As someone who lives on the street behind the CVS Plaza, I am very concerned that 100 rats were seen near a dumpster at the plaza, there are many businesses in that plaza, including a restaurant. I have sent an E-mail to the North Reading Health Department asking them to investigate.

Jim, Thank you for this comment. I live in the neighborhood as well with a small child. I am very concerned about him playing in the yard now because of what he may find. Makes me reconsider staying in the area and using that plaza for any business.
