Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick announces the county has implemented a plan to reinstate the County’s Rodent Control Program to respond to complaints and public safety concerns of residents. Details about the program were released on Wednesday, March 14 by the County Executive, and the County’s Health Department is now responding to requests for service.

 

“I am pleased that we are once again in a position to provide this service to communities like Kenmore and Tonawanda that have taken the responsible step of requiring garbage totes,” Legislator Hardwick said. “My concern is that we are also letting other communities, which haven’t been as responsible, off the hook. The rat problem will only be extinguished when we attack the root problem of their food sources.”

 

Rat issues can be reported to the County Health Department by calling (716) 961-6800. For additional information about the county’s baiting program or to speak with Legislator Hardwick, please contact his Legislative Office at (716) 858-8672 or email kevin.hardwick@erie.gov.
