Emergency Motion 31 from Councillor Daniel Ceitinn

That Dublin City Council: 


- notes with alarm the rat infestations which came to the fore during the summer in the new York Street flats despite works to contain the problem,


- acknowledges the regular rat infestations faced by City Council tenants as an ongoing public health hazard,


- recognises the work done to combat these infestations in some flat complexes with work done to bin storage areas, maintenance and improvement of public spaces, and other works done to combat infestations,


- regrets that the dispersion of these works has been constrained by resources and, consequently, has been uneven with consequences in particular for, but not limited to, older complexes,


- further recognises the consequent neglect to the remaining complexes which has damaged the City Council's reputation as a landlord,


- deems the current public health response arrangement with the HSE as unaccountable and recognises that pest control is the responsibility of the landlord,


- commits to expanding the City Council's in-house pest control capabilities,


- resolves to re-examine the Housing Maintenance budget in the context of the forthcoming budget to combat neglect and expand pest control, and


- calls on the Lord Mayor to ensure that a report addressing these matters is presented within 2 months.
