121 Cacciola Place Faces Abandonment, Raccoon Infestation

ROCKY RACCOON(S)To the dismay of neighbors for almost two years now, raccoons, photographed above last year, enjoy their home at the abandoned house in Westfield at 121 Cacciola Place. The developer, Joseph Penyak Sr., had intended to demolish the house and rebuild. A nighttime photo taken on July 17 shows that the infestation is ongoing.

Government Reform Thoughts

At its best, governments protect the citizens they serve. Governing bodies and municipal offices purportedly exist to fight for the best interests of individuals in their communities. When any resident finds him or herself in an unhealthy or unsafe environment, every arm of government should spring into action to seek those accountable and not only demand, but also produce, a solution. - See year-to-date reform thoughts.
