West Coast Town Council will ensure that rodent control treatment will be carried out at Blocks 406 and 407 to curb the rodent problem in the area.
In an earlier article, STOMPer seabass had commented he is disappointed that his repeated requests for action on the many rat holes in this area have been ignored. He also said that the rodent problem is starting to worsen.
A spokesperson told STOMP:
"We're aware of the feedback on rodent sightings at Block 405, Clementi Avenue 1, and have been carrying out rodent control treatment.
"We've also extended the rodent control treatment to Blocks 406 and 407.
"The resident emailed the MP about the issue on 6 June 2010 and our MP has brought it to our attention.
"During his scheduled house-to-house visit in the vicinity on 9 June 2010, he also visited the site with our Town Council staff and asked that the surveillance and treatment be stepped up in view of the construction sites nearby.
"We would like to appeal to our residents to dispose of their litter properly to minimise the availability of food source for rats.
"We thank the STOMPer for the feedback."
