So I have a great case that my neighbors' backyard is a rat habitat, just waiting for occupants.

But I'll just say I saw some already.

Can I report it anonymously to 311 and still be effective?
Yes, but most the times is best to give your name.and if you report anonymously you might have
To report it more then once just make sure you write down that report # every time you call,date and time
Good luck 🚯

I have done my complaints on the 311 website. It works just as effectively if you choose to remain anonymous. After you complete the report you are given a file number and you can go back on a few weeks later, enter the number and see what action has been taken.

I have to say that I am surprised but every time I have used the 311 system for such complaints the issues have been taken care of....it actually seems to work.
