Here’s a link to a story in today’s paper about the county’s vector control district trying annex Fremont. Fremont doesn’t have much in the way of vermin problems so the question is whether it’s worth it for homeowners to pay another $10 bucks a year for the service.
For some reason, Fremont doesn’t attract many rats. I asked Tri-City area sewer district honcho Rich Currie yesterday if his people see a lot of rats. He told me today that no one has seen one in 15 years. Cockroaches are prevalent though. We’ll write more about this as the vote nears.
