The City of Pawtucket is stepping up efforts to combat a rat problem. The city gets ten to 15 complaints a week about the rodents.
The City of Pawtucket has set out 85 rat bait stations. But unlike previous years, where they might have gone unchecked for up to two months, they’re now being checked, and re-baited if necessary, every two weeks. Shawn Logue, the city’s Code Enforcement Director, said the rat problem is most prevalent in two neighborhoods.
