CITY WORKERS in hazmat suits fumigated a house in East Germantown yesterday, the same day the Daily News wrote about neighbors' complaints of mice and roaches from that house swarming 12 other homes on the block. Rebecca Swanson, spokeswoman for the Department of Licenses and Inspections, said the city took immediate action yesterday after a caretaker of the homeowner admitted the woman was still living there and that he was unable to fumigate it. Neighbors said they thought the woman had moved out, leaving the home with piles of garbage inside.

ISSUE | BLIZZARD OF 2016 The neighborhood the plows forgot Mayor Kenney has been praised for the storm cleanup, but not by residents of East Germantown, where most of the streets as of Thursday had yet to see a plow pass through - not even on the bus routes ("Storming into good graces," Thursday). I have owned House at Pooh Corner Day Care in East Germantown for more than 35 years, and this is the first time I have seen the bus routes go unplowed. My teachers had to walk long distances to work because the Route XH bus was suspended for days.

The School District of Philadelphia and Imhotep Institute Charter High School said Wednesday that they had reached a settlement over allegations that the former charter administrators fraudulently billed the district for two special-education students. Imhotep, which has replaced its board and brought in new management, denied any wrongdoing. The charter has agreed to repay the district nearly $16,100 for inaccurate invoices. Investigators in the district's charter office and the city Inspector General's Office found evidence that the charter in East Germantown had billed the district for the entire 2013-14 academic year for a student who attended for only one semester.
