Pockets of rodent infestations have popped up in the East End of Watertown this summer, said Town Councilor Angeline Kounelis.
She has heard from residents in the area of Kondazian Street, Coolidge Hill Road and Crawford Street – a neighborhood near the Mount Auburn Cemetery. More recently she learned about infestations in the area of Bigelow Avenue, Elton Avenue, Melendy Avenue, Quimby Street, all streets coming off Nichols Avenue.
Kounelis has brought the problem to the attention of Steven Moore, director of the Health Department. She said residents can take action to stop the problem from growing.
"There is a lot of development in the area disturbing the rodents," Kounelis said. "I hope residents work with us and make sure trash is in secure containers and dumpsters are closed."
