Residents again demand that UNT do something about rat-infested house

Upper Nazareth Supervisor’s meeting – September 7, 2022


September 22-24 – Community Days at Tuskes Park


A resident from W. St. Elmo Street reported that the neighborhood is still dealing with a rat problem originating from an infested house. (Complaints about this problem were reported to the Supervisors in July and August). Residents reported that they’ve recorded pictures and videos of the rats and one homeowner announced that RidEt has installed 4 bait stations in their backyard and, so far, has paid $600 for extermination services. Residents reported that they’ve made repeated calls to the Zoning Officer and all have been ignored. Brian Sayago says he looked up the house in the township records and the owner has been cited for Vector Control issues in the past. The Board voted to formerly request the Zoning Officer to inspect the house.


After a discussion on updating the township website, Supervisors approved a motion to obtain cost estimates to make the website ADA compliant.
