NYC Mayor’s $300 Fine for Rat Infestation Is Dismissed

According to Andrew Siff’s reporting, the “Rat Action Plan” includes four anti-rat measures designed to crack down on rats in the city.

The mayor of New York City was exonerated after being falsely accused of rat involvement.

After Mayor Eric Adams challenged the validity of a $300 charge issued for rodents found in a townhouse he owned in an administrative hearing for the city, the fine was overturned days later.

Adams disclosed on Tuesday that he had invested thousands of dollars into rodent prevention measures. The fine was lifted on Thursday when the hearing officer found that there was no cause for further action.

The mayor was found to have “installed rat traps around the property and helped educate and persuade his neighbors to take similar actions to battle infestation,” as reported by The New York Times.

On Friday, Fabien Levy, Adams’ press secretary, reported that the hearing procedure had gone off without a hitch.

“Mayor Adams is a true believer in the principles he preaches,” Levy remarked. He paid thousands of dollars to get rid of the rats in his Brooklyn home because “he means it” when he calls them “filthy critters that need to be destroyed.”

The penalty announcement came a week after Adams called for applicants to fill the role of “rat czar” and head the effort to get rid of the vermin.
