In May 2022 NYC Mayor Eric Adams was fined after health inspectors found “fresh rat droppings” at his Bedford-Stuyvesant, New York, townhouse. According to a report from Boston.com, Adams was fined $300 after ignoring a summons and is fighting the fine in administrative court.
During a hearing, Adams said he spent nearly $7,000 fighting off the infestation.

Mayor Adams claims that is aimed at people who ignore their infestations or do nothing to resolve them. He claims that he actually took steps to take care of the problem.
“I took those steps,” Adams said, “and will continue to do so.”
The timing of this is interesting as it came just after the city posted a job listing offering a salary of upwards of $170,000 for a "highly motivated and somewhat bloodthirsty" candidate to take on the city's rat infestation.
The hearing officer for Mayor Adams' case stated that there will be a ruling within 30 days.
