Rodent Problem in Copps Hill Area Reported by Residents

By Phil Orlandella

It appears that because of construction in the area there has been spotting of many rats in several areas in the North End including the Copps Hill Cemetery and Snow Hill Street.

Apparently, the construction has forced the rats to higher grounds where they have settled in becoming more active during construction.

Reportedly, there are huge holes in the area and in the cemetery the likes of which residents haven’t seen before.

The Friends of Copps Hill are attempting to have the city and/or responsible organizations to help clear up the rodent problem.

            The Friends have recommended residents call 3112 to document the problem.
