A resident from St. Elmo’s Street thanked the Supervisors for their action on the house with the rat infestation. She reported that things are moving quickly now with the house being emptied of trash and treatments from an exterminator. Solicitor Gary Asteak thanked residents for their patience, explaining that the township had needed time to work through the legal process and for the Court appoint a Guardian for the homeowner.
