Let's talk about rats

Members of LUNGS (Loisaida United Neighborhood Gardens) are hosting a public meeting tomorrow (Saturday!) afternoon to discuss rats... specifically, Mayor de Blasio's recently announced $32 million plan to help reduce the number of rats in several neighborhoods, including the East Village.

The meeting is at 1 p.m. in the Green Oasis Community Garden, 386 E. Eighth St. between Avenue C and Avenue D.

What happened to the minty rat bag program that the Mayor foisted on the city so he can hook up a campaign donor to his in office city hall superpac slush fund

I don't see any more squirrels around VillageView anymore.

Those minty garbage bags do nothing. Garbage should not be on the street in bags, period. The DOH is offering a free Rat Academy on August 10 that I recommend everyone attend -

The program is interesting and it gives you a chance to ask questions directly to the DOH people involved in all this. One person fighting an army of rats will certainly lose, but a whole neighborhood/city working together can do it.
