ANC Report: Rats, Cameras, Police
Here are highlights from the Sept. 4 meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E:
Marvelous Market, the food specialty shop at Wisconsin Avenue and P Street, was criticized for its allegedly poor work in keeping trash bins properly contained -- and too often overflowing -- and thus open to pests and rodents. “It’s a buffet for rats,” said commissioner Tom Birch. Commissioners questioned a Department of Health official and a representative of Marvelous Market. The business said it had installed locked tops and apologized.
Ten cameras have been donated to the Metropolitan Police Department by the Georgetown Business Improvement District, John Weibenson said. The BID, he added, also approved $300,000 to its budget for police overtime work.
A representative from the Shops at Georgetown Park, owned by Vornado Realty Trust, gave an update with no specifics on future tenants but added the mall’s garage was being re-done. The Wisconsin Avenue garage entrance is now closed but the garage’s Potomac Street entrance, at the back of Dean & Deluca, has re-opened for tenants of Georgetown Park condos.
Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E will meet Oct. 1, 6:30 p.m., at Georgetown Visitation Prep, 35th Street and Volta Place.
