on behalf of the Town Health Officer:

Now that the weather is getting cooler, we have had more reports of rat sightings in town, especially where there are grain-eating animals and birds.  I would like to encourage everyone to be aware of the issue and to take steps to secure grain stores, reduce food waste around homes, and place traps.  I have some effective tips for dealing with rats when a den hole is found, so please don't hesitate to reach out if you need some advice.  You can reach me at 765-4069


Your faithful Health Officer, Steve Marx
