Animal Control asks that you become aware that the City does have a large amount of wildlife and we need your help to keep these animals safe.
Things you can do to help the wildlife from being a nuisance are:
contain all trash in proper closed containers
keep your outside grills clean of food once you're done cooking
keep grass, weeds and brush trimmed back and neat
check your chimney caps and all vents for loose areas
raise wood piles off the ground at least 6 inches
keep trees trimmed back from your home and other buildings
make sure there are no gaps under decks that animals can move in to.
there are wildlife repellent sprays on the market that can help detour the animals from your property. Moth balls also are a good repellant. Animal Control does have nuisance animal traps for a rental fee.
