Clintonville Group Asks For Help With Community Rat Problem


The Clintonville Area Commission is asking Columbus officials to study the rat problem in the community, according to ThisWeek News.

The commission says residents are even starting to see the animals during daylight hours.

Columbus has dealt with city rat problems in the past, but a $275,000 per year effort was concentrated in Downtown, the Short North and the University District.

A resolution requesting the program focus on Clintonville will be sent to the mayor's office, the health department and code enforcement for consideration.

For now, residents are advised to lock down bird feeders, harvest garden vegetables frequently and limit access to compost heaps.
