RATS! West Hartford Taxpayers caught in the trap?

Most of you have probably heard about the West Hartford Rat infestation. If not, you can read about it here.

What's interesting is why the Town of West Hartford is paying a vendor, Terminix, a hefty sum to the tune of $60, 000, plus to eradicate rats from PRIVATE dwellings and structures between Caya and Flatbush Avenue.

Is this a case where Scott Slifka, Joe Verrengia, and the Democrats are trying to buy votes in Elmwood?

The whole story seems a bit odd, and for what its worth, nothing can be found in the town minutes about a vote appropriating funds for this purpose. Very strange indeed.

This is a catch-22 for candidates, with an election around the corner since Democrats aren't about to rat out their own, and yet Republicans and Independents don't want to appear callous about the plight of Elmwood residents either which would lead to additional votes for Dems.

Let's see who has the guts to bring this strange expenditure up after Election Day. And should we expect West Hartford to pay for termite and carpenter ant exterminations next?

Yeah, and what have they done to help people settle their flood damage problems with MDC - especially with Mr. Verrengia on the MDC commission?
Those homes are still toxic!
I hope the people in Elmwood wake up and vote these guys out!

Who is paying for this?

Was this approved by the Council?
