Complaints about rats and other vermin inhabiting longer grass areas in Cornwall, Ont. city parks has prompted the city to step up its mowing practices.
The city voted this week to mow parts of four parks which have been the target of public complaints.
The stepped-up mowing will increase the city’s maintenance budget by about $3,500.
Grass that had been left to naturalize in parts of Alguire, Menard, and Reg Campbell parks will now be mowed at the same height as the turf in Cornwall’s other parks.
