Trash persists in Garland

I am writing again about the trash carts and Sanford and Son junk yards. in or town.


Also we have a rat farm next door to us; the rats have taken over our property. I am on a fixed income and I don’t think it is right for me to have to buy rat poison. I have called the town hall, including the mayor, about this problem, but I just get the run around.


I have been told several times that the town would have the owner of the rat farm clean up. Trash carts continue to be left on the curb five days after the pickup day and one cart is parked at the front door. Nasty, nasty, nasty!


Some people just want a place to eat and sleep. The town officials are not doing their job.
