Erie County Legislator Thomas A. Loughran (D-Amherst) joined County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz announcing the re-establishment of the county’s rodent control outreach program March 14.
The County Legislature approved funding the rodent control program, supported by County Executive Poloncarz, Legislator Loughran and Legislature Democrats, in the 2012 budget, after the previous administration had eliminated it.
“These are services that our constituents demand, and Erie County should be the lead agency providing these rodent control services,” Legislator Loughran said. “Simply put, common sense prevails.”
The return of the rodent control program started Thursday, March 15, and people with rodent control concerns can call the Erie County Department of Health at 961-6800.
