Ajax Investigating Rat Control Program

July 06, 2021 1:48 PM | Durham Region Home Builders' Association (Administrator)

The Town of Ajax has directed staff to investigate a Residential Rat Control Rebate Program.

Detailed in report LIS 2021-01, the Town is investigating ways to mitigate the current rat problem.

The report recommends that staff prepare the necessary by-laws to enable the Town to require, where appropriate, a Pest Clearance Certificate as a pre-condition to obtaining a demolition permit, a sediment and erosion control permit, or a site alteration/servicing permit.

Staff had also investigated the feasibility of having developers fund the cost of a Rodent Control Rebate Program through the collection of a security or a fee (e.g. through a development agreement), however, the town solicitor has advised that it would not be legally defensible to do so.
