Two of the most frequently cited concerns
in our recent member survey
were rats and trash. At our Wednesday,
March 22 meeting, a panel of experts will
discuss what can be done to combat these
persistent problems.
Georgetown is a lovely neighborhood not
only for people but, unfortunately, also
for rodents. Hear why our village has so
many rats and what you can do to help the
DC Department of Health reduce the rat
population.
In the last few years, both the DC Government
and Georgetown University have devoted
many resources to improving how trash is
handled. Learn about the DC Department
of Public Works’ education and enforcement
program, as well as about the University’s
activities in this regard, as developed in the
framework of the Georgetown Community
Partnership.
The speakers on March 22 will be: Gerard
Brown, the Program Manager in the Rodent
Control Division at the DC Department of
Health; Sonya Chance, the Ward 2 inspector
for the DC Department of Public Works’
Solid Waste Education and Enforcement Program
(SWEEP), and Cory Peterson from
Georgetown University’s Office of Neighborhood
Life.
Our host for the evening is Georgetown University.
The meeting will be held in the Social
Room of the Healy Family Student Center.
Come for an informative discussion and
check out this modern, attractive facility. A
reception will begin at 7pm, followed by the
panel discussion at 7:30.
