NEW YORK POST STAFF REPORT
Posted: 4:07 PM, March 31, 2010
In the latest round of budget cuts, the New York City Health Department is slashing the number of pest control aides by nearly 70 percent.
The number of full-time workers who clean up trash on properties where rodents have been reported will drop from 84 to 27.
“It’s going to affect quality of life directly, giving more harbor to rodents, lowering property values,” Fritz Reid, head of the union that represents the workers, told amNewYork. “These people are cleaning up our neighborhoods.”
The city predicts the cuts will save $1.5 million next fiscal year, which begins July 1.
