Not only is Rodgers Forge a warm and caring community, but it boasts a vigilant Board of Governors. At its July meeting, members of the board voted to ask Baltimore County for a Code Enforcement Sweep.
Jennifer Helfrich, Rodgers Forge community president, said the sweep will take two days and occur the week of Aug. 29. More information, including dates, were published in the August Rodgers Forge newsletter, and were handed out to residents.
This sweep will concentrate on rat harborages and contributing factors to rat problems, but will not only be limited to those. The board wishes to wipe out any problems or threats of problems, before they multiply.
How fortunate the Forge is to have a watchful and caring Board of Governors.

I hope many readers attended one of the Baltimore County Department of Aging's public hearings on its area plan on Aug. 9.
The plan is a document required of all area agencies on aging that describes the functions, presents demographic trends and outlines major goals and objectives to be achieved between 2012-15.
The hearings this week were held at the Arbutus and Parkville senior centers. For more details on the plan process, call 410-887-2594.
Let us hope that the triple-digit temperatures are over and that we can enjoy the remaining summer days.
Of course, I don't know what has happened between the time that I wrote this column and the time that it was published, we can only hope for the best!
