The creation of a pedestrian plaza every weakened and all the renewed activity in town adds urgency to dealing with the problem .
With some restaurants asking for “vaccine cards ” you would think public health would be a priority , not just grand standing for headlines.
