Plea to clear lots, house
Two abandoned overgrown lots have one Prerogative, St George resident “fed up” and living in fear.
The elderly resident, who requested anonymity, said she had put up with the overgrown lots for more than a decade.
On Thursday health officials put the public on alert about rats and mosquitoes. A tripling of dengue fever numbers and the incidence of leptospirosis also forced health authorities to urge owners of vacant lots to clean up their properties.
The old woman in St George told the SATURDAY?SUN that she was also fearful because two robberies had taken place in the area and she believed they could have been avoided if the lots were cleared.
The woman said also that the abandoned house on the property closest to hers was rodent-infested.
